Like K-Billy’s Super Sounds of the Seventies Weekend, over here at Red Hook Flicks we just keep on trucking . . . Next in our line-up is Quentin Tarantino’s first and one of his best films–RESERVOIR DOGS. Starring Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth, Chris Penn, Laurence Tierney, the voice of comedian Steven Wright, and Tarrantino himself, the darkly comic heist-gone-awry picture caused an uproar when it first premiered at Sundance and set the template for Tarrantino’s signature style of rapid-fire, pop-culture infused banter, gleeful profanity, heightened violence, and narrative gymnastics. Itself an homage to Tarrantino’s favorite films, RESERVOIR DOGS helped set off the golden age of independent filmmaking that was the nineties and its imitators are legion.
RESERVOIR DOGS is brought to you by WATERFRONT KITCHENS and PIZZA MOTO, who is motoring over to the park with their hand-made mobile wood-fired oven on Tuesday. They’ll be serving margherita, pepperoni, and mushroom pizzas ($3/slice); San Pelligrino limonata and aranciata ($2.00); and they’ll even make vegan pies on request! KingLeche Cremes will be back with their goats milk ice cream bars. And Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will stay open late as usual for us.
See you at the pier!
