A Down and Dirty Picture

This week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie is an unexpected delight as Guy Maddin, legend of Canadian avant-garde cinema, tackles Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, the sweat-soaked feast of flesh, blood and torqued machismo from American maverick Sam Peckinpah.

Guy is a pretty thoughtful sort, so the conversation takes some fascinating turns, including a dip into the way Peckinpah’s inchoate politics feel right at home in the present day. I had a great time with this one, and I expect you will too.
