The Wild Bunch screening
Friday, February 17 @ 19:30–21:54
The Dryden will screen The Wild Bunch (Sam Peckinpah, U.S. 1969, 144 min., 35mm) as part of the Ernest Borgnine series.
In Peckinpah's revered classic, a group of mostly aging bank robbers (led by William Holden and including Ernest Borgnine) head south to pull off one last job for a dangerous Mexican warlord, while a posse closes in. Violent, brilliantly edited, and brimming with tour-de-force action sequences that blend seamlessly with quiet, reflective moments, The Wild Bunch is a true masterpiece of cinema.
