WILD BUNCH, THE

The balletic violence and weary fatalism that Peckinpah brings to his vision of the American West is underscored by some of sweatiest, dirtiest, bloodiest performances from some of the the toughest, ugliest actors of all time. Ernest Borgnine, Ben Johnson and Warren Oates shoot, screw, drink, and ride horses all while imbuing the film’s harsh, empty world with a sense of real poetry. (Greg MacLennan)
