About the Movie

Films become cult hits for various reasons. Cinematography, Storyline, Music. Some because they manage to resonate with the people (Meangirls). Others become cult hits for one very important reason. Style.

One such film is Quentin Tarantino’s very first feature film, Reservoir Dogs.

Tarantino’s independent film detailing the before and aftermath of a jewel heist gone wrong cemented Tarantino as one of the worlds most graphic directors with viewers attending screenings walking out of the film for its hyper-realistic portrayal of violence. It also introduced the world to Mr.White, Mr.Brown, Mr.Orange, Mr.Pink, Mr.Blue and Mr.Blonde and some pretty memorable eyewear.

The film is certainly one of the best markers of the resurgence of the Ray-Ban brand with each of the main characters wearing a pair of the legendary sunglasses in the opening sequence.  For the film Mr Blonde, Mr White and Mr Pink were given a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses to complete their black and white ensemble, whilst Mr. Brown was given a pair of the Ray-Ban Predator sunglasses. Mr.Orange wears a pair of Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses.

Tarantino has been quoted as saying that the only brands he’ll reference on camera are Ray-Ban and Zippo. Reservoir dogs really does heavily rely on the cool factor of the Ray-Ban Sunglasses to add that extra bit of power to the action on screen.

I wear overly large Dior sunglasses to keep my eyes (and even more importantly the fragile skin around my eyes) safe from the sun’s evil rays. Yes, summer is fun and the warmth is glorious, but I have a serious bone to pick with our life-giving star for bringing with all its goodness a whole lot of radiation and cancer-causing rays. So, instead of being more tan and, by connection, sexier, I’m stuck looking like a vampire but happily a cancer free one.
