Former native.  I?d see lakefront and Grant Park.  South side tends to be less crowded at the lake.  Museums.  Navy Pier just to get out far on the Lake.  Chgo pizza places - I like Aurelio?s Pizza? they have one location on Michigan Ave.  I?m also partial to Cafe Babareeba on Halsted.  Little Italy has good food places.  Go out onto The Skydeck at Willis (fka Sears) Tower.  Make sure to avoid Chgo Marathon soon downtown. 

Quick places to visit and std sites for tourists, except Aurelio?s.


AKA23 I'd love to hear ..I have no plans on seeing the movie. Like you as I said before I didnt care for the trailer as well....

I thought the same - did not care for the trailer and it seemed to make the movie more sappy than it turned out to be.  I was pleasantly surprised.  It was nice to see Eastwood in front of the camera, in a cowboy hat, on a horse and pointing a gun at someone.  It reminded me how much his acting presence has been missed and, as someone said here earlier, most likely his last acting role.  I enjoyed it more than The Mule or Trouble With The Curve.

Saw the movie today at 12:30 and a pretty decent crowd of around 25 people (all who appeared older than me!).  (One interesting note in the theater lobby, a film-goer was wearing a big brown poncho).

As for the film itself, I liked it a lot and it seem to grow on me as the movie went on.  Pretty much agree with most of what Antonis posted earlier.  Great score/music and cinematography.  Clint seems to love these stories about adult/kid learning life lessons thru each other.  Can't help but marvel at Clint at 91 riding horses and getting down easily to look under a car.  The easy-going story and tone kept reminding me of Honkytonk Man.

Agreed.  I enjoyed it and was nice to see him in a cowboy hat, on a horse, and point a gun at someone.

Just came back from the theater.
I originally wanted to post at the no spoilers thread but then I thought that there are no spoilers to reveal.
The whole movie is on the trailer.
The film has great cinematography, believable characters & above average acting.Great score also.
The main fact is that nothing really happens on screen. A road movie with no drama just Clint walking or driving around for a couple of hours while giving lessons of life & humanity to his companion (Rafo is played better than Gran Torino's Thao apparently).
That's fine for us members of the board but not friendly for the average moviegoer.
Overall a slow paced road movie and an interesting addition to Mr Eastwood's filmography,who seems to expand his legacy as far as his ageing allows.
4/5 for me.

I don?t think the whole movie was in the clips.  I was pleasantly surprised they did not falsely advertise this as an action movie by showing Eastwood pointing a gun threatenly.  The Mule made that mistake by showing cop raids and him slowly looking into the camera all bloody and seems to advertise a movie it wasn?t.

I saw it on HBO Max and I have to say I thought it was good.  Better than The Mike and definitely better than Trouble With the Curve.  I thought Eastwood?s acting was better than The Mule and the kid was better than the kid in Gran Torino.

Reviewers seem to compare this to other Eastwood films, the younger, tougher Eastwood.  Just review it as it is, a drama where the character finds some things about himself along the way.  I thought it was a well done story and enjoyed it. 

Some of the scenes were really nice looking, good vista shots, and his direction was well done.

Clint did an interview with Parade:

In that interview, he doesn?t seem to deny he was in Alfred Hitchcock Presents Tv series?. That was a question in another thread.

I think Benjamin Bratt would be good.  Got the silent tough guy look and I think he can pull the slow anger off.

HBO Max has a list of some upcoming theatrical/HBO Max releases, and Cry Macho isn't currently listed in that. They do list a movie coming out September 10 and another October 1. I don't think that's an official thing, of course, but I do wonder if the date could be changed since it's not listed there.

This link from HBO max has it listed on Sept 17:

Clink on the link and then scroll down to Sept 17.

Saw for the first time Cry Macho included in the advertisements for the HBO Max simultaneous release plan.  They showed a clip of the movie, the scene where Eastwood tips his hat (the pic that was shown in this thread).
