Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia Reviews

Creative Loafing

It's distinguished by some truly original moments but also marred by a ramshackle narrative that leans a bit too heavily on regurgitated themes and stylistic flourishes.

Parallax View

It plays like a pulp noir thriller by way of a road movie of the damned, marinated in mescal and left to rot in the desert sun.

For Peckinpah, nothing is so ennobling as to face death in Mexico for the right reason.

Daily Radar

Fermented in a tragic romanticism placed firmly in a no-man's land between liberation and capitalism, Sam Peckinpah's 1974 thriller is a film that sticks in your mind's eye like a lingering sun spot.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Em seu filme mais pessoal, Peckinpah cria um anti-herói trágico que, através de cotidiano repleto de crueza e miséria, alcança uma improvável redenção através de suas ações e intenções tortuosas.

| Original Score: 5/5

It stands as one of Peckinpah's more daring films.

Combustible Celluloid

Oates' antihero is among the loneliest men in the cinema, and one of its greatest performances.

The movie's main problem is that the protagonist -- the dead head -- is a bore.

Boulder Weekly

Here's your head's up: Trashy and savagely comic, Alfredo Garcia is a voyage into the twisted head of one of Hollywood's most uncompromising directors.

Nick Schager
Slant Magazine

For something so bleak, so purposely revolting and unsentimental, there are reservoirs of profound poetry in Alfredo Garcia, the only film that Peckinpah ever considered completely his own.

Austin Chronicle

A profound existential adventure, twistedly comic and openly bitter, brought to life by those two maniacs: Peckinpah and Oates.

The movie is some kind of bizarre masterpiece. It's probably not a movie that most people would like, but violence, with Peckinpah, sometimes becomes a psychic ballet.
