Reservoir Dogs 2 Disc Collector's Edition - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
FROM the opening discussion on Madonna’s Like a Virgin to the iconic ear-cutting scene, Reservoir Dogs 2-Disc Collectors’ Edition, with its ensemble cast of Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Steve Buscemi and Lawrence Tierney is the quintessential Tarantino masterpiece.
It is now available for the first time to own on 2-disc collector’s edition DVD released by Lionsgate Home Entertainment on October 20, 2008.
The iconic story follows a group of gangsters, only referring to each other by the colour-coded pseudonyms, and the aftermath of their failed attempt at a jewellery heist. The survivors meet in an abandoned warehouse and the tension soon increases as they suspect one of them is a rat. Packed with some the most memorable lines in film history, Reservoir Dogs is undoubtedly one of the most influential films of all time.
Reservoir Dogs was the directorial debut, by the then unknown former video store clerk, Quentin Tarantino and is a brutally funny, supercharged introduction to his supremely distinct cinematic vision, which was later to become one of the most mimicked styles of the film world – this is the ultimate must have DVD in any film collection.
