General Discussion / The films of Clint Eastwood as director - ranked
« on: February 28, 2020, 09:58:15 AM »
We all love lists and contributing to them, don't we?

Came across this article from Little White Lies, the film magazine, published shortly after the release of Sully in 2016.
It ranks and comments on Clint's  (then) 35 films as a director.
There are some familiar contenders near the top, but some intriguing inclusions as well.
Here is the top 10 as ranked by LWL.

1. Unforgiven
2. Bronco Billy
3. High Plains Drifter
4. Breezy
5. The Outlaw Jose Wales
6. A Perfect World
7. American Sniper
8. Bird
9. Letters from Iwo Jima
10. Sully

What are your thoughts.....do you agree/disagree
How would you rank them?
Have a read to whet your appetite.....

Have seen Richard Jewell twice since it opened in the UK......
Elegiac, character driven, organically emotional  yet restrained,  beautifully acted and with a powerful payoff this is Eastwood with his trademark depth.
This has to be one of the best cast Eastwood films.....all bring their A game to produce wonderful interaction and texture, wit and emotional wallop. ....
It is a chamber piece full of restraint, shot through with pathos and loss and yet it is a lovely,  life affirming  tale of friendship and family and mutual respect.
As with Million Dollar Baby, it's ultimately  a story of three human beings, that's all.
But  that's surely more than enough.
Eastwood panache ! .....

Incidentally,  I notice Richard Jewell has achieved "fresh" status on Rotten  Tomatoes
Q.E.D.

Another accolade for Paul Walter Hauser - from the Hollywood Critics Association - for "his career-defining
performance as Richard Jewell. "

Intriguing. ......
I understood the film was based on a Vanity Fair article - "American Nightmare : The Ballad of Richard Jewell ", by Marie Brenner, published in February 1997, from which Billy Ray wrote the screenplay.
I am not aware of a novel ?
