WILD BUNCH, THE (1969)
In this gritty classic, aging outlaw William Holden prepares to retire after one final robbery. Joined by his gang, which includes Ernest Borgnine and brothers Warren Oates and Ben Johnson, Holden discovers the heist is a setup orchestrated in part by his old partner, Robert Ryan. As the remaining gang takes refuge in Mexican territory, Ryan trails them, resulting in fierce gunfights with plenty of casualties. Director Sam Peckinpah's THE WILD BUNCH is a powerful tale of hangdog desperados bound by a code of honor that rates as one of the all-time greatest Westerns and perhaps one of the greatest of all films.
