Doug Casey on the Silver Screen, by Doug Casey, Louis James, 17 Feb 2010
Brief reviews of many movies and some TV series
L: ... What other Westerns are among your favorite movies?
Doug: Well, there's no question that my favorite Western ... is The Wild Bunch ... But there are a lot of other Westerns that fall into the great category ... Hombre, with Paul Newman, is fantastic–definitely one of the best ones. It, like The Wild Bunch, has great Mexican bandits. Incidentally, the portrayal of Mexican bandits in movies is almost a subgenre in its own right.
