    Alfredo Garcia is an extremely dark picture which I would claim is a man's journey through Purgatory on a quest for quick redemption, a journey that damns him even more. The portrait of an empoverished Mexico is almost hallucinatory (especially the bright day-for-night scenes), at once beautiful and decrepit. Pictures of landscapes and various locations are pasted to every wall, an impossible escape. Warren Oates plays the doomed hero of this buddy movie in which the buddy in question is a disembodied head, and there's even a scene where Oates rises from the grave. It all ends in a shoot-out in God's house. 1 year 11 months ago
