The Retrospettiva’s Book dedicate to Sam Perckinpah



Classified in thematic areas which reunite his movies according to four different periods from first feature to death in 1983 – the Sam Peckinpah retrospective issue published from Capricci resumes the author’s career focusing on his most famous masterpieces as long as the less known movies, still capable of explaining the greatness of this iconoclastic director.

Redacted by important film critics like Emmanuel Burdeau and Chris Fujiwara, this essays collection also contains some interviews and allows a refreshing look at Sam Peckinpah’s work, proving that his cinema is always totally present, incapable of aging because it keeps talking about America’s endemic contradictions.
