TheTrueMovieFan’s review published on Letterboxd:
This controversial debut film from acclaimed director Quentin Tarantino tells the story of a bloody aftermath of a failed robbery, where the criminals attempt to uncover the betrayer in the group.
Harvey Kietel, Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen produce career best performances, amplified by the strong supporting cast, featuring the likes of Chris Penn and Lawrence Tierney. The script and the clever plotting also contribute to the film's overall quality, with quotable dialogue, entertaining characters and truly memorable scenes, beit the infamous "ear" tableau with Madsen or the fantastic opening, in which Buscemi's character presents a strong argument as to why he does not tip.
Perfectly directed by Tarantino, Reservoir Dogs announced Tarantino as one of the greatest cinematic talents of his time, whose career was completely transformed by this groundbreaking movie. Furthermore, the film has an incredible soundtrack (featuring classics such as 'Little Green Bag' and 'Stuck in the Middle With You'). Reservoir Dogs also features a strong message about the consequences of your actions and remains one of the most important films ever made.
VERDICT - With stunning performances from the leads, an absolutely brilliant script and great direction, Tarantino's 'Reservoir Dogs' is arguably one of the greatest films to come out of the 90's and has rightfully earned its place in movie history.
