Reservoir Dogs (1992) - Opening Scene
Reservoir Dogs is an American crime film that focuses on a group of men prior to and after a botched diamond heist, the cast are made up of household names including the acting, writing and directing debut of Quentin Tarantino.
Like in most of Tarantino's movies, there is violence embedded in the script and he tries his upmost to emphasise the importance of every character.
this is apparent in the opening sequence while they are sitting around a table and the
camera pans around the table to show all the characters but shoots in an 'over the shoulder'
format in order to retain the mystery surrounding each character.
i think this is an interesting scene to anylyse as it emphasises subtle eotions very well in all male enviroment where emotions are not deamed to relevant.
