U.S., 1992, 99 min, 35mm, Dir. Quentin Tarantino, Rated R, Park Circus
“Tarantino's palpable enthusiasm, his unapologetic passion for what he's created, reinvigorates this venerable plot and, mayhem aside, makes it involving for longer than you might suspect.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
25 years ago, Quentin Tarantino unleashed a world of trunk shots, non-linear narrative, hyper violence, and profuse profanity on unsuspecting audiences with Reservoir Dogs. Now, a brand new 35mm print that premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival – where the film had its original premiere – is traveling the country and making a pit stop in Miami. Six men, perfect strangers to one another, carry out a diamond heist that goes awry and explodes into a bloody ambush. When the remaining crooks assemble at the arranged rendezvous point, they begin to suspect one of them is an undercover cop. But which one? Reservoir Dogs was a milestone of independent filmmaking, proving that high-quality films could be made outside the established Hollywood studio system. These screenings will be preceded by a recorded Q&A featuring Tarantino himself, his long-time producer Lawrence Bender, and actor Michael Madsen.
