Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid - on the big screen again

This month offers a rare chance to see a great Dylan film on the big screen again. The National Film Theatre at London’s BFI is showing Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid on Sun 18, Thurs 22 and Sun 25 Jan, as part of its Sam Peckinpah season.

“Now re-edited in close accord with Peckinpah’s original intentions”, so presumably this is the 1988, not the messed-up 1973, release.

Great movie, great sound-track, great director, great art-house cinema.
