A gang of outlaws plan one final score to set them up for retirement. Sam Peckinpah’s epic western remains an American masterpiece. Shockingly violent for the time, it has lost none of its punch, or its caustic self-reflexive commentary on that violence.
Arguably the strongest Hollywood movie of the 1960s – a western that galvanizes the clichés of its dying genre with a shocking jolt of delirious carnage.
