No. 2: The Mexican Stand-Off – Quentin Tarantino’s Boldest Moments

Reservoir Dogs
Miramax

This big climactic moment might supply ‘Reservoir Dogs’ with its biggest bit of visual iconography (neck and neck with shots of the crew walking down the street after breakfast), and it’s not hard to understand why. The moment sums up all the film has to say about criminal moral codes and the idea of honor among thieves, and it does so while looking incredibly cool.

It’s always hard to remember just from looking at snapshots that there are actually four dudes in all, and Mr. White has to gun down two guys instead of just one. That’s loyalty. But because he’s killing his bosses, it’s also a horrible betrayal of loyalties, something Harvey Keitel’s character is soon to realize.
