A RUTHLESS PORTRAIT OF AMERICA CARRIED BY THE TRIO MONTE HELLMAN, WARREN OATES AND ROGER CORMAN
FOR THE FIRST TIME ON BLU-RAY
"A SOUTHERN WESTERN, RAW AND BESTIAL." TELERAMA
After losing his best gamecock in a challenge, Frank Mansfield takes a vow of silence until his next national championship victory. But in another unreasonable gamble, Frank is forced to part with his trailer, his car... and soon his girlfriend. Here he is now at the bottom of the slope, determined to rebuild himself to return to the top...
Directed by Monte Hellman ( Two-Lane Tarmac ) under legendary producer Roger Corman, Cockfighter is an unvarnished dive into the underworld of cockfighting. In this amoral chronicle which admirably describes the entertainment of a bored rural America, the great cinematographer Néstor Almendros ( The Harvests of the Sky ) manages to sublimate the combat scenes, distilling both dread and brutality than poetry. Favorite actor of Monte Hellman as of Sam Peckinpah, Warren Oates ( Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia ) is exceptional in this almost silent role of a magnificent loser.
