GRIND-FU INTERWEBS: SAM PECKINPAH
Sam freakin' Peckinpah. A true Hollywood maverick. I just watched a two part feature on the wonderful Bad Ass Digest website about his career, and it made me want to revisit his films. In particular, it made me want to revisit the most gonzo film he made: Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia.
If Grind-Fu still had funding we had planned a Warren Oates double feature of Alfredo Garcia and Two Lane Blacktop. Sadly, that day may never come. That's why you're gonna have to settle for this interweb double feature.
I'll start the double out with the Bad Ass Digest features to give you an idea of why I want to revisit Peckinpah's films, and then... ladies and gentlemen... Warren Oates.
WARNING: ALFREDO GARCIA IS DISTURBING AND VIOLENT AND EFFED UP. IT IS NOT FOR CHILDREN OR PEOPLE THAT KNOW OF THE EXISTENCE OF CHILDREN.
