The Wild Bunch

Personally I don’t have much special feeling about this moive.

It’s definitely long and the plot is huge, composed of a series of stories. All roles seem “bravo”,

and the last shootout is tremendous, so perhaps for guys, this is really exciting.

I don’t like the excessive violence in it, but I marvel at Peckinpah’s shooting and editing

techniques, with my assumption that there has no “computer artificiality” been invented to

modify and embellish the shots at that epoch. So I was always wondering how he did it when I

saw the sparging of blood and particularly the shot of the explosion of the timber bridge and the

falling down of those horses. I guess Peckinpah would be one of the pioneers of this kind of

violent action movies, and also, maybe editing plays an important role in it.
