Reservoir Dogs (Miramax, 1992)

Thursday, October 1 (7:30 p.m.)
Reservoir Dogs
(Miramax, 1992, R-rated*)
With his directorial debut of Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino went from being an unproduced screenwriter and part-time actor to one of the most influential filmmakers of the 1990s. In this often violent, chronologically scrambled crime drama, a botched jewelry store robbery is observed before and after the event. The ensemble cast includes Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi, Chris Penn, Lawrence Tierney, Edward Bunker and Quentin Tarantino. New York Times critic Vincent Canby called it “a small, modestly budgeted crime movie of sometimes dazzling cinematic pyrotechnics and over-the- top dramatic energy. It may also be one of the most aggressively brutal movies since Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs.” 99 min.* No one under the age of 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian.

NOTE:  Due to the possibility of inclement weather, the screenings at the Packard Campus scheduled for  Friday, October 2, and Saturday, October 3, have been cancelled.
