BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA (1974) (ENCORE EDITION) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Warren Oates, Isela Vega, Gig Young, Robert Webber, Emilio Fernandez, Kris Kristofferson, Helmut Dantine
Directed By:  Sam Peckinpah
Composed By:  Jerry Fielding

“Extraordinary, a true and heartfelt work by a great director who endured despite, or perhaps because of, the demons that haunted him…I can feel Sam Peckinpah’s heart beating and head pounding in every frame.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“There are reservoirs of pure poetry in Alfredo Garcia…this magnificently depraved pièce de résistance.” – Nick Schager, Slant Magazine

Reviled on its release, reassessed today as a masterpiece, Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974) is pantheon director Sam Peckinpah’s nihilistic yet poetic tale of Bennie (Warren Oates, iconically great), a wastrel sometime piano player lost in the wilds of Mexico. He and his beautiful, tragic lover (the fragile/strong Isela Vega) stumble across one last, perilous chance at happiness: in order to claim more money than they’ve ever dreamed of, all they have to do is retrieve the head of a wanted man. But the path to their ultimate escape is littered with dangers – some, of course, of the fatal variety. Gorgeously supported by Jerry Fielding’s poignant score, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
