Scenes That I Love: The Opening of Reservoir Dogs


In honor of Quentin Tarantino’s birthday, today’s scene of the day is the opening coffeeshop scene from Tarnatino’s directorial debut, 1992’s Reservoir Dogs. 

While Tarantino will always be better appreciated as a director than an actor, it does seem somewhat appropriate that the very first lines in the very first Tarantino film are spoken by Tarantino himself.  There’s also something undeniably likable about Tarantino laughing at the sound of his own dialogue.

One response to “Scenes That I Love: The Opening of Reservoir Dogs

  1. I did the first ever US TV interview with Quentin at the 1992 Cannes Film Festival…he told me he didn’t want people to know who would live and who would die in the film…he told me: “On Star Trek when they go down onto a dangerous planet, it’s Kirk, Spock, Scotty and Sgt. Lebkowitz! We all know who’s not coming back!”
