Except for page 108 I like it as well Smiley


You mean that photo that would like to look like it's from The Wild Bunch?

Reading the article about Sam's early films, an analogy came to my mind which I hadn't thought of before: Major Dundee actually contains a storyline - that of Dundee's troops coming down to Mexico, freeing the Mexicans from the French, being celebrated for it at first, and then leaving the territory unheralded, having won a battle but not really being the winners - that is actually pretty reminiscent of Kurosawa's Seven Samurai...

Well Peckinpah was a Kurosawa fan - although didn't he say his favorite was Rashomon in an interview?

I'm still only seeing the French version listed anywhere. What I'm assuming to be the US version of the English language one (as I posted earlier) doesn't seem to be coming out until Feb 2016. Maybe a UK version will be coming out sooner than that...
