Wealthy Mexican Emilio Fernandez puts a million-dollar bounty on the head of Alfredo Garcia, who has seduced and knocked up Fernandez's daughter. Trouble is, Alfredo Garcia is already dead and buried. Barkeep Bennie (Warren Oates) is appointed by two of Fernandez's hit men (Robert Webber and Gig Young) to travel to the small town in whose cemetery Garcia is interred, planning to dig up the body and recover the head; along the way, he meets and falls for prostitute Elita (Isela Vega), who had become involved with Garcia. But these two fail to anticipate the arrival of fellow corpse-seekers, equally desperate to collect the bounty. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia: I have yet to see a bad Peckinpah movie. I'm not the biggest fan of Ride The High Country, but after a few of his works, I've come to expect good things from the man. However, I wasn't prepared for this movie. I wasn't a huge Warren Oates fan before I saw this. I mean, I liked him as the heavy-fisted hard-assed bastard from The Wild Bunch, but he wasn't a William Holden kinda guy, y'know? In this movie, he owns. Everything about this movie owns. It's a damn Peckinpah love story. I know that sounds lame, but that's exactly what this movie is, and it's the best damn love story I've ever seen. Emotionally heavy gunfights only add to what is my favorite movie yet from Bloody Sam. ***** out've *****

People are Bad.
films that reinforced my fear that people, in fact, are rotten.
Movies I've Never Seen.
A list of many great movies that I've yet to see, a couple that I've already seen, and some not so great ones. Everything that's on my queue - watch them with me!
