Pulp Fiction the other day -- for the first time in more than a decade -- I was amazed at how many more places and place names I recognize now that I live here in Los Angeles where the film is set. Most notably, Jimmy (played by Quentin Tarantino) lives my neighborhood: Toluca Lake.
So when The Wolf says, "We're going to a place called Monster Joe's Truck and Tow. Now Monster
Joe and his daughter Raquel are sympathetic to our dilemma. The place
is North Hollywood. So a few twists and turns aside, we'll be goin' up
Hollywood Way," I now know what he's talking about!
Oh, and it's a damn fine film, that Pulp Fiction.
