After watching ‘Reservoir Dogs’, a 1992 American neo-noir crime film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino about a group of diamond thieves whose heist goes wrong, I couldn’t help but notice the absence of significant female characters.
Tarantino said of this decision, "There were no female characters in Reservoir Dogs because the movie took place over the course of an hour in this warehouse after this robbery. These guys aren't going to bring their girlfriends to the robbery. Joe didn't happen to hire any women."
There are also some interesting reading about QT, women and violence: 1. Quentin Tarantino’s take on women and violence. 2. Recasting Reservoir Dogs With An All-Female Cast. 3. The Reservoir Dogs Feminist Analysis. There are weak or strong women in his movies, good and bad women too, and I've heard people taking sides about QT, saying he's (or isn't) sexist. One has to make its own mind about that though...
