My overall impression

This show is a beast. Its not just a great tip of the hat to its predecessors, it also just fits in right with them. The dvd of Zip Ties would be right between my blu rays of Reservoir Dogs and True Romance. The script is fast paced, but allows the characters to linger at moments. It also has the wit that you’d hope from a one room play, but also has the pop culture corrector in all of us screaming throughout which breaks up the seriousness. And baby, does this thing get serious. And then funny. And then serious. The tone and overall stage picture of this play were the most impressive aspects. From the first image to the last, Zip Ties wants you to think its a Tarantino homage, but the real secret is its entirely its own thing and doesn’t have to rest of the laurels of those other projects for it to kick your ass. See. It. Now.
