Not Tarantino's best film, but a brilliant directorial debut from a director who's among the best of all time. Perfectly acted, well written, and stylish, RD is a film that cannot be missed. A lot of this film reminded me a lot of 12 Angry Men because much of the film focuses on men talking in an empty warehouse, yet each scene was intense with riveting dialogue. "Are you going to bark all day little doggy, or are you going to bite?" "Why am I Mr. Pink?...Because you're a f***ing fag!!"

"Are you gonna bark all day, little doggy? Or, are you gonna bite?﻿ I use to dislike this movie as I was too young for it, but now on a second watch years later, I absolutely loved it. I really have evolved as a specie. The dialogue, acting, directing, music and the ending. What's not to like. Also major praise to Tim Roth, who spends most of the movie on the floor dying and crying in pain while drenched in fake blood.

Tarantino has yet to find his thematic transcendence with this first work, but his witty talent for writing compelling dialogue is on full display. Dialogue-wise, this may be his best-written work, full of tons of interesting cultural references and character moments. I find greater power in his later work, but, as a dark crime comedy, Reservoir Dogs is pretty entertaining.

Our Daily Free Stream: quentin Tarantino - Reservoir Dogs. Tarantino beginnt mit dem Dreh an Kill Bill 3! Deshalb gibts heut seinen Erstling. - Quentin Tarantino war einer der talentiertesten Autoren der frühen 90er. Reservoir Dogs schliesslich seine erste eigene Regie-Arbeit, die wie eine Stilübung daherkommt. Wer Reservoir Dogs sieht, möchte meinen: Nicht schlecht und als nächstes mal einen richtig guten Film! Reservoir Dogs bietet einen Besetzungs-Coup! Angeführt von Lawrence Tierney, der nicht nur im Film gerade aus dem Knast kommt. Vermutlich klingt er deshalb so authentisch! Tierney gibt Joe Cabot, einen Gangster, der ein Team für einen Raubüberfall zusammengestellt hat. Der Schlüssel zum Erfolg: Niemand kennt den Anderen und deshalb nennen sie sich Mr. White, Mr. Blonde oder Mr. …

One thing this Tarantino classic is brilliant for is the script alone. Tarantino is by far the best in the business when it comes to on screen charectors and written dialogue! Reservoir Dogs is excellent proof of that and is one of the best casted movies that i can remember in a long time. Chris Penn (rip) who i thought wasn't that great of an actor during his short lived career, however he was brilliant as well. If you have never seen any of Tarantino's work, then i definatly suggest starting here as it will only leave you either wanting more or not. You see you either love Quentin or you dont their doesnt seem to be any inbetween. I myself before seeing this for the first time (RD was my very first Tarantino film ) did not like to sit through films that were heavy in dialogue as i …

At the beginning of the nineties, Kurt Cobain and Nirvana looked in disgust at the formulaic, soulless lumbering cash cow guitar music had become and using cues from grittier, purer classics of the past singlehandedly swept away the self serving excesses of the genre and revolutionised it forever. Quentin Tarantino did exactly the same thing with cinematic crime drama. He examined the logistics of both being an undercover cop and planning a heist and introduced believable characters who spoke like real people; they weren't just posturing stereotypes punctuating another set of pointless explosions and car chases. He created an ensemble cast of actors for their charisma and ability, not their box office drawing power. He scored it with wit using obscure music from the past that …
