Storyline

Requiem for Billy the Kid recounts the life of Billy the Kid. The premise of the film is an investigation into the often-challenged circumstances that led to the death of the 21-year old outlaw in the hands of sheriff Pat Garrett on July 14, 1881. As we follow the modern sheriff on camera, off camera Billy the Kid, played by Kris Kristofferson, gives his own account of the events. Part poetic evocation, part road-movie, Requiem for Billy the Kid is essentially homage to the western genre and to the people who today still live up to that life. Written by S.Gillet

Fascinating documentary
1 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film seemed to head in one direction and then switched without a satisfactory explanation. That aside, it was a fascinating tale of a familiar character from the Old West.

Anne Feinsilber did a very good job directing this film and it makes on want to see her do more.

It started as an exploration of where and how Billy the Kid really died. Was it in New Mexico at the hands of Pat garret, as many believe, or was it as an old man in Texas. Neither side really wanted the answer known for economic reasons, so it was just dropped.

But the use of movies about Billy the Kid, old photos, and interviews with those who were aware of the past and those who were involved in the present in the competing towns made for a compelling tale of history and supposition.

Anyone who is interested in the Old West and the colorful characters that populated our history would be very interested in this film.
