The Wild Bunch

Director: Sam Peckinpah
Starring: William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Sanchez
Duration: 145 min

In 1913, as the wild frontier is tamed and the new world of the twentieth century takes hold, an aging gang of gunslingers head to Mexico for one last job: the robbery of a railroad store. But a posse of bounty hunters are lying in wait…

Brutal, callous and passionate from its opening sequence, Peckinpah’s elegiac film rewrites John Ford’s western mythology by looking at the Old West from the point of view of the marginalised outlaws rather than the law-abiding settlers.
