The movie Pulp Fiction centers around a mysterious briefcase, the contents of which is described as shining with an inner light and is so beautiful it captivates anyone who looks at it.
Marsellus Wallace really wants to get it, which is in line with the Oath of Fëanor that the sons of Fëanor were bound by, namely to recover their father's Silmarils.
Jules Winnfield keeps quoting Ezekiel 25:17, which isn't actually Ezekiel 25:17 but is instead a description of Maglor's (son of Fëanor) life.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.
During the First Age, Maglor ruled in “Maglor’s Gap”, the valley between Morgoth's domain and the lands of the Elves. He held this valley for 450 years until Morgoth finally conquered it. Once this happened, Maglor led the retreat of his people, thereby “shepherding the weak through the valley of darkness”.
He then fled to his brother Maedhros' fortress in Himling where he helped defend Maedhros’ lands and people, thereby making him “his brother’s keeper”.
During this time, he adopted the young Elrond and Elros, who had been orphaned after their parents fled across the sea, thereby making him “the finder of lost children”.
And finally “striking down with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers”, is what he spent quite a lot of time doing in defending his brother's land.
Maglor is possibly the only Noldo still remaining in the world and if he were still alive in our times, he would remain bound by the Oath of Fëanor and be hunting the Silmaril.
Maglor's mother-name is “Makalaurë”, which means that “Marsellus” is barely even a pseudonym. There is even precedent of beings in Middle-earth masking their true appearance (cough Sauron cough). Thus allowing a lithe, fair-skinned, Elf to be a bald, black, man.
So could it have been a Silmaril in the briefcase that Maglor had to find again after someone recovered it from sea where he had thrown it?
