You can kill them in the classic style

We went to see a double feature of Sam Peckinpah's Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia and Ride the High Country. In between the two features they had a Q&A session with David Weddle (Peckinpah biographer), Gordon Dawson (writer/producer of Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia), and Mariette Hartley (female lead of Ride the High Country).

Towards the end of Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, Bennie brings la cabeza de Alfredo Garcia to the men who will pay him ten thousand dollars for it. So far in the course of getting the head about a dozen people have been killed. One of the men says, "Helluva job, Bennie."

This line gets a different audience response today than it probably did before 2005.

...I think. Or that could just be me?
