about this item

Director Sam Peckinpah (1925–1984) won an Oscar. His filmography is short and uneven, and his movies have never found a wide audience. Despite this, many filmmakers today—including Tarantino and Scorsese—count him as a major influence.Sam Peckinpah, edited by Fernando Ganzo, investigates how this unique filmmaker can have such an outsized legacy, exploring films as diverse asNew Mexico and Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, as well as Peckinpah’s television work. This lavishly illustrated volume will delight both scholars and fans—as well as bringing the underappreciated Peckinpah to new audiences in a new millennium.
