This one is a masterpiece light-years better that Pat Garret & Billy the Kid. This film updates the traditional American anti-hero of films like Huston's "Treasure Of The Sierra Madre" Mitchum's "Out of the Past", Eastwood's "Leone trilogy" and re-incarnates him as a decadent "lounge lizard, piano bar sleaze-ball", out originally for the money and then out for revenge. This film is tight and funny with the continuing one sided dialog between Benny and Alfredo a riot. Benny's pimp mobile of choice an oil burning red Chevy Impala convertible is an environmental disaster as it lays a contrail down on the highway.

The best Peckinpah I've seen so far.

Great cinematography, great dialog's and memorable one liners. Benny take your place in the Panthenon of Anti- Heroes
