This is the only Tarantino movie I'll watch and it was excellent. Had he limited his formula utilizing gratuitous violence in all his films to this one or only a few, I'd think much more of him as a director. Both screenplay and acting in Reservoir Dogs are razor-sharp as well. His other films are so over-the-top with blood and guts, they're cartoonish.
On a side note, if you watch this clip or the widescreen version of the film, starting at 2:14, you'll see a poster on the wall behind Lawrence Tierney (RIP, great actor, but typecast playing toughs and Irish gangsters) and Harvey Keitel. It's advertising a parish festival for St. Louise de Marillac, a parish that was one town over from me when I was a pup. I hope the pastor never got wind that the parish fair was featured in the film. Otherwise, he would've had a conniption!
Yeh, great movie alright mate. The second NG movie is my favourite actually. Some memorable scenes in that - off the top of my head, the sleeve of Nordberg's boiler suit getting caught whilst he's attempting to conceal a tracking device in the chassis of a van....
Then there was this:
"The man is as dirty as a coal miner's underwear in January."
