Review by Library Journal Review
Three years after his masterly The Wild Bunch and following his humorous The Ballad of Cable Hogue, Sam -Peckinpah delved into man's innate capacity for violence when push comes to shove. Dustin Hoffman turns scarily territorial as a meek mathematician forced to protect his rural English home and the village naif he is harboring from local hooligans hellbent on vigilante justice. With its obscure title referring to ceremonial objects used for religious sacrifices in ancient China, the controversial drama benefits from a 4K restoration and a tidy bunch of extras.
