    A rare showing of Sam Peckinpah's violent thriller on Channel 4 late night tomorrow 12.35am (or early Sunday morning if you prefer). The lovely Susan George, the excellent Peter Vaughn and the great TP Mckenna, as well of course as Dustin Hoffman as Susan's mild mannered husband. One to watch or record if you've not seen it before.

    Classic movie, probably shown to coincide with the awful remake.

    I haven't seen the remake, nor do I intend to. The original sure is a classic. Terrific film.

    That final assault was just unnecessary and painful. The bagpipes were painful to the ears and were an unnecessary assault on the senses

    I was surprised that the movie ends with Henry Niles not being brought to justice. Have I missed something or some deep point?
