RARA-AVIS: Higgins and Tarantino

Interesting point - I've seen a lot in the media about the films that influenced Tarantino but, even if he doesn't look like it, I wouldn't be surprised if the guy has read quite a bit of HB as well (I suppose the title
"Pulp Fiction" ought to give a hint of this, but I've still never heard that much discussion of what "fiction" actually influenced his films. With the exception of explicit book to film adaptations, there is a tendency to treat the media as if they're totally independent of each other.
