The Ballad of Cable Hogue

Posted by martinteller on July 10, 2009

Oh boy, more Peckinpah.  But while his other films have been merely underwhelming, this one is downright painful.  Painfully stupid.  Dumb, dumb, dumb gags.  There are moments when it’s just a “Yakety Sax” away from being a Benny Hill skit.  When the movie isn’t obnoxious, it’s not too bad, but something obnoxious happens about every 3 minutes.  The songs are awful, and I’ve never really cared much for Jason Robards, either.  I did kind of like the ending (except for the knowing “golly gee horseless carriages!” shit) but it was far too little, and far too late.  Rating: 3
