The Outlaw Josey Wales
...an army of one.
After avenging his family's brutal murder, Wales is pursued by a pack of soldiers. He prefers to travel alone, but ragtag outcasts are drawn to him - and Wales can't bring himself to leave them unprotected.
Are you gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?
- Josey Wales
'An Army of One' as the poster proclaims, all roads seem to point towards this man Josey Wales caught in the midst of trying to avenge his wife and son. The Civil War is the backdrop for this story, one that begins in turmoil in some sort of nightmare that Josey's never likely to leave behind; and before the title credits even begin Eastwood's established this as a tense and incredibly atmospheric revisionist western. After being quite impressed by White Hunter Black Heart I realised that I had sadly seen very few of Eastwood's directorial efforts. The Outlaw Josey Wales is one of his earlier ones and it's…
Unforgiven is generally regarded as director Clint Eastwood's Western masterpiece. Rightly scooping a host of awards, it reinvigorated a genre that had saw little in the way of commercial or critic success in the previous couple of decades. For me though Eastwood's finest directorial achievement in the genre was back in 1976, and the troubled shoot that delivered one of the greatest Westerns of all time, The Outlaw Josey Wales.
A revisionist Western that sees a family man drawn into a revenge plot after the murder of his wife and children, there's more to this film that just a tale of retribution. Eastwood's Josey Wales joins The Confederacy following Captain Terrill's Redlegs (Pro-Union) attack on his farm. He becomes a…
4. A film about War! of: Scavenger Hunt #3
A good post Civil War Western directed and starring Clint Eastwood with epic showdowns, interesting fun characters, Clint violently killing all the bad guys, It follows a difference path from most revenge films. Its nicely shot, the shoot outs were magnificent, the film had good humor and the character Chief Dan George was fantastic. Clint's character Josey Wales story from farmer to outlaw was underdeveloped. the plot does gets repetitive. The end scene is epic. Good action adventure that's worth the ride.
Josey Wales sure likes to spit tobacco juice on people and creatures.
Deeply flawed in some ways, perhaps as a reflection of Eastwood's own uncertainty over subverting his screen persona, but still ultimately a very beautiful film. Probably Eastwood's most overtly Ford-inspired work; the film constantly nods towards Stagecoach & The Searchers, this is a film about transformation, about reconciling ones self with the cruelty of the universe.
"Seems like we can't trust the white man," says Josey early on in the film. This line signifies both his complete disassociation with the "civilized world," and the beginning of the birth of a new family. One of the most beautiful scenes in Eastwood is the moment where this group of outcasts at last finds the ranch house they've been looking for, bathed in the…
The Outlaw Josey Wales directed and starring Clint Eastwood.
A film that starts out Eastwood as Josey Wales is a loner not wanting to surrender to the union army shortly after the Civil War and after his family has been killed by Union on the family farm.
Josey soon turns to revenge and takes out a platoon of the army with their own Gatling gun.
Josey meets Lone Watie soon after and after some troubles befriends him and become partners in a sense, in riding around as a wanted fugitive they meet up with some folks traveling through to find settlement in Texas and trouble once again finds them.
The Outlaw Josey Wales is another crowning achievement from the great Clint Eastwood
Hungover Saturday movie marathon commences with The Outlaw Josie Wales, one of my favorite westerns. Second viewing was definitely different from the first. There are some hilarious moments in between the sobering journey Josie is taking to exact revenge on his family's killer. Such a fun, violent, romp through the west.
Time to revisit this old classic. Not seen this for over 20 years. A very cold-hearted western that reflects the hardship of war. It looks at how war affects the different elements of society. A film that will stand the test of time.
One of Clint's all-time best roles.
Definitely in the Top 3.
Everything is great about this film.
One of the movies that made Clint a legend.
Eastwood goes full-out cowboy in the 2nd Western film he directed. And while High Plains Drifter swept me straight off my feet, this one left me a little underwhelmed, occasionally bored, but often amused by the occasional character or situation. This is the story of a farmer whose wife and child are murdered in the midst of the Civil War, causing him to go on a revenge streak that has him switch sides more than once and team up with some unlikely Indians.
While the opening 30 or 40 minutes are whip-fizz-bang, the film slows down considerably from there, morphing into more of a typical Western with the occasional small twist here or there. An Indian chief and a younger…
Classic movie. If you like westerns, good acting, interesting characters, or any clint eastwood movie, I would definitely recommend.
Muuuuum, Josey's spitting on the dog again.

̂̂ ̂̂ ̂̂ ̂̂ death movie!
A clever directorial turn by Eastwood who was still finding his footing behind the camera. Though not the most nuanced and accomplished of westerns, it does have striking moments and plays on the tropes with poise.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
