Rancho Deluxe

Jeff Bridges and Sam Waterston are a couple of modern-day cattle thieves. Written by Tom McGuane, directed by Frank Perry and also starring Harry Dean Stanton and Slim Pickens.

Quirky, I guess, is the best word to describe this film, which really belongs to McGuane. It's not often a writer gets to transfer his personal vision onto film as completely as this. It could probably only have been made in the 70s, before the filmmaking by committee era we now live in. Also: where's the Slim Pickens of our generation?!
