Nick Potter's rating of the film Reservoir Dogs

Quentin Tarantino's debut feature film announced his name to the world in triumphant fashion. His characters thrive in this one room story, where their dialogue and untrustworthiness and flourish. Keitel, Roth, and Buscemi are terrific, and Madsen's "Stuck In The Middle With You" scene is now iconic. Reservoir Dogs may have been trumped by Pulp Fiction, but it is still my favorite Tarantino film by far.
