Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Director: Quentin Tarantino

Starring: Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Steve Buscemi, Lawrence Tierney, Edward Bunker, Quentin Tarantino, Randy Brooks, Kirk Baltz, Steven Wright

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Every dog has his day.

Plot: After a simple jewelery heist goes terribly wrong, the surviving criminals begin to suspect that one of them is a police informant.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again? Gladly.

I didn't see this until after I saw PULP FICTION (1994) in the theater. I was so blown away by that one I just had to see what else this Tarantino fellow did. Great film. I digs me some crime/caper films...only this one doesn't show you the caper. The performances are solid and Michael Madsen's "Stuck In the Middle with You" scene is brilliantly uneasy. Tarantino used that song so well that it's hard for me not to recall that scene whenever I hear it. That's one thing he's excelled at, the music selections. It's a great soundtrack and a great film with some great dialogue. What a promising start to a brilliant career.
