Dennis Vehlen’s review published on Letterboxd:
It's hard to describe the impact 'Reservoir Dogs' had on me when I first saw it. I probably watched the video tape three times that weekend and in the next years it became totally imprinted on my brain, one of my most-watched movies ever and my favorite Tarantino film (along with 'Kill Bill Vol. 2') for the longest time (it's still in the Top 3). I hadn't seen it in five years or so now, and watching it again was a treat.
This is still easily one of the most impressive debut films ever made and one of my favorite films from the 90s, as well as one of the greatest heist movies (especially because you never see the heist).
It's that special mix of raw passionate energy and the strangely sure hand of an artist starving for his chance to make a first impression at the thing he loves the most. You can't help getting caught in QT's cinematic bonfire of gangsters both shooting the shit and violently shooting each other.
