Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia free pdf In 1974, "The Wall Street Journal" called this movie "grotesque, sadistic, irrational, obscene, incompetent," while "New York Magazine" declared it "a catastrophe." Upon its initial release, Sam Peckinpahs notorious work took a critical and commercial nosedive, but in later years, the work was heralded as a demented masterpiece--a violent, hallucinatory autobiography and a brilliant example of "pure Peckinpah." This study revisits the making of this controversial film, as well as its original reception and subsequent reassessment. It reads the project as an auteur work, a genre film, a confession, and a bizarre self-parody.
