Blows away stereotypes of both McQueen and Peckinpah,
This review is from: Junior Bonner (DVD)
I was looking forward to seeing this film because of Steve , having just seen him in 'The Getaway' , also directed by Sam Peckinpah . The two films could not be more different .
In Junior Bonner the actors , atmosphere , characters , cinematography and script are all top notch . For those who think of Bullitt when they think of Steve and the Wild Bunch when they think of Sam Peckinpah , this film is something very special and a wonderful surprise - like discovering buried treasure . It's that good .
A bargain price DVD , in no way reflecting the film's high quality .
