This movie was a recommendation from one of our readers. They also said it was Takeshi Kitano’s favorite movie. Whether or not that’s true, I don’t know. Anyway, let me tell you about this movie. The plot is simple. Girl gets pregnant and her father wants the baby’s dad dead. Though to find out who the baby’s dad is, the girl’s father snaps her arm because she won’t talk. This happened in the first 5 minutes so I knew it was going to be a good movie.

yay guns!

So the hunt is on for the father, dead or alive. The movie takes place in mostly rural parts of Mexico with some beautiful scenery shots. Without going into detail, a bartender and his hooker of a girlfriend go on a quest to find the guy and collect the bounty, who she claims is already dead.

moar shootin'

There are a couple surprises I won’t divulge while they are on their quest. But they do find the grave of the guy they are looking for. A shootout or two later the head is returned to El Jefe at the Mexican ranch in return for the money, but that wasn’t enough. Now we’ve got to kill the Mexican gang boss. Lordy. This is pretty wtf for the time period, and overall a very good movie. If you get the chance, give it a watch, it’s worth it.
