For sure Pulp Fiction had much more depth than his other movies (although I've never seen reservoir dogs; shame on me). However, it still has his over-the-top violence and lack of any meaningful themes (and thus is still shallow like his other movies).
Ultimately Tarantino has made a living off of shocking people and including controversial topics in his stories.
