Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974)

3 years, 11 months ago at Mar 6 20:48
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.

"23.8. (DVD) Yliampuvaa väkivaltaa sisältävässä leffassa tyyppi kaivaa kärpäsiä kiihottavan irtopään haudasta ja roudailee sitä pussissa ympäri Meksikoa. Filmi keskeytyi katselun aikana sähkökatkoksen myötä kahdesti."

"5.3, DVD Warren Oates on rähjääntynyt baarimikko, joka rahapalkkion toivossa lähtee metsästämään Alfredo Garcia-nimisen jantterin päätä. Ulkoasultaan elokuva on sopivan pölyinen ja rähjäinen, mutta sisältö ei vakuuta; minulle tämä on kuin yjsi tavallinen kostoleffa (jos tämän sellaiseksi voi edes luokitella) muiden joukossa. Hahmojen tekojen ja niiden vaikuttimien välisiä syy-seuraus-suhteita on vaikea hahmottaa, minkä takia jotkin kohtaukset tuntuvat typeriltä. Esinerki"

"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"

"19.11. Niinsanotusti erilainen road-movie, jossa Warren Oatesin aarrejahti kallistuu hiljalleen kohti amok-juoksua. Ohjaajan töistä tuttu likaisuus ja mustanpuhuvuus viehättää edelleen, vaikken häntä nostaisi vieläkään suursuosikkeihini. Täytyy kuitenkin myöntää, että Filmihullun viimeisintä numeroa selaillessani jotenkin vaikutuin Peckinpahin mielenkiintoisesta persoonasta. Vaikka nyt muun muassa Alfredo Garcian kuvaukset kävivät aika kaoottisiksi, ohjaajan töistä (jopa si"

I Recommend...(The Short List) (80 movies items)

" Drama/Action Directed by Sam Peckinpah. Stars Warren Oates. This is a bleak one. There's a bounty out on a man named Alfredo Garcia. Warren Oates, playing an alcoholic piano player who takes his prostitute girlfriend on a trip to bring back his head. The first half is slow, a portrait of two people barely holding on. The second half is wall-to-wall murder. Incredibly divisive movie. Some people (like Ebert) say it's one of the all-time greats, others think it's a train wreck. Obviously, I l"

“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 this author: enemy of the world and a lover of alcohol.

Warren Oates is responsible for making peckimpanian sum up the world of Bennie, the best character (along with Pike's "Wild Bunch") of the complete filmography of the director. In "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia" there are no half measures or there are subtleties. It's a dirty movie, full of dust that the director portrays regard” read more
