Reservoir Dogs

Year: 1992
Director: Quentin Tarantino

Summary: Six unacquainted professional criminals are brought together by a veteran thief to execute an intricately planned diamond robbery.

Times Watched: 1

My Experience: Tarantino’s first movie is exceptional in its use of subtlety, symbolism, purposeful dialogue, and brutally honest character motivation. Almost the entire movie takes place in a warehouse where they all agree to meet after the heist (that goes terribly wrong). Despite being low on action, the movie is engaging and I was racking my brain the whole time to figure out who the informant was. What a debut.

  1. Wracking, you mean.

    I’ve seen this movie many times and I dig it just as much each time. It was ruined for me before I watched it the first time, though, so I never did get to see it without the benefit of hindsight.
