5 Things We Learned at the ‘Reservoir Dogs’ Tribeca Film Festival Reunion
The Reservoir Dogs had their day at the Tribeca Film Festival‘s 25th anniversary screening of Quentin Tarantino‘s blistering 1992 debut feature. All the surviving members of Joe Cabot’s doomed crew of diamond thieves — Mr. White (Harvey Keitel), Mr. Orange (Tim Roth), Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi), Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), and Mr. Brown (Tarantino) — reunited on the stage of New York’s famed Beacon Theater. (Cabot himself, sadly, wasn’t in attendance as his alter ego, veteran character actor Lawrence Tierney, passed away in 2002. Other fallen Dogs include Edward Bunker and Chris Penn, who died in 2005 and 2006, respectively.) With the ever-loquacious Tarantino holding court, the cast and their director reminisced about a movie that’s been a pop culture mainstay for two decades and counting. Here are five things we learned about Reservoir Dogs straight from the mouths of the men who made it.
