Stories for October 16, 1992
Some directors make such startling first films that they cannot help attracting attention. Martin Scorsese's Who's That Knocking?, Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It, Peter Greenaway's The Draftsman's Contract, and Alan Rudolph's Welcome to L.A. are all audacious debut films. Now Quentin Tarantino, still in his twenties, makes his directing debut with a violent and blackly comic homage to B movie gangsters, Reservoir Dogs. His bold assured direction signals Tarantino as a talent to watch.
