  • A multi-layered, genre-mixing documentary, REQUIEM FOR BILLY THE KID offers a unique take on the myth of the famous teenage outlaw Henry McCarty, better known pseudonymously as Billy the Kid. French director Anne Feinsilber investigates his death and sets out to discover if Sheriff Pat Garrett really did kill him in 1881. Indeed, eyewitnesses claim to have seen McCarty after the shoot-out and believe that another man is buried in his Fort Sumner grave. Produced by Jean-Jacques Beineix (DIVA) and narrated by Kris Kristofferson, the film delivers picturesque widescreen shots of New Mexico combined with readings of French poet Arthur Rimbaud, vintage 1880s photographs, and clips from Sam Peckinpah's PAT GARRETT AND BILLY THE KID. This ambitious documentary provides an affectionate take on an old Western myth and examines the blurry line between reality and nostalgic fantasy.
