““Listen kid, I’m not gonna bullshit you, all right? I don’t give a good fuck what you know, or don’t know, but I’m gonna torture you anyway, regardless. Not to get information. It’s amusing, to me, to torture a cop. You can say anything you want cause I’ve heard it all before. All you can do is pray for a quick death, which you ain’t gonna get.””
“Reservoir Dogs” has become a classic of independent film making and a cult classic being named “Greatest Independent Film of all Time” by highly respected film magazine, Empire. This original US One Sheet movie poster from the first year of release 1992 has unique Country of origin (USA) artwork, designed and created by John Sabel and is extremely sought after by collectors of the genre and Tarantino’s large and loyal fanbase. Originally rolled (as issued) this superb example displays and presents to excellent effect and benefits from being conservation linen backed. In the early 90’s Tarantino certainly never had the kudos he has today and country of origin paper is particularly scarce as it initially had a very limited cinematic release and almost non-existent marketing budget. This quickly changed as the movie became such a commercial and critical success, meaning more money was provided for global advertising budgets where posters are more readily available. These first USA one sheets are rare and this item represents a truly high grade item of original collectible original film poster memorabilia.
Trivia: In the commentary track on the True Romance DVD, Quentin Tarantino says that Tony Scott read both the “True Romance” and “Reservoir Dogs” scripts, and told Tarantino he wanted to direct “Reservoir Dogs”. Tarantino told him he could have “True Romance”, but that he himself was going to direct “Reservoir Dogs”.…more detail
