    Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    "Apocalyptic neo-western about two gangsters, a town full of crazy people and Jesus…"

Set in a bleak and empty apocalyptic world (or perhaps this is just an average day in Wallonia), Les Premiers, Les Derniers is definitely a great and touching movie, though its story is somewhat of a mystery to me. Recommended if you like westerns, apocalypse movies or both

    As the narration of the trailer of this movie starts: "They were four outcasts".

    This movie has a story that I can't help but tell in its entirety. Four of the Apocalypse starts off in a small town in Utah. Stubby Preston, a travelling gambler, is locked up in jail on arrival by the small town's corrupt sheriff. There he meets his soon to be fire-forged friends. Bunny, a pregnant prostitute, Clem the town's alcoholic vagrant, and Bud, a gentle…
