Reservoir Dogs is pure 90's Tarantino... which should speak for itself.
Quentin Tarantino is widely regarded as one of the greatest directors of all time (even though his portfolio only contains eight films). His movies have gained an almost religious cult-like following, and his newer works never fail to surprise even the most hardcore fans. That being said, Tarantino's success is partially due to his knack for extreme, almost satirical violence. Reservoir Dogs was his first film to debut on the silver screen internationally and is infamous for its hilarious, pop-culture jammed screenplay, non-linear narrative, and its brutal, brutal, brutal shootouts. To put this film's violence into proper context, it is said that actor Tim Roth (whose character Mr. Orange plays a pivotal role in the story) had to be peeled off the floor of the set due to the amount of stage blood he was lying in. And don't forget about the controversial torture scene, set to the sound of Stealers Wheel "Stuck in the Middle With You." But if you're looking for Tarantino, Reservoir Dogs is the best place to begin. 15+.
