Sam Peckinpah

I read an article about Sam Peckinpah, one of my favorite filmmakers, in today’s Independent (you can read it here).  London’s BFI is holding a season of his movies this month and a new documentary is also in the pipeline.

His films are certainly not for the squeamish – his style has been described as  “visceral” – but if you can get past the violence they can be truly lyrical.
