This film had been on my radar for a while.  My attraction to the film are Peckinpah the director and Warren Oates, the main protagonist.  This proejct started slow for me.  The 1970's grimy look and feel of the project didn't help.  This continued for the first half of the film.  The second half is where this comes together.  The director manages to take a tight plot and wring tension and surprises out of it.  Warren Oates as usual brings a superb, nuanced and naturalistic character to the project.  The film is nasty, grimy and  has a very ugly look.  If you can get past that it pays off to watch this to its conclusion.  7.5 out of 10.

If I didn?t have more than copy of Garc?a and Mike?s passion & poetry DVD, I would snap this one up. Am still tempted anyway though.

Now, where are Imprint on Pat Garrett?

I want my 4 film version. Turner #1, TV version #2, Seydor #3, theatrical #4.
