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.

Intense gruesome crime melodrama that's set in modern Mexico.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.
Louis Black
Austin Chronicle
March 10, 2003
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.

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.

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