Combustible Celluloid

Regardless of length, this is one of Peckinpah's most deeply-felt films, a true meeting of two like souls.

It's one of the great tragic true stories of the old wild West, the story of two outlaw friends ending up enemies as one turns over and becomes a lawman - expressly for the purpose of hunting down his friend.

One of the best westerns of the 70s, if not all time.

...it could've %u2014 should've %u2014 been [Peckinpah's] third or fourth masterpiece (that depends on who's doing the counting), and the movie he'd been building towards his entire career.

The film is visually stunning, and Peckinpah makes great use of his Durango, Mexico, locations.

Some Peckinpah devotees consider the film among his finest work, others regard it as, well, troubled. Fascinating, nonetheless.

The mushy pretensions of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid suggest either that [Peckinpah] has begun to take talk about his genius too seriously (it can happen to the best) or that he has fallen in with bad company.

It's a movie that exists almost entirely on one note -- a low, melancholy one -- and achieves what I thought would have been impossible for him Peckinpah: he's boring.

Sam Peckinpah's virtually unseen Western turns out to be unseen for a reason.
