Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Reservoir Dogs is an essential film. It marks the debut of Quentin Tarantino of course but it’s also the template for how to take a small amount of money and deliver what was a landmark, career defining movie. It’s raw, in your face and smart both using the cliches of the genre and defining new ones that would spawn a million copy cats for years to come. What’s surprising is just HOW well the film holds up all these years later. Its power & its energy drives you from one scene to the next leaving you breathless, all wrapped around some brutal violence and THAT dialogue. Reservoir Dogs remains one of Tarantino’s best films and one of the best films of the 90’s.
