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.....

A very good, solid film.. Perhaps the kind of film I'd be happy to see sandwiched between more daring, fictional dramas from Clint.
 
I agree with a lot of the comments above . The acting from everyone is superb. Once again Clint gets masterful performances from his cast, it's an enjoyable thought provoking piece..

I saw this last weekend was very impressed. Always good to go into a film with zero expectations. Agree with what Gant said above and can't add much more than what has already been said.

What I did notice were two scenes with a TV on in the background. One was of the film, The Sands Of Iwo Jima, starring one of America's hero's of the 20th century (onscreen at least) John Wayne. And one with Jimmy Stewart. Not only a hero onscreen but a real life WWII hero. I didn't see any credit in the final credits so I'm not sure what film it was but it clicked with me straight away how Clint juxaposed Richard Jewell with these other American heroes. Only a little thing some people may have missed but I thought it was extremely well done.

Very excited to report that I now have a copy of this book!

It took ages for one to come up for sale anywhere (aside from one on eBay @ £350!) but patience and perseverance paid off. The book came from America and after an anxious 33 day wait postie turned up with it yesterday. Itís Slightly battered and damaged but, given the scarcity of the book, I canít really grumble too much (i paid less than £30 so a bargain all things considered).

Am currently reading Fraylingís massive book on OUATITW so will finish that first before moving on to Hanleys amazing book. :)

I wasn't overly impressed with Sully and didn't bother with Paris. Three films (inc Sniper) where you already know the endings seems a bit much.. I kinda wish he'd just made this one ( not inc Sniper)

As a side note some  British reviewers have made much of the scene implicating that the journalist Kathy Skruggs offered to engage in sex with an FBI agent in return for information... It's a shame this has  deflected (for some) from the quality of the film ( actually Sight and Sound gave it an excellent review) Personally I think  they're jumping on the bandwagon and making a little too much of this...

Little Joe

Starring Emily Beecham and Ben Whishaw... A film by Jessica Hausner

Chilly Sci-fi.. Creepy, sinister and unsettling little film. A nod to day of the triffids perhaps but, without any real scares still manages to get under your skin.
I really want to see this again as I've got a feeling more might be revealed on a second viewing..
I was also impressed with the unusual soundtrack...

I have seen Richard Jewell last Saturday in Paris, France.
I really enjoyed it. Perhaps, the best Clint Eastwood film of the 2010s after The Mule and American Sniper.
Clint is still a great filmmaker and storyteller.
Paul Walter Hauser, Sam Rockwell and Kathy Bates gave some nice performances.
Thereís a lot of emotion and sadness.
Clint Eastwood is not tired to talk about the failures and tragedies of America and its institutions, which are supposed to guarantee democracy and peopleís liberties.
The film shows that these institutions can destroy some vulnerable people, depending on the circumstances.
But it also shows that as long as there will be some people who can stand against institutionsí failures, we can be optimistic.
Richard Jewell movie had many positive reviews in France.
Some of them said the film looks like a Frank Capra movie.

Season 1 episode 6 of the television series Yellowstone opens with the theme from Unforgiven. Couldnít see any credit given in the closing credits as the rolled too fast.

By original I meant I wasn't looking for one that was originally used in the production. A finished screenplay, yes. I've seen some online like the one you quote from, KC, and that wouldn't be very fun to read. I have found some completed screenplays that are PDFs online (or some that are just on the webpage but better formatted than what's quoted above).
