I few days ago I watched Reservoir Dogs for the first time.
Reservoir Dogs is one of those movies that exists in the collective consciousness, and getting around to watching movies like that can be a strange experience and often a disappointing one. Lucky for me though, Reservoir Dogs turned out to be the perfect amount of hyped.
No wonder this is the movie that made Quentin Tarantino the force to be reckoned with, he is today. It almost watches like a dance. A beautifully choreographed ballet. The precision with which this gritty crime story is told is almost hypnotic at times.
For those of you unfamiliar, Reservoir Dogs centres around a group of anonymous criminals and a botched Diamond heist.
We see our characters both before and after the job and a little of what happens in between.
This script. I don't even know what to say. This script blows me away. I know Tarantino is one for dialogue but I was still surprised at how perfect some of these conversations were.
If you haven't gotten around to this film yet, give it a try. It's a classic for a reason.
