BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA
In a Mexican town, an alcoholic American piano player is coerced into searching for the severed head of the man who knocked up the daughter of a powerful and vicious landowner. What follows is a surreal journey to the end of a man's soul. One of the most potent films of Its era, and one of its director's greatest accomplishments. Starring Warren Oates, Isela Vega, Robert Webber, and Gig Young. Directed by Sam Peckinpah. In COLOR. 35mm. 112 mins. 1974. Tuesday at 8:00 only!
Charles Willeford's incendiary novel hit the screen with such forceful ferocity that it was almost uniformly scorned by most of the few who saw it. Today, this sordid but melancholy tale (also known as BORN TO KILL under its re-release title) of a man who makes his living by training cocks to fight to the vicious death, emerges as one of the most individualistic and challenging films of the 70s. NOT AVAILABLE ON DVD. Starring Warren Oates, Harry Dean Stanton, Richard B. Shull, Ed Begley, Jr., Laurie Bird, and Troy Donahue. Directed by Monte Hellman. In COLOR. 35mm. 83 mins. 1974. USA. Tuesday at 6:15 and 10:00.
