Synopsis

Sam Peckinpah's earth-shaker about a holdup gang in the changing Southwest of the Nineteen Teens. The violence is self-consciously didactic, and the philosophy is self-consciously existential. It remains one of the imperative movies of its time, though its merits are highly variable from one moment to the next. William Holden and Robert Ryan, playing former sidekicks now on opposite sides of the law, are both laconically eloquent about middle-aged disgust. With Ernest Borgnine, Ben Johnson, Warren Oates, and L.Q. Jones.
