Reservoir Dogs 25th Anniversary at The Beacon Theatre (Tribeca 2017)
One of the special events that took place at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival was the 25th Anniversary screening of RESERVOIR DOGS in glorious 35 mm at The Beacon Theatre. Quentin Tarantino's super cool movie about potty-mouthed gangsters and a jewel heist gone bad first screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 1992. It was screened there again this year to celebrate the world's first introduction to movies by Tarantino and last week Tribeca Film Festival gathered the rowdy masses to commemorate RESERVOIR DOGS along with a post screening discussion featuring Quentin Tarantino, Tim Roth, Steve Buscemi, Harvey Keitel and Michael Madsen. Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, Mr. White and Mr. Blonde all sat with Lynn Hirschberg of the New York Times for an interesting conversation that revealed a lot of fun facts including Tarantino admitting that Tom Waits read for the part of Mr. Brown. If there's footage of Tom Waits doing the Madonna speech, let's see it! Another fact revealed by Tarantino is that Wes Craven walked out of a festival movie screening. The director of NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET may have found the torture scene with Mr. Blonde carving off a cop's ear a bit too much. It was also fun to hear the origin of Mr. Blonde's dance which Madsen admits came from watching a James Cagney movie. Check it all out below...we've got some photos by Chocko from the Loge section and the audio from the post screening conversation.
