Yes I have a feeling that happens quite often. If I remember correctly, Frayling mentioned he had to cut his Leone biography down significantly (and it's still huge and very detailed).

Looking forward to reading this now

Maybe this book will help to originate further work on the film for a future Blu Ray release.

Btw, I just re-read a 1974 interview from the Criterion disc of Straw Dogs, in which Peckinpah says that PG&BtK "is really not mine anymore, but in the midst of all activities, I am busy re-editing it. It will soon be re-distributed in a version whose final editing I will have assumed."

I wish that really had happened, that there is his version somewhere in the vaults of MGM, which time had forgot about.

He should have done that (and re-edit Major Dundee) instead of shooting The Killer Elite.

Just for the sake of completness, here's a brief mention of the book edited by Fernando Ganzo for the Locarno/Paris 2015 retrospectives.

This is quite subjective but, as I fell in love with Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia immediately, those passages where the author is describing how he gradually came to like the film were a bit disappointing to me. I fell there's more to be said about it than what the book offers - for instance on how it's best viewed on several levels (literal, metaphorical, absurd, existential...).
I'd love to hear Monte Hellman talk about the film as its feels to me like Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia is, on a more visceral level, Peckinpah's film that most resembles Hellman's sensibility.
But on the other hand, it's such an unusual film with moments that can so easily repulse many people that I'm quite glad that there's at least this one book dedicated only to it...


Anyone feels, like me, that Alfredo Garcia is Peckinpah's most Bunuel-like film?
