Wonderful overview. Could not agree more. Kristofferson is one of the all time greats in my opinion.

The man might have made a few bad choices (turning down Friedkin's Sorcerer to do Convoy, as well as not doing First Blood with Hackman and Lee Marvin), but he has stood his ground even with his back to the wall and seemingly little left.

To quote Kristofferson's The Heart: They say every song is sweeter when you sing it from the heart. I won't knock it 'cause I've tried it and it's true.

He sure has lived it, and told the tales too.

BTW, does anyone agree that Kris would've been crazy interesting as Captain Willard in Apocalypse Now? Especially if you take into consideration that he was with the 82nd Airborne, and did Ranger School and took the Airborne qualifications at about the same time that the real Willard would have taken them. He also volunteered to go to Vietnam as early as 1965, but had it turned down because the Army wanted him to teach eng. lit. at West Point.
Watched Apocalypse recently and the thought struck me.

Love his 70s films, but I'd argue he's done some really great work in the last ten or fifteen years in his films with John Sayles, too.



Thanks Keith, I hope you enjoyed the article.

Good call on that much maligned film and clip but I've always seen Kris's mirror moment as a nod to Martin Sheen/Kit Carruthers' last act of James Dean hair maintenance in the final chase in Malick's Badlands, seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBVO2hBZ6vw
Not the same, granted, but definitely haunted cousins...

Thanks for this overview of Kris Kristofferson (when I hear his name I can't help but think of Travis Bickle's reply of "Whoozzat?" to Betsy in TAXI DRIVER). I always liked him in ALICE but after recently seeing CISCO PIKE and ALFREDO GARCIA I realized I wanted to see (and hear) more of his work.
