WOW. What a film. First time I saw it was today. Quite an incredible experience derived from the mind of Quentin Tarantino.

Its one of those “Doesn’t matter where you’ve been or where your going, it matters what your doing.” The whole “criminal heist plan gone awry” at its roots, and should I say, at its best. A simple situation turns into a shit storm of trouble. A lot of chaos, violence, and blood.

Harvey Keitel is his usual best, but I was really impressed by Tim Roth. Playing a dying robber bleeding to death is a difficult role, and he was just perfect.

Although it is a very good film, the real kick to it is that its short, sweet, and to the point. The actual heist isn’t shown, and the dives into the characters’ pasts aren’t as deep as I expected. Could’ve been better with more buildup. But, for Quentin Tarantino’s debut, its spot on and shines like it rightfully deserves.
