SAM PECKINPAH. Ed. by Fernando Ganzo. Capricci, Nantes, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Intellect, University of Chicago Press. 196 pp. with 73 ills. (15 col.). 24 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781783206193 In English.
Published on the occasion of a retrospective film festival devoted to the cinematic and television work of American director and actor Peckinpah (1925-1984), a program that was organized by the Festival del Film Locarno in 2015 in collaboration with Cinematheque suisse, Lausanne, and Cinematheque francais, Paris. Publisher's description: Peckinpah's filmography is short and uneven, and his movies have never found a wide audience. Despite this, many filmmakers today -- including Tarantino and Scorsese -- count him as a major influence. Sam Peckinpah, edited by Fernando Ganzo, investigates how this unique filmmaker can have such an outsized legacy, exploring films as diverse as New Mexico and Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, as well as Peckinpah's television work. This lavishly illustrated volume will delight both scholars and fans -- as well as bringing the underappreciated Peckinpah to new audiences in a new millennium.
