Don't expect much - very dated. Practically unwatchable by today's standards
Really wanted to like this movie, since I've been hearing about how great it is for so long. But I think most people watching it today are not going to be very impressed, regardless of it influence and reputation.
First, its a slow moving movie. Very slow, glacial even. You have to wait a long time for anyone to say or do anything interesting through a lot of the movie.
Second, the sound is horrible. All dialogue has been dubbed in, badly.
Acting? I guess you could call it that. To be fair, with all the dubbed in lines its hard to evaluate. Oates is particularly horrible.
Cinemotagraphy? Peckipah definitely didn't waste any money on good quality film. What did he use? Super 8? The movie has that completely washed out look of the worst movies of the sixties and seventies.
And the costumes in the movie? Unintentionally hilarious. The worst excesses of 70s clothing.
So far, I haven't been able to make it all the way through, but its been a painful experience so far. I'll bet that most people seeing this movie won't make it past the first half hour. Its that unwatchable.
