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

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 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.

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

while Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia is certainly a memento mori, replete with intimations of its characters' corporeal nature and mortality, it is also, ultimately, a bizarre buddy pic

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.

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.

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

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

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

April 3, 2014
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.

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.

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