Lewis 's film The Big Combo and Sergio Corbucci 's Spaghetti Western Django inspired the scene where a police officer is tortured in a chair. Pink, White, Brown, etc. In scenes with Orange in his apartment, the second floor of the mortuary was used and dressed up to look like living quarters. The location has since been demolished.
Blonde" -- has just driven from a botched jewelry store heist with a patrolman stuffed in the trunk of his car. Blonde Micheal Madsenlike his cohorts, suspects that one of their gang is an undercover lawman who tipped off the police, he warns the cop -- and by extension, the audience -- that he's not really torturing him because he wants information.
He's doing it because he loves torturing cops. He tunes the radio to an oldies station, whips out a straight razor and, gyrating lewdly to "Stuck in the Middle with You," uses the cop's face as a strop -- and that's just for starters.
The scene, like most of Reservoir Dogs, exists solely to pump your adrenaline and test your capacity for shock -- to make you feel giddy, then guilty, then giddy again.
Unlike Ice-T, first-time director Quentin Tarantino doesn't use the posturings of low art to make a sociological point. He uses them to get a hard-on by playing cops and robbers he casts himself in a small role as one of the Dogsand to pay tribute to his formative influences: Sixties revisionist westerns, crime pictures, TV cop shows, mediocre rock and roll and, of course, comic books one character compares the Dogs' hulking, bald boss to The Thing from Marvel Comics' Fantastic Four.
His much-heralded "style" is really clever imitation -- he takes chunks of Martin Scorsese, Sam Peckinpah, William Friedkin, Sergio Leone, and Samuel Fuller and blends them into fresh pulp. If this film were less cocky and self-aware, it wouldn't be so controversial; the reason so many people are so upset about it is because it's an art flick aimed at upscale audiences, rife with hilariously phony existential posing -- a film for fans of both Sartre and Schwarzenegger.
The plot unfolds non-chronologically. Tarantino shows the Dogs meeting in a diner before the heist, then rolls his opening credits over the gang's mythologizing, slo-mo walk to their vehicles. Then he dives straight into the heist's messy aftermath, intercutting flashbacks to the heist itself and all the work that went into planning it.
Orange, and so forthand warn them not to reveal personal information to one another. They issue them identical black suits, dark shades, and skinny ties -- partly to make it harder for witnesses to ID them, and partly to echo the costumes from Fifties pulp thrillers.
Most of the picture occurs in a warehouse, where assorted Dogs hide from the cops, mutter colorful variations on the f-word, heft pistols around, mutter brazenly non-PC wisecracks about "bitches" and "niggers," and accuse one another of being rats.
In other words, Reservoir Dogs isn't a story, but a tribute to the classics of macho American cinema -- a chance for a bunch of well-off actors to dude up in cool Fifties suits and play Badass White Guys.
Unlike the work of Phil Joanou State of Grace, Final Analysisanother young director who makes a living pasting together pieces of his favorite films, Tarantino's direction is never pompous; it's shot with a giddy, thuggish sense of humor that invites you to give in and cheer the Dogs' bad-boy mayhem.
Tarantino's jokey detachment reminds us that as repugnant as things get, it's only a movie. If you like this story, consider signing up for our email newsletters.Finally, the Reservoir Dogs script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Quentin Tarantino movie.
