Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia concluded a remarkable period for filmmaker Sam Peckinpah. Det bragte to en en 7-årig og syv-film-run of mesterverk som inkluderte tabby-breaking ultra-violence of The Wild Bunch and Straw Dogs, og de mere elegante toner af The Ballad of Cable Hogue og Junior Bonner. A love story that plays out in a brutal environment, Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia is sitting somewhere between these moods and may just be Bloody Sam's greatest work, as well as his most autobiographical.
Warren Oates plays Bennie, a piano player in a Mexican bar who gets himself involved in the manhunt for Alfredo Garcia, a man with a million dollar price tag on his head having impregnated the daughter of crime boss El Jefe (Emilio Fernández). Sensing an easy pay day, Bennie takes his girlfriend, Elita (Isela Vega) on a trip that will prove fatalistic for many of those involved.
Under en karriere som var blighted av studiointerferens, Peckinpah ville senere sige at Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia was the only who ended up exactly as he wanted: I did it exactly the way I wanted to. Good or bad, like it or not, that was my movie. And it was. This is as close to Pure Peckinpah as it gets beautiful, violent, troubling, heartbreaking, astonishing.
Note: Limited bonus disc includes - Sam Peckinpah: Man of Iron The Director's Cut. Containing more than ten hours of previously unseen interview footage.
