    Unforgiven is a very well done film, to say the least. It is certainly deserving of the recognition it gets, and got. I'm glad that this movie won Best Picture. Clint Eastwood is obviously well known for his portrayal of cowboys back when Westerns owned the air waves. I love how he came back in the early 90's to show them he hadn't lost his touch with a Schofield or Henry Repeater. He was perfect, and played the role exactly…

    Unforgiven


    "It's a hell of a thing killin' a man. You take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have." - William Munny

    I had forgotten just what an amazing film Unforgiven is. I saw it when it was released in 1992 and once again, recently, after my local art house put on a repertory western series. They played The Searchers, Once Upon a Time in the West, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Wild Bunch and…

    Clint Eastwood delivers what is probably his most remarkable acting performance in Unforgiven, a 1992 film he also directed and produced that became one of the greatest Westerns of all time and one of his biggest accomplishments as a filmmaker. This gritty and riveting tale explores the moral implications of violence and revenge in a heart-wrenching and poignant way.

    With a cast that also included Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman, Richard Harris, and Jaimz Woolvett, Unforgiven is a profoundly human and powerful film that is one of my favorites of Eastwood's and from the early 1990s.

    Clint Eastwood’s final western (to date) is a film that isn’t quite the antithesis of the western as many people describe. After all, he built a career out of playing flawed anti-heroes. It is however a film that expertly captures the duality of each character and highlights the old saying; you can change your character, you can’t change your nature.

    Eastwood is William Munney (who could easily be the older version of almost any of his western characters he portrayed),…

    'Unforgiven' is a simple film about a simple man who wants to keep his new, simple way of life. It unapologetically uses all the old cliches of the western genre, but infuses them with a sense of fatigue that totally changes the tone. It mourns for the death of the classic western almost as much as Eastwood's character mourns for his dead wife.

    I have to admit that I am not sure what the ending is trying to say... It…

    This isn't one of those rosy-cheeked, enthusiastic westerns of the far past, oh no. This is one of those gritty, cynical, "realistic" westerns. Of the slightly more recent but still pretty long ago past. Subversiveeeeeee.

    An old gunman rejects retirement for one last job as he enlists the help of his old partner, and someone new, who is much younger than him. This movie was not for me, I love the good, the bad and the ugly but this western was not for me.

    I'm not going to lie, I expected this to be a lot better than it was. Perhaps it was because my expectations were so high that i didn't enjoy this movie as much as i feel i should have done.

    There was nothing wrong with the movie, it was funny, entertaining, had a great cast and thrilled throughout. However, for some reason it didn't seem as amazing to me. It didn't quite meet the same level as the Dollars Troligy and for that my enjoyment of the movie suffered.

    Not a bad movie, however, not a great one either.

    AKA "Much Ado About a Tiny Pecker."

    Using very simple shots, basic action, but lofty personalities, Eastwood, in the very opening scene, perfectly depicts the setting, time, place, general conflict and (hardest of all) the values of the era with a remarkable economy. Manhood is valued over everything else; women are essential, but never appreciated; no one is above the law, no matter how awful the law is. As the movie goes on countless Western tropes are put to task;…
