    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 viscous
    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…

    Eastwood sabía que el género se moría y decidió tallarle una lápida.

    [fuera de broma, ¿qué gran western ha habido posterior a Unforgiven? Se me ocurre The Assassination of Jesse James... O el remake de True Grit tal vez. Ah, ¡The Proposition!]

    This movie shows that Eastwood is a brilliant director and that he really knows his westerns.
    It takes your romanticized image of the Wild West that you've grown fond to over the years, and it twists it until it gets this real, down and dirty version if it. It takes all these colorful Blondies and Tucos and strips them down to their bones, to these regulars folks just making ends meet . It takes the mythical gunfights and breaks the…

    El género western siempre me ha gustado, desde que mi abuelo me puso Por un puñado de dólares cuando yo era un moco, pero a decir verdad peca de irrealismo en muchos sentidos. Manejar un revólver no tiene que ser tarea fácil, y eso de matar a veinte hombres de una sentada y quedarse tan pancho no tiene mucho de veraz, por muy forajido que se sea (cuánto daño ha hecho el Red Dead Redemption...); pero esta película creo que…

    I don't get on with westerns. By the time I came to the genre, I had spent my entire life consuming it through osmosis via its omnipresence in the world of comedy and parody.

    Unforgiven is, without doubt, the best western I've ever seen. It feels like a eulogy to the genre that waves it a fond farewell, as Scream did with the slasher film.

    It's a film that embraces conventions, whilst also gently subverting them. It focuses on the…

    Lírico, sem soar afetado; objetivo, sem mostrar-se simplório; complexo, sem apelar para paradoxismos; 'Os Imperdoáveis' é considerado como o articulador do faroeste revionista, mas sua importância perpassa o gênero, pois o filme conduzido e estrelado por Clint Eastwood e escrito por David Webb Peoples narra um causo com tom de cotidiano e lenda, entre o crível e o fabulesco. Recheada de personagens fortes e interessantes e contando com um elenco de primeiro nível que os tornam vivos - além de…
