‘Reservoir Dogs’ stars gather for 25th anniversary

Post date:



It’s been 25 years since “Reservoir Dogs” hit screens nationwide, and no one has heard “Stuck in the Middle” the same way since.

Quentin Tarantino’s bloody masterpiece was screened for a Tribeca Film Festival audience at the Beacon Theatre on Friday, where the director was reunited actors Harvey Keitel, Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen — and this time, everybody walked out alive.

Madsen talked to us about the movie’s most memorable scene, where he danced around while cutting off a man’s ear.

“I’m not a good dancer and whatever I did I was trying to make something up,” he said. “I saw James Cagney sort of do something like that and it clicked in my mind right before I had to do the scene, and that’s where it came from. I stole that from Cagney.”

Keitel was easily the biggest star going into the film, but even now, he says it’s the role for which many people remember him.

“People still know the characters names,” he said. “They call out, ‘Hey Mister White!’”

Keitel knew the film was a hit.

“I’m not surprised we’re here on the 25th anniversary,” he said.

Buscemi, who played “Mr. Pink” in the movie, just wanted to help the upstart director.

“I wanted to just do my very, very best and help out Quentin because it was his first time as a director and I was working with really, really good actors,” he said. “I was nervous because I was working with Harvey Keitel and he was very good to all of us.”

Tarantino didn’t leave much room for a sequel with “Reservoir Dogs,” which he shot on a $1.2 million budget. But he has since filmed instant classics including “Pulp Fiction,” “Kill Bill,” “Django Unchained” and “The Hateful Eight” on his way to becoming one of the most influential directors in modern cinema.
