  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Sombre et macabre credo de la violence dont Sam Peckinpah s'est fait le chantre... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    The most personal and least studio-tampered with of Peckinpah's career of anti-optimistic and defeatedly-humanistic, doomed-macho statements. It's a film in which many scenes are memorable for some idea or emotional reason or another, despite many of them being either unneeded or feeling awkward in its flow. Still, it bursts with creativity for a grim affair right to the final shootout that's Peckinpah at his usual.

  5. Aaron Dillenbeck's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    The composition and use of depth were impeccable but the rest of the movie was a bit lacking. Slow moving with stagnant character development. The set design was aesthetically pleasing and had a dirtiness that mirrored the main character and his actions. Nice jump cutting but the brief slow mo moments seemed out of place and forced. The layering of images is really what stands out as special.

  6. Ethan's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    This is the work of pure alcoholic genius. This is also the performance of Warren Oates career as he mirrors the image of Sam Peckinpah and shoots his way through a gothic looking Mexico. Perhaps Peckinpah's darkest and most disturbing film.

  7. Dalibor's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Interesting piece of road movie, steered by a romantic tragedy subplot. Aside from occasional dead ends and a narrative loosely hanging above B-production pit, overall result is a constant Grim-Reaper-ish feeling framed into a sweaty, smelly setting of director's favorite filming location.

  8. Droog811's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Peckinpah at his nihilistic best. Not only is this a violent crime movie involving the delivery of the head of Alfredo Garcia but in an odd way it's also a love story between Oates' character Benny and his gal. Loved it!

  9. HSBilly's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    when you know that warren oates was such a decapitated-head-talker badass bartender

  10. João Biscaia's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Not my favourite film, but definitely my favourite title.

  11. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    "This is the logical extension of what Howard Hawks did with a lot of his movies." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/10/episode-73-long-fall-of-sam-peckinpah.html

  12. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    That damn head was a lot of trouble. Be careful what you wish for

  13. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Yılına göre oldukça başarılı sahneler içeren, kült bir Sam Peckinpah filmi. Yapım, Meksika manzaraları eşliğinde bir yol filmi tadında. Yol filmleri suç türüyle de etkileşime girince ortaya daha da izlenilesi bir film çıkıyor kanımca. Ayriyeten de western tarzı başarılı çatışma sahneleriyle de '74 yılına göre çok kaliteli sekanslar mevcuttu. Tarantino'nun Peckinpah sinemasından etkilenişini haklı çıkaran bir yapım..

  14. Okan Toprak's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    It was a great movie. Bennie's story was dramatically impressive.

  15. mubianer's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Far from flawless, but still a great film. Favourite scene: During the shoot-out, when they stop to wave for the passing American tourists. Such a profound and funny scene.

  16. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    this movie is showing that tarantino was a photocopy machine.

  17. There Will Be Josh Schasny's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    One of the most misunderstood movies of all time, Sam Peckinpah's reviled masterpiece was one of his last great films. Untouched by the studios, it was hated upon its release and still makes many "worst of" lists, but anyone familiar with Peckinpah's violent style will find poetic grittiness in every frame. Slowgoing but intense one the action begins, give it a try.

  18. janice.hughes's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Sam Pekinpah's strange existential film - a Tarantino of its time, but with greater meaning. Here's a man who is swimming against the tide and struggling in a 70s world that he doesn't understand and can only intermittently cope with. Warren Oates plays the fall guy tasked with taking the head of his one time friend. His cream suit gets as dishevelled as his mental state as he keeps up the dialogue with Al Garcia.

  19. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    My first Peckinpah was Straw Dogs..... Needless to say, I wasn't quite ready for Bloody Sam. So after a couple of trips to my nearest psychologist who helped me forget that life scarring experience, I reluctantly watched this masterpiece. Screw Michael Medved. 50 Worst films my ass. This is the weirdest love triangle. Keep your SUNRISE or DAYS OF HEAVEN and bring me the head of BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA

  20. Lucas Granero's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Geografía humana de desamparados que se mezcla en una (otra) geografía de aridez polvorienta que penetra por todos los poros. En el contexto de los límites, no parece haber moral que reste y todo vale dinero y nada vale la vida. Aunque, por supuesto, Peckinpah entiende tanto a estos hombres que hacia el final la venganza es siempre un plato mas sabroso cuando se sirve frío. Dato extra: Warren Oates con antejos de sol

  21. Tiago Inácio's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    nihilism and mysoginy. a pure 70s unfiltered relentless shootout

  22. T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    "Fifty or a hundred years from now people will be looking back on that film the way we look back on Faulkner today. Professors used to get fired or denied tenure for arguing that Faulkner was a great writer; today he's recognised as one of the greatest American writers. People will look back on us and wonder why we failed to understand 'Alfredo Garcia'." Paul Seydor

  23. TheBigCombo's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Rara vez uno ve un film donde el protagonista exhibe tan creiblemente su frustracion y descontento estando solo.

  24. knitsncycles's rating of the film Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Not sure how I feel about this one. Definitely weird and stylish.
