Documenting the pursuit of outlaw Billy the Kid by Sheriff Pat Garrett, this is arguably Sam Peckinpah’s best film. It’s a treat to see this sad and beautiful film on the big screen.
It has an all-pervading sadness and uses Bob Dylan's inspired soundtrack as an extra character, much as Robert Altman lassooed Leonard Cohen into McCabe and Mrs Miller.
The singer also puts in a typically enigmatic appearance as "Alias", Kris Kristofferson is outstanding as The Kid and the background cast including Harry Dean Stanton, Jack Elam and Slim Pickens are remarkable.
On Sat 28 Jan we will present the Dylan on Film Talk.
