The Wild Bunch

Dir. Sam Peckinpah. 1969, 145 mins. 70mm. With William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan, Edmond O’Brien, Warren Oates. As the western genre dried up around him, Sam Peckinpah assembled a group of grizzled veterans for one last trip into the breach. A cadre of aging outlaws, fleeing the authorities, attempts to make a final score for a Mexican general, but when things go awry, the gang finds itself in one of the wildest and bloodiest of screen shoot-outs. Peckinpah’s masterpiece is at once classical and revisionist, an exemplar of the very genre it so brilliantly subverts.
