          AKA23, Well, the thing with Tightrope was @ the time I saw it I was rapidly losing interest in most of Eastwood's movies that followed ( Though Alcatraz was a good flick) after TOJWales. Tightrope was a great departure, but mostly I was thrilled not to see Sondra Locke in the movie. I detested Sudden Impact ( for the Locke reason) and thought the Dirty Harry character had become ridiculous and embarrassingly like a comic book. Regardless, Eastwood's Wes Block was a departure as a flawed and damaged person. I thought Eastwood finally was doing a role that would be taken serious. Even after all these years his performance is still one of my faves. It's a dark movie,but I always felt Eastwood didn't do enough of those type roles @ the time and Bujold was always an interesting actress. I once read Susan Saradon turned down Bujold's role.... Anyhow, Rebecca Perle cancels out Locke any day...........

Earlier this month, Eastwood's long-time editor, Joel Cox, gave a wide ranging interview on editing. The whole interview is worth reading, but in it, he broke some pretty big news, and that is that he will be back as editor for Clint's "next film." So, I think that means that he will be returning as editor on "The Mule." If this ends up happening, it will be the first film he has edited for Eastwood since "American Sniper" in 2014.

Thanks for contributing your thoughts to this discussion, Doug. I like your choices! I too think Eastwood's performance is underrated in "The Bridges of Madison County," which is why that was one of the three that I chose myself. I think some people felt that he wasn't a good fit for the role because it was too far outside the norms of the tpes of characters that he's known for, so it seems like Clint sometimes can't win. He does something outside of the box that stretches his acting muscles, but because people aren't used to seeing him that way, they don't appreciate the achievement in the performance.

I set up the question this way on purpose, since if someone said that they didn't think Eastwood was a good director, then there isn't much hope that they'd be open minded enough to consider him a good actor. But someone who recognizes that he is in fact a good director may be persuaded to consider a different perspective on him as an actor if shown the way.

HULLFISH: One of your old assistants cut Clintís last movie, The 15:17 to Paris.

COX: Yes, Blu Murray. Iíll tell you what happened here: after American Sniper, Clint wanted to take some time off. I took another job and then when he started to do Sully, I was already working on another film. Then I was doing this film and he started 15:17 to Paris.

For Blu, it was a great opportunity. He learned a lot from me and now heís off doing his own thing. I am going to be back editing with Clint on his next picture. I like working for Clint. After 40 years, Iíd say Clint and I are soulmates.  I could look at things and know exactly what he was going for. That man knows every scene, how itís going to be in his mind.

This guy is truly amazing. His youtube channel consists of these mind-blowing covers of Beatles songs, and this one is certainly the most impressive:

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/ZzJbFJkfZ6I" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/ZzJbFJkfZ6I</a>

But equally outstanding is this cover of "Dig a Pony," which is a song I've always liked a lot, but now I just love it. It's just a cover of the lead and rhythm guitars (originally played Harrison and Lennon respectively), and in the Beatles recording you can't hear the lead guitar all that well, so hearing it like this has just opened my eyes to this song. If you listen to it, make sure to read his description. He's so exact with his covers.

He does a similar cover of Get Back that's great too, and it's notable for being one of the few Beatles songs where John plays the lead guitar part.

Has anyone else seen Isle of Dogs yet? I thought it was excellent. Took my five-year-daughter a couple of weeks ago and she loved it too. In fact tonight she was talking about it. I would probably rank it near the bottom of Wes Anderson's films, but that's only because I love all his films so much. And even if you don't care for Anderson's style, you might still like this one.
