First movie by Quentin Tarantino! Like a blueprint for everything he would do after this...

It is big day for Mickey - his Birthday and his girlfriend just left him. His friend Clarence shows him a birthday Mickey will never forget. We will never see this movie in full. The final reel of this movie was destroyed in a lab fire that broke out during editing and the only surviving parts were edited together to make this 34 minutes short movie. Still you never get the feeling that you're ever really missing any sequences while watching this movie.

I find it funny that people are saying this is "trash". This was done on a budget of what, less than nothing. Reservoir Dogs was done on like nothing. I'd like to see you write, direct and star in your own film as good as this. You do realise this wasn't just the first film he made, it was the first film he wrote. This is the screenplay for True Romance for any of you that didn't know. So i'd like to see you write, direct and star in a film this good and then have it go on to be a major motion picture, and oh yeah go on to be one of the biggest people in Hollywood today.

it's not bad for a first film, especially when you add in the fact that Tarantino taught him self without any College plus back then there was no internet
