comment Why is Drunken Angel considered to be a masterpiece?

comment How did Pulp Fiction spawn Travolta's comeback?
Ian nailed the answer I think - I would just add that Travolta's character was such a polar opposite to his previous roles (a violent drug user) that this was an aspect that was focused on by reviewers and added more meat to his resume.
