    I wasn't sure if he still had it in him, but Clint Eastwood's last western my favorite western of the genre. The performances are great, including established actors Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, and Gene Hackman, bring their all. and the story is very interesting. This is not your standard "shoot em up" typical western, this film gets into the psychology of what it's like to actually kill a man. The violence is justified, and we see its effects on not…

    This review reportedly contains 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…

    Eastwood's masterpiece.

    I've seen Unforgiven many times. This time round what occurred to me, aside from the cinematography, the beautifully played shades of morality and four great actors putting in their best was the lighting and editing.

    So much of the film takes place in dingy half-lit surroundings - every flickering light and shadow is perfect. When the action comes you can follow its every move and every hesitation. Even the poster is wonderful.

    As great as I remembered from watching it before. The story builds slowly, but beautifully as you learn about Munny's past and see his great relationship with Ned. The kills in this film aren't stylish or "awesome" but really ugly and horrific (at least until the end, but even then it's more clinical than stylish). When Munny walks into Greely's with that shotgun I was on the edge of my seat giving my full attention to every single word he said. Such a fantastic film.

    I love this movie and have ever since I saw it on its original theatrical run. I was never a fan of the Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns. I preferred westerns like High Plains Drifter (which is my all-time favorite, just ahead of Unforgiven) that do something more with the genre.

    Much has been said about Unforgiven as a deconstruction of the western, but I think it's also an exploration of personal narratives and identity. Are we the stories we tell…

    "... a known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious
    and intemperate disposition."

    A film that knows the moral and emotional weight of its violence.

    One of the best anti-hero stories ever told with an amazing final shootout.

    A meditation on how and why one man might deal out death to another. Filled to the brim with brilliant performances.

    After a bounty is placed on two men who cut up a hooker, former outlaw William Munny (Clint Eastwood) reluctantly returns to killing in order to provide for his family. That's the surface level plot, and it does work well, but what elevates Unforgiven to masterpiece status is the way it explores it's ideas. Eastwood is interested in exploring not only how the legends of the West were formed, but also why we're so fascinated by these myths in the…
