Tribute to Sam Peckinpah - Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974)

KETELHUIS | Online €5 | Kassa €6

It is Sam Peckinpah's last masterpiece, and his most personal and painful work.

Tribute to Sam Peckinpah
Sam Peckinpah was one of the greatest and most original directors in the history of Hollywood, but it took decades until he finally got his due. Peckinpah forever changed action cinema, and he inserted both a dark edge and a vulnerable humanity into the Western genre. He created a stock company of some of the finest character actors of his time. And he was a total asshole, a huge pain in the ass, and a completely self-destructive drunk. They called him Bloody Sam. During April we will screen four of his hardboiled and superbly made films. 

Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974)
An American bartender (Warren Oates) and his prostitute girlfriend go on a road trip through the Mexican underworld to collect a $1 million bounty on the head of a dead gigolo. Fermented in alcohol and tragic romanticism, Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia is hardcore trashy, masterfully artistic, great entertainment and a quintessential action flick all at once. It is Sam Peckinpah's last masterpiece, and his most personal and painful work.
