We Used to Play This Game ...

... my country cousins and I, when I was 10 or 12, in the summer when there was nothing to do and we had no sports equipment or playing fields in the 1950s, just backyards without fences and scrappy vacant fields, and we could have listened to Sky King on the radio or some of us could have watched daytime TV but the last thing we wanted to do was sit at home where our mothers could harp at us, so we'd go play 'gangsters' across the whole neighborhood though sometimes we'd still play World War 2 but there wasn't much difference, we'd squabble over who called the script until we reached some kind of concord that I'd go first and Olle would take over after a half hour and then Peter. We didn't call the game 'Reservoir Dogs' because we'd never heard of such and the movie was still decades away, but it was just the same game as these actors -- Keitel and Roth and Buscemi and Tarantino himself -- play on screen, with the same boyish glee at flinging the big F every third word and the same appreciation for chaos and betrayal. It was all about "pecking order" of course, and the power of a good bluff, and we knew it was deadly serious, that our futures depended on it, but the knowledge was unconscious. Usually, by the rules of group improv, we'd all wind up dead, and then the older ones of us would start bragging about peeking at each other's sisters in the bathroom...

Tarantino and his Hollywood home boys were probably already too old for this kind of circle jerk when they made it in 1981...
