See this film: The Wild Bunch @ the Coolidge

There are a handful of movies from the '60s that filmmakers keep trying to copy yet never quite capture the electric thrill of the original. Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch (1969) is one of them, and if within five minutes of the opening shootout you don't recognize a turning point in the history of film, there's no hope for you. A gang of outlaws tries to deliver a cache of weapons to one of the renegade armies fighting in the Mexican Revolution while avoiding the pursuit of a posse led by a turncoat member. Ernest Borgnine's crazy laugh at the end sums up the nature of existence just about as well as anything else in the movies. See it in the original director's cut on the big screen at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | Monday, August 20 @ 7 pm | $9; $6 seniors | 617.734. 2501 or
