Peter, You knew about this prior to it being uploaded onto the Intrada site?  Do you have inside information?

I wish I had, Davy!

Intrada give clues about their CDs a week or two before release. Often they are quite tough but the film score nerds at their forum and also at www.filmscoremonthly.com usually guess them. With 'Coogan's Bluff' it was a much easier clue:

'One might be a late 60s crime drama starring an actor who just a few years later defined the cop of all cop roles'

Also Intrada have a strong working relationship with Universal.

Therefore many of us knew the title a week before release.

Cheers

Hopefully, scores from other Eastwood films for Universal will be released in the near future, such as 'The Beguiled' and 'Joe Kidd'

Here's an Invictus review from 'The Independent, a UK daily newspaper:

First Night: Invictus

(Rated 3/ 5 )

Sporting drama that tackles prejudice

By Mike Goodridge, Editor, 'Screen International'

Wednesday, 9 December 2009

 The prospect of a film about Nelson Mandela directed by Clint Eastwood might strike dread into the hearts of many fearing an earnest and over-reverent biopic, but Invictus is instead a surprisingly entertaining sports movie which for the most part follows the conventions of the genre.

Eastwood may have become a one-man movie factory, but his expertise in story structure and editing for maximum effect almost always delivers a considerable emotional impact. Invictus is also perhaps one of the most effective films about the end of apartheid in that the shadow of prejudice and social divide lingers over every frame. Mandela's own 30-year imprisonment is touched upon explicitly, but Eastwood knows that too much didacticism will kill the film so he doesn't dwell on it.

And while obviously steeped in nobility, Mandela, as played by the actor the premier always wanted to portray him Morgan Freeman is a playful, strategic man prepared to break ranks with his own and side with the whites on the issue of rugby. He's also alone, estranged from his wife and his family and surrounded by security teams at all times. It's hardly the picture we might have expected. Freeman, boasting an apparently flawless accent, has never been better. And Matt Damon, his hair dyed blond, his frame beefed up for the part of Francois Pienaar, is also compelling as the dedicated team captain who apparently hasn't given Mandela's predicament much thought before but who develops a personal rapport with the man.

 The film also spends time showing us Mandela's staff his chief of staff Brenda Mazibuko (played by Adjoa Andoh) and his head of security Jason Tshabalala (Tony Kgoroge), who both express bewilderment as his enthusiasm for integrating whites into the new administration.

This being a big Hollywood sports movie, however, the real focus is on the final itself, a match in which the Springboks devoted a large part of their energies to stopping Jonah Lomu. The finale, which lasts about 40 minutes, features real rugby players in the roles of the Springboks and All-Blacks including a convincing Lomu lookalike. Although the match itself wasn't the best rugby ever seen on the world stage, it's an epic battle which Eastwood turns into a classically rousing climax.

Everybody who works with Eastwood knows that he is a fast film-maker. Sometimes his speed shows and many of the interior scenes look like a cheap BBC drama. But he will win over many a cynic with the match itself which is shot and edited with all the manipulative tricks he can muster. When Pienaar is handed the World Cup by Mandela, Invictus will make grown men cry.

Regarding 'The Bridges of Madison County'

Anyway, when I heard Clint
was going to be the one to bring this to the screen, I
was deeply saddened. Please, not this one, Clint!!!
He did, and I suppose I really never gave the film any chance at all because of my feelings for the  novel.

Give the film another chance. One of his very best and in my top five Clint movies.

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Re: Favourite Clint Western
« on: November 15, 2009, 02:58:57 PM »
Maybe not his best western, but I really like 'Pale Rider'. I particularly love the scene early in the film when the young girl, Megan, preys for someone to come and help the town and then images of the preacher riding down a snowy mountain are superimposed on her image to the accompaniment of Lennie Niehaus's score. For me, one of the great Clint moments.

Clint Eastwood Shocks Fans
-------------------------------------------------------

What do they expect?

Clint is 79 and in better shape than most people his age.

However, he does set himself a pretty punishing work schedule, having filmed and completed 'Invictus' this year he is already on location on 'Hearafter'.It's great for us, the fans, but maybe taking it's toll, a little, on Clint.

The trailer looks great, I too am really looking forward to this one.
I also have the book, which I'd like to read before seeing the movie.
Does anyone know when it opens in UK?

Saw 'Changeling' a couple of weeks ago at BFI South Bank here in London.

A wonderful movie, beautifully directed by Eastwood, the pacing was just perfect.

Loved Eastwood's music as well. Nice jazz arrangements by Kyle.

For Eastwood to be directing films of this quality at the age of 78 is great and long may it continue.

Can't understand why it wasn't Oscar nominated.

Will try to catch up with 'Gran Torino' this week.

I've been told a couple of times now that "The Human Factor" is a working title.

Sometimes the working title sticks.



I think the title of the book the is based on, 'Playing The Enemy' would be as good a title as any.

Eastwood News / Re: Eastwood season at London's NFT ....
« on: August 17, 2008, 02:09:41 AM »
Thanks KC for your welcome. Will be picking up the season later in the month when I return to London stqrting with Sudden Impact

Can't get over the audience reaction to The Beguiled. At the end of the film nobody moved just sat in complete silence shocked by the ending of the movie.

I saw Eastwood interviewed at the NFT in August 1995 after a showing of Bridges of Madison County. :) However missed the interview in September 2003 with Mystic River as I was away when tickets went on sale  :'(

I saw ten of the films in 6 days as I am now away on holiday in Corsica for two weeks. Really enjoyed The Beguiled and The Dollar movies; Have not seen those for a while.

Hopefully Clint will be present for an interview in September!
