The film has become regarded as a classic of independent film and a cult film. Reservoir Dogs was generally well received, and the cast was praised by many critics. The film was more successful in the United Kingdom, grossing nearly £6.5 million, and it achieved higher popularity after the success of Tarantino's next film, Pulp Fiction (1994). A soundtrack was released featuring songs used in the film, which are mostly from the 1970s.
