Trivia

The first draft was written without an outline. Roger Avary says he just let his emotions run wild, without regard to plot or structure. While the script was rewritten several times, it retained the quasi-autobiographical nature of the initial draft. See more »

Goofs

As they enter the jazz club on the night before the heist, a Dixieland band is heard and seen playing, but the drummer is obviously not touching the drums with the drum sticks. See more »

Viva La Difference. Meet The Real Reservoir Dogs !!!
19 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is a movie that you just happen upon one day without knowing what it is about but figure the name allows at least 10 minutes just for curiosity. Than it hooks you! Imagine Eric Stolz an American in Paris so to speak A reunion is to take place with his old friend. Sounds sweet? Well their friendship is anything but normal as the two lead men are.They embark on a nonstop wild trip to pull off a heist and lets say that this is one very bad acid trip of a gig. Stolz is initiated to who his crew will be and if he survives the night before the job, the rest lets say is a piece of quiche. This gritty almost can smell the stench in the air French great independent film is very much worth watching for there is never a moment of calm. Does Zoe get killed ? Who is Zoe? I thought Jean-Hugues Anglade was absolutely captivating as the totally violent drug crazed Eric. This is an actor that just really should get more work. He monopolizes every scene. I thought it was one of the coolest films and I just fell upon it. I have watched it several times since. It's definitively one to look into. It holds up against alot big budget action films with a dirty thrilling heart pounding rhythm mixed with excellent writing and cast.
