Reservoir Dogs

Former video store clerk Quentin Tarantino's directorial debut. A mob boss hires six strangers to pull off a jewelry store heist. They are knicknamed to hide their identities: Mr White (Harvey Keitel), Mr Orange (Tim Roth), Mr Blonde (Michael Madsen), Mr Pink (Steve Buscemi), Mr Brown (Tarantino) and Mr Blue (Edward Bunker).

The plan backfires and Mr Brown is shot. The survivors gather back at their rendezvous warehouse and realise one of them must be a policement informant, who gave the game away. But who?

This movie isn't really about anything. It's just a flashy, stylistically daring exercise in cinematic mayhem.

Reservoir Dogs is funny, thrilling, and so unabashedly violent it both shocks you and leaves you giddy at your own capacity for shock.

Both blood-soaked and, in its formal symmetry, darkly funny.

I can't remember a movie getting me so excited about what you could do with a little bit of money, some fine actors, and lots of beautifully profane rhythmic dialogue.

It's brutal, it's funny and you won't forget it.

Grabs the viewer by the lapels and shakes hard, but it also is about nothing other than a bunch of macho guys and how big their guns are.

Modestly budgeted crime movie of sometimes dazzling cinematic pyrotechnics and over-the- top dramatic energy.

The movie feels like it's going to be terrific, but Tarantino's script doesn't have much curiosity about these guys.

Those who survive it emerge in a shell-shocked euphoria -- so good and so blunt is the writing.

Remarkable macho crime caper that is at once violent, sickeningly funny and utterly compelling.

Tarantino exploits audience savvy, preferring to build anticipation, mesmerise, and then cut away at the climax.
