Open-air film festival 2015: Reservoir Dogs

  • Film, Drama

Time Out says

Quentin Tarantino. USA, 1992. Original language, Spanish subtitles. 99'.

Tarantino's film debut is one of the biggest in modern American film history. A wild and brutal movie, with violence that makes quite an impact, the story tells the diastrous consequences of a robbery gone wrong for the gang that perpetrated it. It's not, however, a trivial exercise, but a reflection on the very skillfully stylised violence. Several influences have been mentioned: Kubrick, Peckinpah, Scorsese, Melville, Fuller... But Tarantino has his own voice. One of the film's executive producers was Monte Hellman, which would come as no surprise to those familiar with his early work in low-budget exploitation films. (Read the Time Out review.) See Matuke and the Final Decision, full of R&B and mambo, before the film (8.45pm).
