    Synopsis


    Reservoir Dogs
    In 1992, Reservoir Dogs transformed Quentin Tarantino practically overnight from an obscure, unproduced screenwriter and part-time actor to the most influential new filmmaker of the 1990s. The story looks at what happens before and after (but not during) a botched jewelry store robbery organized by Joe Cabot (Lawrence Tierney). Mr. White (Harvey Keitel) is a career criminal who takes a liking to newcomer Mr. Orange (Tim Roth) and enjoys showing him the ropes. Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) is a weaselly loner obsessed with professionalism. Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) has just gotten out of jail after taking the rap on a job for Cabot; he's grateful for the work but isn't the same person he used to be. While Mr. Blonde goes nuts during the heist, the thieves are surprised by the sudden arrival of the police, and Mr. Pink is convinced one of their team is a cop. So who's the rat? What do they do about Mr. Blonde? And what do they do with Mr. Orange, who took a bullet in the gut and is slowly bleeding to death? Reservoir Dogs jumps back and forth between pre- and post-robbery events, occasionally putting the narrative on pause to let the characters discuss such topics as the relative importance of tipping, who starred in Get Christie Love!, and what to do when you enter a men's room full of cops carrying a briefcase full of marijuana. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      An inspired masterpiece of a story

      My favorite scene in the entire film is when Tim Roth's character has to learn his "in" story to tell the criminals. His boss tells him he has to know the story inside and out but it doesn't have to be memorized, just the details have to be there, and he needs to own it. It's a montage of him rehearsing the story, telling it to his boss, to an empty apartment, practicing story beats, pauses, things to do with his body in between words and sentences...it's acting at its best as it becomes an actor, pretending to be a cop, pretending to be a criminal, rehearses his deception. The story itself is sliced into digestible segments like a Kurosawa film where the segments reveal the whole picture and serves as the blueprint for how Pulp Fiction was ultimately edited together story wise. If you love films or are interested in becoming involved in film in any fashion, this movie should be at the top of your homework list.

      tarantino's first calling card

      Posted
      cenobite7

      not everyone in the independent film industry has the luck or the success that tarantino has with his first calling card. surprisingly, this one still looks good even after 15 years have elapsed. leave it to lions gate to give this film it's proper upgrade with a spiffy tin gas can case & a matchbook sleeve with spindle for the dvd. ofcourse, all the extras are here. you guessed it. the previews, deleted scenes, etc. what more could you want? the film was great upon initial viewing & still looks good today. i can highly recommend fans of this film or those who like gangster/ heist films take notice if you haven't already seen this. while not the best work tarantino has ever done, you won't feel cheated after viewing this one. the dialogue is still funnier than ever in that trademark tarantino way & the characters are still amusing after numerous viewings. i often refer to reservoir dogs as scarface on laughing gas.

      Tarantino's Debut Film

      This is Tarantino at his best. A strong dialogue driven character piece that involves amazing actors in outlandish situations. The dialogue is crisp, the direction astounds and the story involving. There are scenes that make you squirm and there are scenes that make you laugh. Overall, an enjoyable experience...The opening shot alone with the "dogs" around the table discussing tips and Madonna sets the tone for an amazing movie to come. The disection of the crime and the organization that goes through it as well as many of the surprise twists keep you on your feet till the very last "shot". A great debut for a great career.

      Tarantino's first film as director and for some still probably his best film overall. A taut, violent, unconventional, and at times amusing crime film. The script is phenomenal. Terrific and unforgettable performances by Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, and Steve Buscemi. And Do Not read the synopsis on this site or any other site if you have not seen the film, it is full of too many spoilers. The less you know the better.

      Greatest Tarantino movie ever made hands down. Pulp Fiction ranks second to me. If you're looking for a great movie with classic witty dialogues and character developments, you're in for a treat with this movie. Forget the actuon, the conversations are enough to make your mind laughing and entertained. Only Quentin Tarantino could pull it off.

      This movie blew me away way back when it came out. Now I can enjoy it again and again on Bluray. Smart dialog and great story telling are Tarantino trademarks and this is a perfectly executed example. Everyone is on point in this film. Great movie hands down one of the classics.

      Not Worth The Buy If You Have On Dvd

      Posted
      kevman79

      ‘Resevoir Dogs’ is one of Tarantino’s best films. However, as in most of his pictures, the subject material and inclusion of unnecessarily violent sequences, exclude a good percentage of potential audience patrons. I can't say this Blue-Ray is worth the pricetag if you already have the previous dvd versions.

      Not Worth The Buy If You Have the Previous Edition

      ‘Resevoir Dogs’ is one of Tarantino’s best films. However, as in most of his pictures, the subject material and inclusion of unnecessarily violent sequences, exclude a good percentage of potential audience patrons. A good release, although not worth the buy if you already have the previous special edition.
