Commentary Review #6: ‘Reservoir Dogs’ (1992)

Audio Commentaries are sometimes a forgotten gem in the world of film. But how often do they get heard, and are they even worth hearing? This series of reviews will take a look at some of the best, and perhaps worst, audio commentaries on some classic films. Exploring what, if anything, they bring to the film. Any commentary review suggestions? Let us know in the comments below.

Who does this Commentary?
The Reservoir Dogs commentary is from a variety of people – director Quentin Tarantino, executive producer Monte Hellman, producer Lawrence Bender, editor Sally Menke, director of photography Andrezj Sekla and actors Tim Roth (Mr. Orange), Chris Penn (‘Nice Guy’ Eddie), Michael Madsen (Mr. Blonde) and Kirk Baltz (Marvin Nash).

Possible film spoilers are ahead!

As a directorial debut, Reservoir Dogs is a pretty damn good film. Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, who also plays a supporting role, we follow several ‘criminals’ before and after a robbery gone wrong. Each character becomes increasingly paranoid, as they attempt to work out which member of the group set them up to be caught in the act.

    Great blog post 🙂 You know what is interesting at least in my opinion? The films Tarantino references in his movies are always better than his own for some odd reason. I do not know, If you ever heard of director Alex Cox (Repo Man and Sid and Nancy), but he is far superior in my view. He is from the UK, but I believe he lives in Oregon now. Anyway, did you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year? I did 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
