The pedigree of the 1966 Mexican revenge Western Time To Die cannot be denied: It comes from an original story by legendary Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez, it features dialogue by iconic Mexican writer Carlos Fuentes, and it marked the directorial debut of 21-year-old Mexican filmmaker Arturo Ripstein, who had previously worked as an assistant to Luis Buñuel on his 1962 film The Exterminating Angel.

Fresh from serving eighteen years in jail for shooting a man in self-defense, Juan Sayago (Jorge Martinez de Hoyos, The Magnificent Seven) comes back to his hometown to start life anew and reunite with old flame Mariana (Marga López). However, the two sons of the man he killed, consumed by an overwhelming thirst for revenge, have been anxiously awaiting his return…

Hailed by the critics as a near-classic, Time To Die is presented here on Blu-ray for the very first time in a pristine 2K restoration with a handful of bonus features, including the following:

  • Video Introduction by director Alex Cox (Repo Man)
  • Commentary by director Arturo Ripstein and actor Enrique Rocha
  • New essay by Carlos A. Gutiérrez, co-founder of Cinema Tropical
