Pulp Fiction is a great movie. But something was bothering me. I had no idea what was inside the Pulp Fiction briefcase. So, through a friend of a friend of a friend who had a two-hour conversation with Quentin Tarantino himself, I now know. So I thought I would pass along the information because it makes the movie even 100 times better than it already is.
Quentin Tarantino Explains What’s Inside The Pulp Fiction Briefcase
Remember the first time you were introduced to Marsellis Wallace. The first shot of him is of the back of his head, complete with a band-aid.
Then, remember the combination of the lock on the briefcase was 666.
Then, remember that whenever anyone opens the briefcase, it glows, and everyone is amazed at its beauty.
Now, bring in some Bible knowledge, and remember that when the devil takes your soul, he takes it from the back of your head. Yep, you guessed it. And what is the most beautiful thing about a person: his soul.
That’s right, Marsellis Wallace had sold his soul to the devil, and is trying to buy it back.
The three kids in the beginning of the movie were the devil’s helpers. And remember that when the kid at the end came out of the bathroom with a “hand cannon,” Jules and Vincent were not harmed by the bullets. “God came down and stopped the bullets,” because they were saving a soul. It was divine intervention.
“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”
