Like Tarantino’s mainstream breakthrough Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs has an unconventional structure, cleverly shuffling back and forth in time to reveal details about the characters, experienced criminals who know next to nothing about each other. Joe (Lawrence Tierney) has assembled them to pull off a simple heist, and has gruffly assigned them color-coded aliases (Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, Mr. White) to conceal their identities from being known even to each other. But something has gone wrong, and the plan has blown up in their faces. One by one, the surviving robbers find their way back to their prearranged warehouse hideout. There, they try to piece together the chronology of this bloody fiasco–and to identify the traitor among them who tipped off the police. Pressure mounts, blood flows, accusations and bullets fly. In the combustible atmosphere these men are forced to confront life-and-death questions of trust, loyalty, professionalism, deception, and betrayal. —EverythingTarantino.com

Considerado pela revista Empire “o maior filme independente de todos os tempos”, CÃES DE ALUGUEL não ganhou esse status a toa. Realizado com poucos recursos, mas excesso de esmero, o filme que impulsionou a carreira de Tarantino reflete com propriedade os atributos caros a seu autor: narrativa não-linear, diálogos afiados, trilha envolvente, estética visual apurada e trabalho preciso na direção de atores | Celo Silva
Un regista trentenne si presenta con una scena mozzafiato che da sola vale tutto il film. Tecnicamente fantastico. Dialoghi al limite dell'umana comprensione. Regia che mette in evidenza un talento inverosimile. Una stella si accende nel firmamento di Hollywood.......non si spegnerà più nei successivi 20 anni.
Also: Jason Reitman stages a reading of Reservoir Dogs with an all-black cast.
