Hi again Hocine, I also have some teenage memories with Orangutan movies ;-) The first one is so down to earth and easy going, that it is hard not to like. And you are right, "The Mule" seems to be lighter version of "Gran Torino" - I like how Clint is using self-deprecating humor and not afraid of all those threats of the gangsters, feeling like we can easily buy them with any compliments or old school small talk.

Regarding the newest flick, I can only quote his own words from recent interview for Carmel Magazine "I thought it was an interesting one with a true moral dilemma. What if you got called in for jury duty and you realized you were unintentionally involved in the case?". I can't make any predictions, as there is no trailer even to get the feeling of pace, but even with trailers, they often include red herrings. So once it hits cinemas, we can see to which of his previous films we can compare it.


Hey malpaso_PL,
You are welcome.
Your book sounds good. Really. I think that I will order it, when being available. Indeed, the Dollars trilogy is very important in Clint career. Those Sergio Leone films are still popular all around the world. Generally, they are even appreciated by people who are not Clint fans. Actually, I discovered Clint with The Good The Bad And The Ugly and For A Few Dollars More, 34 years ago.

Every Which Way But Loose is not among the most critically acclaimed Clint films, for sure, but it is among the most successful ones. Cinematographically speaking, it is not very interesting. But in many ways, it is a personal film and a new departure for Clint. Actually, Thunderbolt And Lightfoot announced the comedies Clint made in late 70s and early 80s. Every Which Way But Loose shows a lot of his own personality, I think. The fact Clint chose to make that film and turned down many great opportunities in the same decade, such as The Towering Inferno, Sorcerer or Apocalypse Now, showed that he was very confident in his star power. In fact, most of the films Clint made in the 70s were pretty small films. Which is quite surprising because his box office star status was at its peak during that decade. But it was also part of the Malpaso Company style and economic policy, I guess. Though Every Which Way But Loose is still a charming film, I think that its sequel, Any Which Way You Can, is among the worst Clint films. I used to like that sequel, when I was a teenager.

The Mule is a good film and his last successful film at the box office. It is like a lighter version of Gran Torino, in some ways.


What do you think about his next film, Juror #2 ? What are your expectations for this one ? Will it be his last one like some seem to think ?

Go Tell the Spartans 1978

Superior war film starring Burt Lancaster who gives a superb performance

Set in 1964 near the beginning of the Vietnam conflict , showing the futility of the whole war..
Downbeat and gritty? definitely deserved a larger audience at the time but overshadowed by the Deer Hunter

Thanks for posting! Clint's appearance is as to be expected at 93, nearing 94 and it's nice to see even the Daily Mail has nice things to say (frail but spirited).

Keep going Clint! To be still directing movies at your age and have that spark that keeps you getting up in the morning is a huge achievement - an inspiration!

I finally was able to get the Peter J Hanley book from ebay, very slight damage to the edge of the spine but a huge book worthy of anyones collection. Definitely pick it up if you get the chance, they are going for stupid money usually but if you can grab it for ?100 or so then worth it.
