The Many Classic Productions of Lawrence Bender

Many film producers never gain recognition for what they do in Hollywood. Lawrence Bender is different. He has cemented himself forever in Hollywood due to the long list of classic films produced by Bender. Just a few of the incredible films produced by Lawrence Bender are Good Will Hunting, Pulp Fiction.

Bender didn’t always have the intention of becoming a film producer. His parents were both teachers, but Lawrence Bender decided to learn from his grandfather and become a civil engineer. He even obtained a degree in civil engineering from the University of Maine, but, finding a passion for dance in college, he would never put his degree to use.

Before becoming involved in the film industry, Bender was a professional dance before facing a career ending injury.

Bender’s official entry into the film industry came in the early 80s, as he worked on the set of Tales from the Darkside. The first film produced by Bender was a typical slasher film called Intruder, but, in 1992, with the release of Reservoir Dogs, Lawrence Bender finally became a force to be reckoned with. Partnered with Quentin Tarantino, who directed Reservoir Dogs, Lawrence Bender created many classic movies in American film.

One such classic movie is Pulp Fiction. Like a lot of Tarantino’s work, Pulp Fiction is played out of order. The chronological order of events may be mixed up, but the movie is very easy to follow. Due to the way the movie is shown, a major character is able to be killed off without taking him out of the narrative completely.

Pulp Fiction is centered around several individuals from different walks of life. A boxer, the wife of a criminal, and two hit-men make up the ensemble of characters in the movie.

Typically, everyone knows of the Chainsmokers for the upbeat vibes and party music that is centered on electronic beats and smooth melody.

Complete with deep rock sounds and a dark tone, The Chainsmokers latest hit single “Sick Boy”, is something new altogether for them. According to their latest interviews, Alex and Andrew decide to go in a new direction for several different reasons, though it was mainly to grow as artists. Since they first became famous, all they have produced is the same party music that is meant to be fun and speak to a specific generation. However, they want to speak to their audience in a way they never have before and connect with them on a deeper level.

Their new song “Sick Boy” takes a deeper look into the lives that we as people live today, centered around social media and technology. In an attempt to let their fans and their critics know they are more than just celebrities making tons of money and living the good life. They are aware of the issues going on in the world, and they want to reflect on those issues in their music to speak to their audience.

Since first going public, “Sick Boy” has been received quite well for the Chainsmokers, especially over in Europe and the Midwest where darker music is much more popular. According to the Chainsmokers, there is much more to come in the future, along with many collaborations with great artists as they have done in the past.
