Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974)

2 years, 1 month ago at Mar 6 14:48
With this film, Peckinpah returned to the type of violence that made a name Peckinpah economically profitable for the Majors. Maintains all the lyrical power present in the work of Peckinpah and nihilism that often accompanies its protagonists. But "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia" is also the most romantic movie of how many did the Californian and the resulting mixture of the best films of th... read more

"July 30 "Listen. The church cuts off the feet, fingers, any other goddamn thing from the saints, don't they? Well, what the hell? Alfredo's our saint. He's the saint of our money, and I'm gonna borrow a piece of him." This was an interesting and well-written movie, but like all the Sam Peckinpah movies I've seen, it never crossed the line of greatness. (Might change when I see The Wild Bunch.) It is a good movie, but not even close to being a masterpiece."

"10.06. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Sam Peckinpah Meh, I thought this was kinda dull actually. The nihilism was more shockingly and creatively executed in the two Peckinpah films I'd seen before (The Wild Bunch and Straw Dogs). Or maybe his "everybody dies" shtick has just grown old for me by now, I don't know. Anyway, Warren Oates is a pretty entertaining actor to watch and there are some hilarious moments related to the titular severed head. And Peckinpah still is a good director so it's not"

"A cult classic in the finest sense of the word. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia is driven mainly by its sheer entertainment value, rather than above-average performances or other captivating technicalities. It's your average "on the road" crime drama, yet Sam Peckinpah takes it on a ride of its own, with numerous twists and turns that are hardly predictable. It has its fair share of awkward moments and unintentional humor, but I think that just adds to its sheer beauty. Vengeance, violence, "

"2.1 Paljon yhteiskuntakritiikkiä sisällään pitävä elokuva kohoaa Peckinpahin uran parhaimmaksi teokseksi, vaikka muutama muukin kova elokuva miehen meriiteissä onkin. Henkilöt saavat syvyyttä ja näitä esittävät näyttelijät, Warren Oates etenkin, tekevät loistavaa työtä. Realista toimintaa, ahdistavaksi menevää välienselvittelyä ja vielä kunnon loppu, niin kakku on valmis. Yksi parhaista elokuvista. "

"16.12. Tämä nauratti. Muuten elokuva onkin sitten todella pessimistinen tapaus, jossa kaikki ovat joko pahoja, tai sitten heillä menee huonosti. Elokuvassa etsittävän jo kuolleen Alfredo Garcian päällä on enemmän arvoa kuin yhdelläkään elokuvassa esiintyvällä ihmisellä eikä keneltäkään löydy pienintäkään myötätunnon hiventä muita ihmisiä kohtaan lukuun ottamatta Warren Oatesin hahmoa ja hänen naistaan. Pyrkimykset parempaan tarkoittavat epäonnistumisia ja muiden i"
