Quentin Tarantino burst onto the scene in 1992 with this unorthodox heist-gone-wrong crime caper, impressive for its evocation of violence (little is shown, much implied) and digressive but riveting dialogue. A post-modern riff on films like 1956 film noir THE KILLING, the fractured chronology leaps from the planning stages all the way to the aftermath of the bungled job, the details of the crime secondary to the banter among the thieves, their camaraderie giving way to poisonous paranoia once they suspect a rat in their number. With Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi, Lawrence Tierney and Chris Penn, plus Tarantino in a cameo. DIR/SCR Quentin Tarantino; PROD Lawrence Bender. U.S., 1992, color, 99 min. RATED R
