Convoy
1978
**½
Director: Sam Peckinpah
Cast: Kris Kristofferson, Ali MacGraw, Ernest Borgnine, Burt Young, Madge Sinclair, Brian Davies, Seymour Cassel

A modern day cowboy movie about a handful of truckers who get in a confrontation with a bigoted sheriff. Peckipah’s modest drama was inspired by a country song and it also feels like one. It’s pompous, melodramatic and low on subtlety.
