Standoff (Reservoir Dogs)
Side elevation of a scene in Reservoir Dogs where Mr. White and Mr. Pink are having a standoff

Towards the end of the 199 film Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino’s directorial debut, there is a Mexican standoff. The scene occurs after a planned diamond heist has spectacularly failed. The criminal gang return to a warehouse where they launch accusations and insults at each other. The scene climaxes with characters all pointing guns at one another, waiting for someone to take the first shot. Most people die, except Mr. Pink, who hides from the bullets and later escapes (with the diamonds). The scene highlights the shallow performance of masculinity.

Mr. White, portrayed by Harvey Keitel, is 5 foot 7 inches (1.70 m) tall. Mr. Pink, played by Steve Buscemi, is 5 foot 9 inches (1.75 m) tall.
