On October 22nd, 1992, a geeky video store employee’s debut film opened in a few theaters to critical acclaim. A small event at the time, but the effects of Quentin Tarantino‘s Reservoir Dogs — and, trust me, I usually hate speaking in these sorts of terms — may have forever changed cinema. I know a few people’s lives would be quite different if it never got made.
As was recently done in conjunction with Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Miramax have been kind enough to supply us with eleven behind-the-scenes shots from the set of Reservoir Dogs, all of which serve as a fascinating glimpse at the making of a classic. (You can even gawk at how young Tarantino looks when he’s directing Harvey Keitel.) At this point, yours truly just sort of figured he’d seen everything Reservoir Dogs could possibly offer — but it was nice to be wrong.

Reservoir Dogs will be given a re-release December 4th, while Tarantino will make his true return when Django Unchained opens on December 25th.
Even as someone who’s surely seen the film, are you fascinated by these shots of Dogs‘ production?
