See this film: Reservoir Dogs @ the Coolidge

For better or worse, Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs (1992) shaped American independent filmmaking for years. The esoteric film references, the narrative acrobatics, the outrageously brilliant dialogue, and the perversely inventive violence - it's a style and sensibility that many have tried but few have succeeded in duplicating. (After awhile, even Tarantino couldn't match it, though his recent efforts have gotten better and we hear good things about his latest film, Django Unchained.) The premise is simple: in the aftermath of a botched heist, gang members bleed, play with razors, and try to figure out who squealed. The ditty "Stuck in the Middle With You" will never be the same. It screens at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | Monday, August 27 @ 7 pm | $9; $6 seniors | 617.734.2501 or
