Essay  Introduction    
This  essay  is  an  analysis  of  the  relationship  between  story   and  structure  in  the  cult  film  ‘Reservoir  Dogs’,  Directed  by   Quentin  Tarantino.  Specifically  this  essay  will  look  at  the   stylistic  and  unorthodox  approach  to  directing  and  editing   within  the  film.  Key  sources  will  be  extracted    from  “In  the   Blink  of  an  Eye:  A  Perspective  on  Film  Editing  by  Walter   Murch”  (2001),  The  Technique  of  Film  and  Video  Editing:   History,  Theory  and  Practice  by  Ken  Dancyger”  (2010),  “Film   Directing  Shot  by  Shot:  Visualizing  from  Concept  to  Screen  by   Steven  D  Katz”  (1991),  “Reservoir  Dogs-­‐  An  Introduction  by   Quentin  Tarantino  (Interview)”  and  “Quentin  Tarantino:   Interviews  (Conversations  with  Filmmakers  Series)  by  Gerald   Peary”  (1998).  This  assignment  will  begin  by  analysing  the   narrative  of  the  film  in  relation  to  camera  shots  and  the   manner  in  which  the  film  is  edited.  This  will  be  followed  by   looking  at  character  design  and  Tarantino’s  minimalistic   approach  to  set  design.  Finally  the  essay  will  study  the   underlying  themes  and  social  relevance  of  Reservoir  Dogs   along  with  its  impact  on  mainstream  filmmaking.
