  1. I've always loved Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia. I've also often thought of the film as perhaps Peckinpah's most personal, it sort of offers the viewer a surprisingly open window into Peckinpah's psyche...

  2. Excellent show on an excellent movie.

    May I ask the version of "Guantanamera" that plays in the end?
