The Hunting Party

The Hunting Party Directed by Don Medford Starring Gene Hackman (1971)
 A brutal American western that has a top shelf cast. Watch Gene Hackman act like a vicious bastard and burn a Chinese hooker. Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen) plays a female punching bag and is repeatedly raped and passed around. She is abducted by Oliver Reed’s band of killer mercenaries as bate for Hackman (who plays an impotent creep who cares very little for his captured wife). Gene Hackman plays sadistic very well in the grand tradition of 70's sleaze and grit with such roles as Prime Cut, French Connection and to a certain extent Night Moves. Highly entertaining with a driving soundtrack. This western is like an American Euro one since it's brutality is so vile. She takes a high powered slug to the pudendum (taken from the DR catalog). Watch it here

Check out this great music video, score by Riz Ortolani.
