Ride the High Country

Sam Peckinpah was 36 years old when he made Ride the High Country, but it feels like the work of a man who’s somewhat farther along in years. That’s not because the film speaks so knowingly about the difficulties of aging (though it does that in spades), but because of  ...

Like its predecessor, 1996's brilliant La Promesse, it details the squalid events in the life of an impoverished  ...
