It's the only great Tarantino film, and the only one that has aged well. Even Pulp Fiction, in just 10 years, has lost much of its luster. "Dogs" remains tense, stylish and darkly funny. I think it benefits greatly from being the film made before he was officially "Quentin Tarantino" so it lacks the self-consciousness of his subsequent work. QT has always gotten great performances out of his casts even in his lesser films, but the acting here is wonderful from top to bottom. I appreciate a different performance each time - now I think I might like Lawrence Tierney's best of the bunch.
