Fine Documentary for Western Fans
4 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wanted to say something meaningful, and although usually not want for abundant verbiage, I cannot add much to the four very accurate, candid and totally perceptive reviews already written here.

Kudos to the writers.

The review comments about Michael Madsen's appearance in the Peckinpaugh documentary amused me. I thought I might be the only person who felt this way, and wrote it off to Madsen's appearance in so many totally violent films himself, albeit only one (irrelevant) movie (the remake of "The Getaway") that even remotely involved Peckinpah.

The Peckinpah documentary periodically runs on the Western Channel; set your DVR. . . . . it's, indeed, worth it just to hear Kris Kristofferson's morning after drinking voice.
