This film is one arguably one of the greatest westerns ever made with a magnificent cast and terrific direction by Sam Peckinpah unfortunately its hard to say what is the best edition of this I personally before the 84 turner preview cut but the 2005 recut is still plenty good, what's for sure is that the studios original edit should be disregarded as a merciless hack job made to satisfy a studio that didn't understand the director or his work. As is it is the film is a beautiful idilic and quiet piece that helps show a world embroiled in violence and about two men who are trying to escape it in their own ways and instead find themselves drawn close and close to a showdown neither one wants.
