This is one of the classics for me. I remember watching this Directed by Quentin Tarantino
years back with an ex boyfriend and it being one of our Produced by Lawrence Bender
favorite movies. Really talented and wonderful actors whose Written by Quentin Tarantino
roles are flawless in this film. I can't hear the song "Stuck in Starring
the Middle with You" without thinking of this movie. People
who have seen it know what I mean. There are some intense Harvey Keitel
scenes of violence so definitely not for the squeamish. It is a Tim Roth
film for people who are into big crime movies, action and
who don't mind some violence. It is about thieves who learn a Chris Penn
lesson about who you can really trust. Sometimes you can't Steve Buscemi
even trust the same people you do "business" with. I have not Lawrence Tierney
seen this movie in a really long time. Maybe it is time to sit Michael Madsen
down and see it again. It would definitely bring back some Cinematography Andrzej Sekuła
memories and I am sure the dialogue will come back to me Edited by Sally Menke

RESERVOIR DOGS REVIEW
First I want to summarize the movie.
There are six criminals who are
essentially strangers to one another that
are hired to carry out a diamond
robbery. From the start they are give
false names (with colors like Mr. Pink) so
that they won't get too close to each
other and will focus on the job at hand.
The opening scene is the criminals
having a discussion about the robbery in
When the robbery takes place the police
show up unexpectedly at which point
panic spreads among the group of
criminals. Two of them are killed in the
shootout that occurs during the robbery.
The remaining criminals assemble at a
rendezvous point at which point they
begin to suspect that one of them has
betrayed the group.and is an
Quentin Tarantino's film is a master
class study that slowly exposes the
characters of this group of criminals. The
film can be very subtle at times. The film
however is extremely violent in its
content right from the start. The events
of the film are revealed through
flashbacks to the robbery and other
previous events that have taken place
but we are seeing it after the robbery
has taken place and they have met at
their rendezvous point.
Once the idea has been put into the
minds of the audience as to a traitor
within the group the audience member
is focused on trying to figure out first if
this is what happened and second who
the traitor is. In this sense it also is a
mystery to figure out. I will say that a
traitor is revealed in this film but I will
go even further than that and say that
the whole group had characteristics of
being traitors. And being a traitor has it
The film leaves you mesmerized
thinking can people really be this
vicious, this cruel, this hardened and
