Mr. White, Mr. Pink, & Mr. Brown Stop By The Art Theatre Tonight

Hard to believe this groundbreaking film is one year shy of turning 20, until you consider all that’s come since it first made its impact on cinema. With a budget of just under $1.5 million, Reservoir Dogs launched one of this generation’s most lauded filmmaker careers – Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill series, and Inglorious Basterds are all award-winners, and his work supporting and collaborating with filmmakers such as Robert Rodriguez and Chan-wook Park has led to more opportunities to experience great independent cinema from visionary artists. Oft-imitated but never improved upon, Reservoir Dogs was an animal unlike anyone had ever seen: a little bit Mean Streets, a little bit John Woo, but with a brand of dialogue and a disregard for narrative chronology that felt refreshing and new, and that would ultimately land Tarantino an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his follow up, 1994′s Pulp Fiction.

At times violent, dramatic, and pitch-black hilarious, Reservoir Dogs is a must-see for lovers of cinema, and particularly, the noted source of inspiration for countless independent filmmakers who saw it as a shining example of what could be done with the right team, the right vision, and less money than one would think.

Reservoir Dogs is playing Friday January 28, 2011 11:55pm  at the Art Theatre of Long Beach 2025 E. 4th St. Long Beach, CA 90814.
