Lawrence Bender’s Successful Career in Film

Published Post author

Lawrence Bender attended the University of Maine, gained a degree in civil engineering and an interest in professional dance. Despite these two passions, Mr. Bender is best known as one of Hollywood’s greatest movie producers.

His first taste of production was with Tales from the Darkside, working as a grip. He then produced two movies, Tale of Two Sisters and Intruder, before finding his big break with the film Reservoir Dogs. Since working with Tarantino on Reservoir Dogs, Bender has produced a large percentage of Tarantino’s work.

Lawrence Bender, like his frequent collaborator, Tarantino, makes cameo appearances in many of his films. He was a police officer in the beginning of Reservoir Dogs and can briefly be seen in Kill Bill: Vol 2.

An Inconvenient Truth

This is a 2006 documentary produced by Lawrence Bender; Davis Guggenheim took on the role of director.

An Inconvenient Truth is all about climate change and former Vice President Al Gore’s educational campaign about global warming and climate change.

The film went on to win two Academy Awards. It also saw great success in the box offices, grossing 50 billion dollars, and was praised by critics.

A less successful sequel, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, was released in 2017.

Pulp Fiction

This is just one of the classic films produced by Lawrence Bender. Pulp Fiction released in 1994 to critical success. The film also saw impressive numbers in theaters, grossing 213 million dollars.

Pulp Fiction takes on the view point of several individuals and progresses in a non linear way. Tarantino first had a hard time finding a studio to back the film, but eventually it became the first film fully backed by Miramax.

Pulp Fiction has a heavy-hitting cast including, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Lawrence Bender Best Film

Published Post author

Lawrence Bender is perhaps one of the greatest film producers of our time. He has created many wonderful works and has been nominated and won multiple awards in the film industry. With that being said, we’re going to be going over Lawrence Bender’s life and I’ll tell you why I love his movies so much

Lawrence Bender was born in the 60s to a Jewish family. He grew up in the Bronx, New York City, New York. While in high school, Bender planned to go into the field of civil engineering. One of the reasons for this was because there were great jobs in this field and because his grandfather was a civil engineer. After graduating high school, Lawrence Bender studied at the University of Maine and obtained his degree in civil engineering. Over the years, Bender became fascinated with dance and wanted to become a professional dancer. Unfortunately, an injury permanently sidelined him from what he loved. He then transferred his love for dance to a love for film.

Bender has created many films that have been great hits such as Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, and An Inconvenient Truth. My favorite movie of his would have to be Good Will Hunting. In the movie, protagonist Will Hunting is faced with many challenges and obstacles in life. Hunting has had a rough past, being an orphan and going through physical abuse. While working at the university as a janitor one night, Hunting solves a very difficult problem that not even the smartest kids in the class can answer. The professor stops him one night and he becomes a mentor to Will. Will also faces obstacles with Skylar, his girlfriend who doesn’t know his past but wants to care for him. In the end, I love this movie because of the many challenges that Will overcomes despite his troubled past.

Another film that I enjoyed was An Inconvenient Truth. In this documentary, Al Gore highlights climate change and shows how it is affecting the planet. He shows how humans are accelerating global warming. Overall, it is a great work by Bender and Gore both.
