Historical Circuit: Top 35 Dance Sequences in Film, Vol. 2

24. “Stuck in the Middle With You” – Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Quentin Tarantino picks appropriate songs, doesn’t he? In a film that already has a dissertation on Madonna’s “Like a Virgin,” this 1992 film is probably one of the best dance-inspired murders out there. To the tune of Stealer’s Wheel’s “Stuck in the Middle With You,” the sadistic Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) shows the glee with which he’s going to torture the cop he’s kidnapped by singing along and dancing like he’s at his house, just throwing a switchblade around.
