    Quentin Tarantino's directorial debut, "Reservoir Dogs," has remained a part of my top ten films since I first saw it a few years ago, and having just finished the crime classic again, I'd like to share my views and reflections on its thrilling story. As a stunning debut from an unknown director at the time, "Reservoir Dogs" has become a staple of the massive genre of crime films.

    his films. As for my characters I think I have developed and introduced them to the audience well as from the start we know that Rich is the boss of the two and during the film we get that Mickey is essentially a silent psychopath. The inspiration for these characters was that I wanted Rich to be a mix between Mr White form Reservoir Dogs and Jules from Pulp Fiction as they are both assertive character who take charge with force in dangerous situations, trying to keep everything under…

His early plays present the west of Ireland to us as a horrible place, populated by savage people disguised as ordinary. His plays and films are most notable for their casual use of violence and strong dialogue; it is hard for one not to notice the striking…

    Representing the Western genre, which was once popular, but started to be worn-out by the 50s, The Wild Bunch was a surprising reassessment of the American Old West. Instead of portraying lonely ’knights’ who discover the wild territories while looking for adventures, the film focused on aging outlaws whose possibilities and future prospects became limited and only their honour code is left for them. The gang tries to survive at any costs throughout the story – therefore the movie contains cruel…

Writer Alan Stone recognizes this and argues that the absurdity of Tarantino’s scenes are a rollercoaster of emotions for the viewer. This allows him to better control the emotions of the audience.
