1. The acting is terrific. Roth, Keitel, Tierney, Madsen. Madsen was amazing the first few times I saw it.

2. The dialogue is amazing.

3. The pacing and scene placement is impressive. Good flashbacks without being overly cutesy or clever.

4. They seemed like real criminals and cops, not supercops like Jackie Chan and Mel Gibson, not brilliant thieves either.

I happened to see it at the Miami Arts Festival before it was released in theatres, and still remember walking out of there going, Wow, this is going to be huge, either cult favorite or regular. A total 4-star film. Certainly no one had heard of Quentin before this hit the festival circuit.
