Convoy Regie Sam Peckinpah


…Even Convoy (1978), a project that Peckinpah himself was said to disown when finished, based on a novelty song by C. W. McCall and Chip Davis, is a moving utopian fantasy of a trucker-led grassroots revolution.

The troubled, runaway production of Convoy — which saw the cocaine-addicted, alcoholic director often incapacitated on set and the film taken out of his hands in the editing room — pretty much destroyed what was left of Peckinpah’s Hollywood career. The film nevertheless became one of his biggest hits, and it’s not hard to see why: It’s a fascinatingly stupid movie with some real dash.

Despite its poor reputation, much of Convoy is amazingly, surpassingly beautiful, rendering the huge tractor trailers graceful, seemingly weightless. The vehicles cut through the expressively hot western tableaus with an ease and a sense of fluidity that’s rarely been managed by action directors, with the occasional exception of someone like Steven Spielberg or George Miller… Unfortunately, the plot, such as it is, interferes.
