7. Pulp Fiction
Written by Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary
The lives of two mob hitmen, a boxer, a gangster’s wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in four tales of violence and redemption.
Why It’s Innovative: Beyond playing with traditional structure, the writers managed to weave four stories into one masterfully. While this became somewhat of a gimmick in movies since its resounding critical, financial, and pop-cultural success, this film was the first to do so in such a successful fashion that resonated with audiences.
