Wax Museum with a Pulse: Aesthetics, Reflexivity and Intertextuality in Pulp Fiction

Derek Dubois's article for the peer-reviewed journal Film International entitled "Wax Museum with a Pulse: Aesthetics, Reflexivity, and Intertextuality" has just been published in the journal's latest issue (16.1).

The essay is a detailed analysis of aesthetics, reflexivity, and intertextuality within the Vincent Vega and Marsellus Wallace's Wife segment of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.  

The essay argues that Tarantino oscillates between modes of Classical Hollywood and Art Cinema film-making with the dual-purpose of creating a world populated with psychologically complex characters as well as crystallizing his auteurist style.
