(Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid)
Sam Peckinpah / USA, 1973
English version / Czech subtitles, 121 min
“This land is growing old and I want to grow old with it,” Pat Garrett says to his ex-companion, now an enemy from the other side of the law Billy the Kid. It is the rationale behind his suddenly wearing a Sheriff star and it is also what forced him to a mission he hates – to catch Kid and hand him to justice. Another of Peckinpah’s films that returns to the model of two friends, who are forced by their or somebody else’s will to pull guns at each other.
