Sam Peckinpah
Guy Lochhead, 30/08/10
American filmmaker. He is best known for ‘The Wild Bunch’ and ‘Straw Dogs’, and his films are characterised by their violence. He was a notoriously difficult director whose personality had become more confrontational after years of alcohol and drug abuse. Peckinpah’s films might be worth including – the violence usually comes as a reaction to corruption and injustice – but Peckinpah’s personality excludes them.
