The following line is interesting:

Quote:
Louis Lombardo’s editing is artful, although the ending is overextended and a number of flashbacks are rather clumsily introduced.


I'd say just calling it "artful" is a rather large understatement. Regarding the clumsiness of the flashbacks, do you think this is referring to how the studio forced Peckinpah and Lombardo to use dissolves to go in and out of them rather than the straight cuts that Lombardo had originally proposed?

Yes, I'd say so. In fact those dissolves are about the only serious real flaw of the film I always felt.
As for the ''overextended ending'', I don't know what he is talking about Smiley.

I would love it to cut these dissolves out. The cuts would easily improve this already fantastic scene.
