The Reviews for Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973) 720p

I Should Have Known BetterReviewed byEthereal-CloudVote: 5/10

Where to start? First and most obvious is the truly annoying 'soundtrack' provided by the droning voice of Bob Dylan, If you're a fan, I'm sorry. Bob Dylan can't act (or sing) and this movie is proof positive of that, but I'm sure it put butts in the theater seats due to his celebrity. Second, The story was obviously revisionist history run amok, the movie loses points for that as well. Third, I can't stand Kris Kristofferson, not to mention that he's completely mis-cast in the roll of Billy the Kid. Fourth, Sam Peckinpah is highly over rated as a director (not that anyone else could have made this mess of a movie more palatable)

Are you getting the point?

James Coburn did an admirable job but I got the feeling that he knew this movie was doomed from the start.

Simply put, Sam Peckinpah's "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid" is one ofthe last great Westerns ever made. Like most of 'Bloody' Sam's films,"Pat Garrett" was molested and cut by the studio, MGM upon its release.The film would be panned by audiences and critics. It's a shame thatPeckinpah never lived to see the longer cut of the film finallyreleased to a wider audience on VHS. It would become a cult hit and isnow known as one of the best Westerns and one of Peckinpah's best.

The film depicts the final days of Billy the Kid (Kris Kristofferson)before he was killed by his friend Pat Garrett (James Coburn), thenewly appointed sheriff of the territory. Other than the fineperformances of Coburn and Kristofferson, the film also featuresexcellent supporting roles from famous Western regulars and members ofPeckinpah's stock of actors. The long list of players include JasonRobards, Bob Dylan (also the film's music composer), Slim Pickens, R.G.Armstrong, L.Q. Jones, Katy Jurado, Paul Fix, Chill Wills, Jack Elam,Harry Dean Stanton, Richard Jaeckel, and Dub Taylor. Most of thecharacters are killed off in the film, violently evoking both the deathof the West and Westerns.

Peckinpah's two regular themes are here: the death of the West, and menliving past their time and deciding whether or not they should acceptchange. My favorite scene in the film takes place about halfway throughthe film. Pat Garrett, isolated and alone, is sitting by his fire neara river bank. He sees a man about his age and his family sailing on araft down the river. The man is shooting bottles for target practice.Garrett takes a shot at a bottle. The man sees Garrett and shoots back.Garrett then takes cover behind the nearby tree. They both are aimingat each, but just lower their guns are stare at each other. The raftcontinues to flow down the river. The scene, which was the reason whyPeckinpah, Coburn, and almost everyone wanted to take part in the film,has so much meaning to it. 1. It references an earlier scene withGarrett and Sheriff Baker (Slim Pickens). Baker was building a boat sohe could drift out of territory because of how awful it has become.Tragicaly, Baker does not get a chance to see this dream. 2. The scenealso references the shoot-out between Garrett and Black Harris (L.Q.Jones). Before his death, Harris yells to Garrett "Us old boysshouldn't be doing this to each other." The same thing happens betweenGarrrett and the man on the raft.

Other than the performances, the film also features some good musicalpieces by Dylan. John Coquillon's cinematography is also very beautifuland haunting at the same time. Peckinpah, as always, was able to getperiod detail down correctly. Rudy Wurlitzer also did a fine job at thescreenplay, despite Peckinpah improving most of it himself. Coburn'sperformance was possibly his best ever. The idea of Garrett having alot of inner conflict was good. Garrett knew that he had a job to do,but just could not handle the fact it was his friend that he had tokill. Maybe he was the one who put the gun in the outhouse for Billy touse. It was also great to see the myth and actual facts of the lastdays of this incident played out.

Although this film may have a few faults (some of Dylan's music and afew of his scenes), "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid" is really worth thetime to view now that a DVD will be released on January 10th, 2006. TheTwo-Disc set will feature two versions of the film. The first one is a115 min. version editied by Peckinpah biographers Nick Redman and PaulSeydor. The second disc will feature the 122 min. version assembled in1988. According to both men, there was no final cut to "Pat Garrett."The version that Peckinpah screeded for the MGM heads was just a roughcut. Either way, the DVD will now a new generation of film lovers to beable to view how costly it is when an artist cannot complete his work.Peckinpah and editiors originally had six months to edit, but theidiots from the studio cut it down to two months. I guess the new 115minute version of the film is closer to Peckinpah's vision because ofnotes and interviews with the filmmaker's colleagues. No matter whichversion you will watch, "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid" is a sad butmagnificent Western made by one of the last great storytellers of theWestern genre.

Billy: Old Pat...Sheriff Pat Garrett. Sold out to the Sana Fe ring. Howdoes it feel?

Pat: It feels like...that times have changed.

Billy: Times maybe. Not me.

Kristofferson wrong for Billy the KidReviewed bySnoopyStyleVote: 5/10

In 1909 New Mexico, Pat Garrett (James Coburn) is shot many times. In 1881, he's riding into Old Fort Sumner to meet his friend Billy the Kid (Kris Kristofferson). He's taking over as Sheriff of Lincoln County. In five days, he has to follow orders to take on his friend. He and his men follow thru and take Billy the Kid prisoner in a gun fight.

Director Sam Peckinpah had difficulties with the studio and the initial cut was received poorly. It's eventually recut into a two hour movie. Kris Kristofferson feels wrong for Billy the Kid. He doesn't have the outlaw murderer feel and he's way too old to play twenty one. It's all wrong. Bob Dylan brings some good music but he sticks out as an actor. I keep thinking that it's Dylan and nothing else. The story is a bit slow and meandering with short bursts of bloody, outrageous violence. I wonder if the Peckinpah name is affecting people's ratings. I don't see this as terrible but it has several problems.
