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

Best doc about the American West
10 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best doc. about the West that I have seen. I love the tone and the time the director takes with her lingering camera on the faces of the people who tell their stories. I even like how she crosses Billy's story with Rimbaud... There is not a single hint of the usual sneering French irony when it comes to people of the actual United States... Even the negative comments of Rudy Wurlitzer about the trend in US history toward George W. Bush didn't really bother as I realized that probably only people who are favorably disposed to Bush or at least are prepared to admit the complexity of Bush as a man and as president are watching movies like this.

I hope the director will do another doc... remembering slowness is all. How about the Gunfight at the OK corral?
