Regarding the theatrical version of Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid, nowadays one can get the impression that this film did not get any recognition before a longer cut appeared in 1988, but that is not true. Peckinpah?s film found a lot of admirers from the beginning on. Having returned to Hardy?s Western encyclopedia, I also reread his entry about Pat Garrett, which was written before the longer cut was released, and it starts with ?A masterpiece, despite being mangled? and ends with ?This film is essential viewing?. I easily agree, and in between there is this quote: "Peckinpah offers what one critic has called ?a paralysed epic? ". Paralysed epic, that wonderfully describes the fatalistic view of the film, in which (unlike the exploding The Wild Bunch) everything implodes.

Criterion, Eureka, Arrow... anyone... where's my four disc special edition (TCM, Seydor, Theatrical, TV)? I've only seen the first two.
