In 1992, Reservoir Dogs took the Cannes Film Festival by storm, and transformed overnight its young filmmaker Quentin Tarantino from an obscure, unproduced screenwriter and part-time actor, to the most exciting new filmmaker of the 1990s.  25 years later, the film remains as influential as ever in the art house world.

The story examines what happens before and after a botched jewelry store robbery, and how a group of “professional” criminals handle the pressure. Tarantino’s revolutionary story structure sets up what is essentially a stage play for his explosive cast to act out with bravado and short-temperament. How did the cops know they were coming? Who made it out alive? Tarantino sets up the mystery, and pays it off with the expertise of a filmmaker many years ahead of his time – famously delivering one of the greatest heist films, in which the heist itself is never shown. It’s his most raw and revolutionary work to date.

Starring Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi, Chris Penn, Joe Cabot, and Lawrence Tierney, Reservoir Dogs re-defined the crime drama and the independent film all at once.  So…are you gonna bark all day, little doggie – or are you gonna bite?

Experience Park Circus’ new 4K Restoration, produced specifically for the film’s 25th Anniversary, March 17 through 23 at The Frida!

“In 1992 Quentin Tarantino did something that hadn’t been done since 1986 with David Lynch’s Blue Velvet; he reinvented cinema.” – Cole Smithey
“A highly cinematic blast for those who can stomach its brutality…Like Glengarry Glen Ross with guns.” – FulvueDriveIn.com

“Tarantino’s debut is a wildly entertaining, thrilling, upsetting and hilarious movie, shot and performed with verve, go-for-broke energy and gritty charisma.” – Netflix
