Why isn't THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND (1983) included in the poll?

Good question!

I wonder how many people would vote for it anyway.

I'm still wondering if anyone will ever join me with my solitary vote for "Cross of Iron"  Huh

I LOVE "Cross of Iron".  I think it's one of his best films.  REALLY underrated!

eh.... BUT... "The Wild Bunch" exists.  Sorry (I'm not!).

Hah, Convoy got a vote too. But it wasn't mine ...

The voting would be more interesting if we could vote for 3 or 5 films.

I've always found it strange how some people talk of Peckinpah's decline and treat Cross of Iron as if it were part of this. In many ways it represents the zenith of his career. There's a great quote from editor Tony Lawson in this regard (although it's rather ambiguous as to which film he is referring at the end):

Quote:
[Nic Roeg] came to one of the screenings of Cross of Iron, afterwards he was very generous, he said "My God did you do that?" So Bad Timing came up and luckily his delayed start date meant I could cut the film. I think if I could have film on my gravestone that would be the one. It was an editor's film, definitely, even if I look at it now I think, did I really do that?"
