BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA
Village strongman Emilio Fernández bellows the words of the title when he learns Alfredo has impregnated his daughter, offering a bounty of $1 million. Piano-playing bartender Warren Oates decides to seek the reward after a visit from some bizarre bounty hunters (who know that his lover Isela Vega was involved with Garcia, too). BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA makes for a potent cocktail of director Sam Peckinpah's themes and obsessions, with Oates giving an intense, committed performance (partially based on Peckinpah himself). DIR/SCR Sam Peckinpah; SCR Gordon T. Dawson; PROD Martin Baum. U.S., 1974, color, 112 min. RATED R
