  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Edifiant et nostalgique ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. Moses Lumpkin's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Penkinpah's octogenarian love letter to the stubborn libertarian ideology.

  3. Josh Lewellen's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Far and away my favorite Peckinpah film, containing some of the tenderest sequences in cinema.

  4. Khach Glauberrocha's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Super!! This is like David Lynch directing his Straight Story

  5. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Not a classic peck film but an often beautiful sweet and soulful film about the end of the west, a regular peck motif. Cable just couldn't get his happy ending even tho he mostly gave up on revenge and chose love over wealth. Modernity just literally rolled over him. Sorry for the spoiler

  6. Aardsy's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Jason Robards rocks the hell out of this.

  7. Bilouaustria's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Such a weird and unique western-comedy. The one of a kind Peckinpah got here his strangest scenario (i mean who else would have believed in this story). Of course the film has its clear political charge, about the market and its lack of humanity. Very 1970s, very hippie, i won't tell you it's all good but i understand why man can some kind of affection for it.

  8. Ethan's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    This was Peckinpah's favorite of his films and it is certainly his most light hearted film and is basically Peckinpah's ultimate fantasy.

  9. Dalibor's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Peckinpah's most underrated work is his most sarcastic view of dying West. Picturesque characters, innovative story, and a script that seems to randomly shift between genres and subplots as it goes, just to end with a middle finger hidden somewhere behind camera.

  10. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Peckinpah en una comedia que tiene un sabor melancólico sobre un hombre que, cual personaje bíblico, será rescatado (por la divina providencia) de un desierto y a partir de ello su vida dará un nuevo giro. Cable es un hombre hosco y resentido rumbo a la madurez y la redención. En su camino se cruzarán algunos que serán contagiados de esa benevolencia que usualmente reprime. Un filme gentíl.

  11. IV NEVER BEEN TO A RODEO's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

  12. José Neves's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Cinematography by Lucien Ballard.

  13. A47's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    "The devil seeks to destroy you with machines!" Enough cannot be said about this film. An imperfect masterpiece.

  14. joey Noodles's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Robards is terrific, but I have come to expect that from such a wonderful actor. Stella Stevens is fairly cringe-worthy however, and David Warner has been given a very strange role, but he handles it well, the rest of the cast is very good, but watching this the day after The Wild Bunch and thinking about films like Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid I remind my self of how much more comfortable Peckinpah seems when he is

  15. Jason Callen's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    He's literally crushed by modernity.

  16. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Peckinpah buries his favorite genre with the help of an outstanding trio: Jason Robards as an outlaw with strict moral codes, Stella Stevens as a town whore with too much heart, and David Warner as a preacher full of lust. This isn't by any means a languid, morose funeral; but a festive farewell to a time and place that seemed to stay isolate from the rest of the ever changing modern world.

  17. Neither/Nor's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Parable of a genre's twilight.

  18. lauli's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    What a lovely film. Quite uncharacteristic of Peckinpah, since it is humorous and quite optimistic. I loved Jason Robards in it.

  19. mjgildea's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    A great Sam Peckinpah movie despite the fact its got very few charcteristics of a Peckinpah movie. This movie alone proves that Jason Robards was the most under-appreciated actor ever. The movie's not without some painful moments (namely that duet between Robards and Stella Stevens and this sped-up silliness that Peckinpah decided to run with) but that last 20 minutes was superb. This movie is indeed a ballad.

  20. NoOneJones's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Murray Rothbards dream world. Wonderful.

  21. Th MZA's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    Robards' charisma carries this one. His version of talking to God now jumps to near the top of my preferred prayer styles. However, had I been him, I'da dumped the hoe in this movie and gone back over and boned C. Cardinale in Once upon a Time in the West -- that missed connection was tragick.

  22. Jack Hemingway's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

  23. Dave's rating of the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue

    I love this movie. It's got an understated humor to everything that makes it so charming. Cable Hogue's revenge scene displays Peckinpah's mastery of action sequences. And Jason Robards shines throughout.
