A Girl Is a Gun

Une aventure de Billy le Kid

Directed by Luc Moullet
France, 1971


Billy the Kid is both ruthless and bumbling in this impressionistic French-made western. Ruthless, in that he tracks down a witness to a robbery and kills him in cold blood. Bumbling, in that he literally stumbles over things throughout the film.

Critics reviews

Luc Moullet’s Une Aventure de Billy le Kid is a mad movie, so nothing unlikely that I hear about it surprises me… [1971 was] also the year of Altman’s McCabe & Mrs. Miller, when genre deconstruction was the order of the day, but Moullet’s repudiation of the well-made film is far more radical and complete than even Altman’s, and what he performs here is genre deconstitution.
