    I stumbled across Paul Seydor’s book, The Authentic Death and Contentious Afterlife of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (2015), while passing time between BFI screenings. Since it was 35 quid, I bided my time and purchased it from the morally reprehensible tax-avoiding online behemoth , which was selling it for just £16. The blurb promised an examination of Peckinpah’s final Western that would trace a line from verifiable fact through a deluge of fiction (beginning with Pat Garrett’s own gho [...]

    Paul Seydor's new book on Sam Peckinpah's last western is the answer to the prayers of so many of us devotees who have for decades analyzed, bickered about and praised as an existential masterpiece the film, "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid," while becoming aware of various cuts, none of them authoritarian.

    I've seen two versions of "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid" over the years. It is not my favorite Sam Peckinpah film, but I remembered liking Seydor's earlier book on Peckinpah's Westerns, so I tried this one.It is a very good, very passionate book that explores Peckinpah's long relationship with the Billy the Kid story, from the late Fifties, when he wrote the first version of the movie that became Marlon Brando's "One Eyed Jacks," to the filming of "PG & BK" to the 2005 DVD release of the mo [...]

    The fascinating story of the development, making, and subsequent critical reaction to, one of the greatest western films of all time. How can a film be considered a masterpiece when it doesn't even exist in a definitive finished form? Well it's a long complicated story and Paul Seydor does a great job of telling it. A must for Peckinpah fans and anyone who enjoys good critical writing.
