I thought you might be interested in this Guardian article from the other day:

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/aug/03/clint-eastwood-what-watching-40-films-box-set-taught-me

I don't 100% agree with everything the writer says but it's a pretty good article.

Haven't watched a Clint film in such a long time ... (hangs head in shame)  :-[

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

It's always a pleasure to hear from you, allycat! :)

It's a good article, aside from a couple of typos ... "A Perfect Life"? "John Brown’s icy rent-a-thug in Pale Rider"? Aside from that, there are a few things I'd disagree with, but mostly an excellent summing up of Clint's long and varied career ... to date, of course.

I know, I think some people called the author out on those mistakes in the comments at the bottom of the article. I was going to give my two pence worth but comments closed – I was tempted to mention me writing my undergraduate dissertation on Clint  8) Anyway, a good excuse to come back and post here  O0

Cool article allycat... Didn't agree with all of it of course but still interesting overview of Clints work so far...

The overview was lame. The Gauntlet was creepy? Tightrope was politically incorrect? Hereafter charming?....Dan Hedaya and John Russell hard working professionals?.... J. Edgar evokes Citizen Kane?...lol......
