Reservoir Dogs (1992)

It’s not hard to see why Tarantino has had such a great career after seeing his first film, Reservoir Dogs. “A heist film without the heist” is a great idea and I love how the film is so much like a play, particularly in the staging and blocking. There’s a sincerity to the film (particularly in Roth and Keitel’s characters) missing from some of Tarantino’s other works. It’s a supremely enjoyable and well-made film.

I give it four colours, and a loaded gun.
