For the record, this review pertains to the Pegasus Entertainment release.
This is a wonderful movie and I encourage anyone with an interest in alternative Westerns, existentialist films or American independent cinema (or which Monet Hellman was a leading figure), or anyone who's a fan of the great Warren Oates, to see it as soon as possible.
However, be wary of the Pegasus Entertainment release. The film is in widescreen but it is not anamorphic and the picture quality is pretty dire. One need only look at the front cover to get some idea of this distributor's level of respect for the films it releases. Jack Nicholson is pretty short and fairly lithe, right? Well, not according to the front of this DVD, which has his face carelessly plopped on top of a broad, stocky body which has itself been careless plopped against a Western background. Think that's funny? On the back on the DVD is the picture from which they removed his face, and you'll notice that his body is facing in a different direction, which explains why he appears to have no neck on the front. For the record, I have no idea who the other person on the front is meant to be, but he sure ain't in the film.
This "artwork" serves as a pretty apt metaphor for the way Pegasus Entertainment have treated the film. I have also seen their release of Vengeance Valley, which is equally dreadful.
The good news is that there exists a DVD release from Cinema Club (with a real picture of Nicholson on the front) which is anamorphic and is infinitely superior in quality. So be sure to pick that one up.
