Independent cinema has been around as long as cinema itself has, but in the 1990's it burst into neighborhood movie houses and was given as much credit by average filmgoer's as the standard Hollywood fare. Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs, his first film, arguably started it all.
Although Tarantino didn't make himself a househould name until two years later with Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs is the film with which he cut his teeth on the humorous and naturalistic dialogue he's known for today, as well as his style of non-linear storytelling. It is now widely available on DVD and Blu-Ray and, as of this writing, is streaming on Netflix.
