Great title. Great movie. All hail "Bloody" Sam.

Hey, fuck you. "Looks to be" is like saying the virgin mary is a whore. It's like saying your own mother is a crab ridden cum dumpster. Peckinpah deserves better!

There is a pretty good book called Savage Cinema : Sam Peckinpah and the Rise of Ultraviolent Movies by Stephen Prince. It talks about the impact of his films and goes into a bit about the life of 'Bloody' Sam. At times some of the critical analysis can drag on a bit but it's a worthwhile read for a Peckinpah fan.

If you like Peckinpah you should see The Proposition. Great gory western. I think it's still showing at the Music Box.

How can you honestly recommend anyone to go see a kick ass movie like "The Proposition" on that half-ass "screen" they showed it on? I think the look on our faces when we walked into that room was probably priceless:

Driving around for half hour trying to find parking because of Cubs game: at least $10 in aggravation
Paying for parking that is usually free: $15
Movie ticket for a cool but none-the-less old ass theater: $10
Realizing you are about to watch said movie on an audio/video system circa 1980: Priceless

This isn't a knock on The Music Box as a whole...just their shady "2nd screen". I'd wait for DVD (it's a purchase) or maybe until it shows up in a different theater.

The second screen is more like a large TV....

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which "unskilled people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it." The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average.
