Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia18

Directed by Sam Peckinpah | Mexico/USA | 1974 | 1h 52m | Starring Warren Oates, Isela Vega, Robert Webber, Gig Young, Kris Kristofferson

A piano player in a Mexican bar gets himself involved in the manhunt for Alfredo Garcia, a man with a million-dollar price-tag on his head. Sensing a easy payday, learning that the target may already be dead, he sets off with his girlfriend on a tequila-fueled trek across the Mexican frontier to retrieve the head of Alfredo Garcia. During a career that was blighted by studio interference, director Sam Peckinpah would go on to say that this fatalistic neo-Western was the only film that ended up exactly as he wanted – a brutal and stark portrayal of desperation.

Reviews

‘The movie is some kind of bizarre masterpiece. It’s probably not a movie that most people would like, but violence, with Peckinpah, sometimes becomes a psychic ballet.’
★★★★
Roger Ebert
