COLOR THEM BADASS 

Perhaps no other first-time director has ever announced himself with the same swaggering, profane, bloody gusto as Quentin Tarantino did in 1992, when his Reservoir Dogs burst onto the screen like a love child of Sam Peckinpah and Martin Scorsese wet-nursed by Lee Marvin. Virtually overnight, this tale of a heist gone horribly awry galvanized Harvey Keitel's comeback and detonated the careers of Tim Roth, Steve Buscemi and Michael Madsen (the latter forever seared into our brains to the soundtrack of Stealers Wheel's "Stuck in the Middle With You"). Here's the setup: Just act like a professional and rendezvous tonight at 11, when SUA's Late Night New Classic Movie series screens Tarantino's breakout feature in Woodruff Auditorium at the Kansas Union (1301 Jayhawk Boulevard in Lawrence). Admission and popcorn are free. For more information, see suaevents.com or call 785-864-7469. And don't forget to tip your waitresses.
