Reservoir Dogs (1992)One thing this Tarantino classic is brilliant for is the script alone.… More 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 found them immensly boring. That changed and was only cemented after also viewing his Pulp Fiction (Another charector/dialogue enriched film). For those who have yet to see this cinematic masterpiece let me fill you in a bit. 7 men all hired by crime theif expert Joe Cabot to perform a job on a jewelry store that has according to sources a load of diamonds that just came in from Brazil, after the job goes very badly the men who survived the aftermath shootout with the police were to show up at the rendevous point. We get three of the men Mr. White (Harvey Keitel) Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) pulling a badly injured Mr. Orange (Tim Roth) who had taken a bullet to his belly who are at the rendevous point first and let the dialogue roll... All of the men seem to believe that the heist was a setup but have to unfortunatly stay put until the arrival of Joe Cabot to tell them further instructions. Kudos here to Michael Madsen who portrays, most excellently the psychotic Mr. Blonde aka Vic Vega who was definatly my favorite charector in the film. This is a movie i can easily watch 1000 times over and over again as it remains as one of the best films i have ever seen!
