Seven total strangers team up for the perfect crime.
They don’t know each other’s name…
But they’ve got each other’s colour.
In 1992, Quentin Tarantino‘s mind-blowlingly stylish, explosive heist-gone-awry masterpiece RESERVOIR DOGS was unleashed; in addition to cleaning up at film festivals around the world, it both launched and cemented the career of one cinema’s most influential auteurs. A classic crime story, whipsmart dialogue, memorable performances and a killer soundtrack makes RESERVOIR DOGS perfect for inclusion in the Rio Theatre‘s summer series of classics. Starring Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Steve Buscemi, Steven Wright, and Quentin Tarantino.
“No one should go to ‘Reservoir Dogs’ without prior thought. But what they will see is a riveting treatise on the theme of betrayal set in an urban wasteland that murders hope and makes redemption virtually impossible.” (The Guardian)
“A brash, brutal crime-caper film, ‘Reservoir Dogs’ has enough raw energy for 10 motion pictures and more than enough rough stuff to traumatize the sensitive. But not only does Dogs have teeth, it has brains.” (Orlando Sentinel)
“No matter how many times you’ve freeze-framed the bit at the end, it’s still up there with ‘Die Hard’ and ‘Taxi Driver’ as one of the great once-a-year indulgences.” (Total Film)
“As QT’s first film as both writer and director, ‘Reservoir Dogs’ indicates a remarkably fully formed cinematic sensibility.” (Slant Magazine)
