"Quentin Tarantino's films have single-handedly revived and redefined American cinema, bringing to Hollywood a new energy, irony, and cool. With their fearless humor, pop-culture sensibility, and edgy explorations into the violence of our culture, Tarantino's films have garnered him a devoted following among critics, actors, and audiences and paved the way for a new generation of young filmmakers. Tarantino's directorial debut, Reservoir Dogs, the story of a heist gone wrong, hit the screen with a freshness and brutal edge that left critics and audiences stunned. The film weaves a taut and menacing path, laced with bursts of absurd and unexpected humor, as an eccentric cast of urban outlaws attempts to identify the rat in their midst. The film established the groundbreaking aesthetic - smartass, hard-edged, and ultraviolent - that made Tarantino one of the most sought-after directors in the nation and established him as the decade's freshest new talent."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
