Is Resevoir Dogs a heist film or a film that surrounds the heist?  Can it really count as a heist film if it never shows it?

It's been a long time since I saw the film, but don't they flash back to part of the robbery during the film?

I don't think you see anything happen during the heist from what I recall, you do see the scene of Mr Pink running from the cops just after the heist.  I recently pulled this out and put it in a pile of films to rewatch since it has been quite a long time.

I am sooooooo tempted: 48-Hour Marvel marathon and it is only $AUS65 ($US47) for the whole lot. It is a question of how to plan your sleep film. I have done multiple 24-hour marathons and you do not need to sleep, but 48, not going to make it.

Has Daniel Day Lewis ever played a likeable character?

That's a good call too. A bit of a know-it-all, but a likable one.

It feels like Black Panther came out three years ago. 2018, man...
