This is the second Clint Eastwood movie I've watched this week.
I'm happy with this.
Unforgiven s a film that could only have been made by Clint Eastwood.
A natural successor to High Plains Drifter that plays around with similar themes of regret, the effect of violence & a meditation on the director's career.
It's hard to tell which film pack's the toughest punch. High Plains Drifter is certainly a mean and mystifying cinematic experience but Unforgiven is simply beautiful to…
Guión magnífico. Aunque bueno... es el tío que escribió "Blade Runner" así que... poco no se puede esperar.
Actores... ¡y personajes! sublimes. Pero todos. Y cuando digo todos es todos.
Fotografía indescriptible. Ya solo viendo el primer plano se te pone la piel de gallina.
Pero lo que más me ha sorprendido esta vez de éste mega film son sus diálogos. Son tan puros, tan magníficos, tan...
En fin, suerte que en el mundo hay películas como esta que están aquí para enseñarnos un poco de cine a todos y cada uno de nosotros.
A tour de force of a film that acts as a perfect testimonial to sign off not only the incredible work Clint Eastwood has done in the genre over his grand career, but to westerns as a whole. A triumphant, mature narrative, beautifully edited and scored and a stellar cast of actors shape this success story and what is, simply put, a masterpiece of cinema.
Trivia: It took Clint Eastwood several years to actually get round to reading the script as his script reader had initially told him that it wasn't very good - I'm glad it did take him a while, since he made this film at just the right time in his career. I caught this on AMC last night (commercials be damned) and not only has it aged well, but I found it to be timeless viewing for a viewer that has aged along with it. It still holds up and also lends itself to a deeper understanding of its themes over time.
Perfect in every way.
"It's a helluva thing killin' a man. You take away everything he's ever had and everything he's ever gonna have."
Clint's masterpiece of Western Cinema, to be sure.
Rewatching it this time after having watched all of Clint's films in my own personal Clint Eastwood Film Festival, really wrapped up Clint's career in the Western. Yes, he has gone on to other films and continues to direct as well... but this was it. This was his career. All wrapped up in a beautifully filmed Western Classic.
No western better.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Unforgiven personifies the end of the Old West, and specifically in Eastwood's Will Munny as well as himself, a relic of Leone's Spaghetti trilogy. That Eastwood went under several aliases but was always calm, collected, deadly with the draw and ruggedly handsome. Here he is ragged and elderly; he tends to pigs, not to bounties, misfires from a few paces on a still tin can, and can barely mount his horse without a decent struggle. That vehicle in itself is…
Unforgiven is unquestionably Clint Eastwood's greatest achievement as a director of motion pictures and one of his finest performances.
"I ain't like that no more."
Wild West gunslinger William Munny (Clint Eastwood) comes out of retirement and teams up with his old partner Ned (Morgan Freeman) for one last job.
This 1992 film won four Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director for Eastwood and is so much more than just a western. Indeed, after years of tutelage under Spaghetti Western supremo Sergio Leone, Eastwood had finally perfected his directing craft and in Unforgiven delivers what almost amounts to…
