No, not Reservoir Dogs. It's called My Best Friend's Birthday, which he made for $5000 in 1987. Here's the surviving 36 minutes of footage; the rest was destroyed in a fire.

Some of the ideas and material in this film would be recycled for the Tarantino-penned True Romance screenplay. (via sly oyster)
