Cinema giant Quentin Tarantino’s debut film about a heist gone wrong still feels as fresh and invigorating as it did when it premiered 25 years ago. A crew of bandits on the run from police gather in a warehouse in Los Angeles and attempt to suss out which of them is actually an undercover cop. The tense action and expertly-crafted dialogue is delivered masterfully by one of the greatest casts of actors ever assembled, including Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen, and Tarantino himself. Not for the faint of heart, the film’s gloriously bloody sequences (which reportedly caused even Wes Craven to duck out when the film was on the festival circuit in 1992) provided not only the blueprint for Tarantino’s future films, but also served to inspire a generation of filmmakers. Whether you listen to “Super Sounds of the Seventies” regularly or are new to this influential crime drama, don’t miss a chance to experience this explosive and groundbreaking thriller on the big screen.
