Movie Reviews

Five stars for the movie, zero stars for the DVD
Aloysius | Wien | 03/06/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"What a shameful presentation of the first great Peckinpah. 1961 the directorial debut of Sam the Man anticipated not only the Italo Western but most of the other great Westerns to come until Tombstone and Deadwood. The relation of a man who helps a mother to bury the son he killed is one of the strongest love stories ever filmed in Apache county and beyond. Two bruised souls shine bright in the dirt. Maureen O`Hara and Brian Keith, the deadly companions fully deserve a fully restored widescreen release."

"In the good old days, you could recognize a great movie without being smothered by any cult or comment by a "specialist".
That first Peckinpah picture was really great. The kind of simple western in the Boetticher tradition.
Along with some Gordon Douglas and Harry Keller pictures, it was he only kind that could have saved the western.
You can't recognize anything here: an 1,33 version of an early Panavision photography, sporting a transfer who would have shamed
the worst cheap VHS cassette.
