Reservoir Dogs (1992)
You don't need proof when you have instinct.
So basically: Joe Cabot hires six strangers to carry out a bank robbery. He gives them each their own name: Mr Blonde, Mr White, Mr Pink, Mr Blue, Mr Brown, and Mr Orange. When Mr Blonde starts shooting during the heist, things get a little hectic as everyone tries to make it out alive and to the safe-house.
This is the film that made me love Tarantino. I think the only other one I saw before this was Pulp Fiction - which I can barely remember, I was so distracted while watching it, oops! After this film I instantly wanted to watch all of his other movies! It's just so awesome. All of the characters are amazing and it was brilliantly cast - TIM ROTH IS SO YOUNG! The story is kind of simple if you think about it, but the whole thing is put together so brilliantly - gotta love Tarantino for that - that you hardly notice how generic it is.
This movie totes deserves to be on the list.
Ziggi seal of approval!
