Reservoir Dogs 1992 info:-
Reservoir Dogs 1992, Reservoir Dogs transformed Quentin Tarantino practically overnight from an obscure, unproduced screenwriter and part-time actor to the most influential new filmmaker of the 1990s. The story looks at what happens before and after (but not during) a botched jewelry store robbery organized by Joe Cabot (Lawrence Tierney). Mr. White (Harvey Keitel) is a career criminal who takes a liking to newcomer Mr. Orange (Tim Roth) and enjoys showing him the ropes. Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) is a weaselly loner obsessed with professionalism.
Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) has just gotten out of jail after taking the rap on a job for Cabot; he’s grateful for the work but isn’t the same person he used to be. While Mr. Blonde goes nuts during the heist, the thieves are surprised by the sudden arrival of the police, and Mr. Pink is convinced one of their team is a cop. So who’s the rat? What do they do about Mr. Blonde? And what do they do with Mr.
Orange, who took a bullet in the gut and is slowly bleeding to death? Reservoir Dogs jumps back and forth between pre- and post-robbery events, occasionally putting the narrative on pause to let the characters discuss such topics as the relative importance of tipping, who starred in Get Christie Love!, and what to do when you enter a men’s room full of cops carrying a briefcase full of marijuana.
Reservoir Dogs 1992 Plot:-
Somewhere in Los Angeles, eight men eat breakfast at a diner before carrying out a diamond heist. Mob boss Joe Cabot and his son and underboss “Nice Guy” Eddie Cabot are responsible for planning the job. The rest of the men use aliases issued by Joe Cabot: Mr. Brown, Mr. White, Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Orange, and Mr. Pink. The crew complains about Mr. Pink not giving tip to waitresses.
The men then exit the diner in a slow-motion scene where the title card appears. After the heist, White flees with Orange, who was shot during the escape and is bleeding severely in the back of White’s car. At Joe’s warehouse, White and Orange rendezvous with Pink, who believes that the job was a setup and that the police were waiting for them. Orange passes out from blood loss.
The story then flashes to White’s story (real name Larry Dimmick) on how he got involved in the robbery. Back in the present, White informs Pink that Brown is dead, Blue and Blonde are missing, and Blonde murdered several civilians during the heist; White is furious that Joe, his old friend, would employ Blonde, whom he describes as a psychopath. Pink has hidden the diamonds nearby. He argues with White over whether or not they should get medical attention for Orange, then because White told Orange his real name and hometown.
The pair end up having a fight and draw guns at each other. They stand down when Blonde arrives drinking a soft drink with a kidnapped policeman, Marvin Nash, in the trunk of his car. The men then bring Marvin in the warehouse and beat him. The story then cuts to Blonde (real name Vic Vega) on how he got involved with the robbery. Blonde, after serving a 4-year sentence, meets with the Cabots. Please See More Information…….
Reservoir Dogs 1992 Production:-
Quentin Tarantino had been working at Video Archives, a video store in Manhattan Beach, California, and originally planned to shoot the film with his friends on a budget of $30,000 in a 16 mm black-and-white format, with producer Lawrence Bender playing a police officer chasing Mr. Pink. Bender gave the script to his acting teacher.
whose wife gave the script to Harvey Keitel. Keitel liked it enough to sign as a co-producer so Tarantino and Bender would have an easier job finding funding; with his assistance, they raised $1.5 million. Keitel also paid for Tarantino and Bender to host casting sessions in New York, where the duo found Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen, and Tim Roth.
Reservoir Dogs was, according to Tarantino, influenced by Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing. Tarantino said: “I didn’t go out of my way to do a rip-off of The Killing, but I did think of it as my ‘Killing’, my take on that kind of heist movie.” The film’s plot was suggested by the 1952 film Kansas City Confidential. Additionally, Joseph H. Lewis’s 1955 film The Big Combo and Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 Spaghetti Western Django inspired the scene where a police officer is tortured in a chair.
Tarantino has denied that he plagiarized with Reservoir Dogs and instead said that he does homages. Having the main characters named after colors (Mr. Pink, White, Brown, etc.) was first seen in the 1974 film The Taking of Pelham One Two Three. The film also contains key elements similar to those found in Ringo Lam’s 1987 film City on Fire. The warehouse used in the film was, in reality, an abandoned mortuary. This explains the hearse Blonde is sitting on while White and Pink are arguing.
