Peckinpah's final word on a genre he helped define, and the greatest movie you almost never got a chance to see.
September 10, 2010
Regardless of length, this is one of Peckinpah's most deeply-felt films, a true meeting of two like souls.
August 9, 2008
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.
April 19, 2008
One of the best westerns of the 70s, if not all time.
April 4, 2008

...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.

October 23, 2004
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.
