DurangoDurango's the name of a Mexican state situated in the heart of the country, and it's the setting for one of the greatest and most notorious films, Western or otherwise, ever to be made: The Wild Bunch.
its violence and groundbreaking action cinematography, The Wild Bunch is Sam Peckinpah's classic tale of betrayal and opportunism, focusing on a gang of
bandits being hunted by one of their own from Texas to Mexico. During an
era when the popularity of Westerns was waning, Peckinpah made certain the
genre went out with a resounding BANG, employing the kind of realism he felt
had been missing from other similar films. Filmed on location in Mexico,
The Wild Bunch offers a gritty glimpse at what life may have been like south
of the border in 1913.
