* EstablishingCharacterMoment: We learn everything we need to know about the main four gangsters in the opening diner scene. Mr. Pink refuses to tip the waitress, showing that he's self-centered and has little sympathy for others. Mr. White gets angry at him and passionately explains why waitresses need tips, showing that he's good-natured and sympathetic. Mr. Blonde jokingly offers to shoot Mr. White for not returning joe his notebook, showing that he's a violent psychopath. Also, notice that when Joe asks the crew which one of them didn't tip, [[spoiler:Mr. Orange immediately rats Mr. Pink out -- foreshadowing the revelation that he's the rat]].

* AmbiguousEnding: [[spoiler: Did Mr. White kill Mr. Orange or commit SuicideByCop? Though signs point more to the former, the film notably makes sure that Orange and Mr. White's hand are offscreen when White fires his final shot so it could go both ways.]]

* VillainProtagonist: Pretty much everybody, as the main characters display BlackAndGrayMorality at best. Although [[spoiler:White is a NobleDemon and Orange is arguably good. Well, except for shooting the civilian woman during the carjacking in retaliation to being shot himself, though he did show remorse for the deed.]] In fairness, [[spoiler: Orange shooting the woman appeared to just be the instinctive reaction to getting shot while you're pointing a gun at someone]]

''Reservoir Dogs'' is Creator/QuentinTarantino's 1992 debut as a director and a screenwriter. The film largely takes place in the aftermath of a [[PlethoraOfMistakes jewelry heist gone wrong]]. After the robbery is interrupted by the police, the surviving criminals -- all of whom are [[NoNameGiven using color-based pseudonyms]], and none of whom knew the others before this job -- escape to an abandoned warehouse and try to work out what went wrong, eventually deciding that there must be [[TheMole an undercover cop]] in their midst.

** Mr. Blonde's torture of Officer Nash to music vaguely recalls Angel Eyes' torture of Tuco in ''TheGoodTheBadandtheUgly'', only ''much'' gorier.

--> 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.
