after movies like 'unforgiven' and now 'mystic river' do you agree that clint falls in the league of directors like martin scrossese, david lean , ridley scott , james cameron  and other great ones i mean is he more of a director than an actor.

Howdy ajay :) Yes! I'd even go so far as to say that he's more on a par with enduring legends like Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock - acclaimed, highly visual storytellers who are unmatched in their ability to deliver a focused, powerful, and original vision through their craft.

I recognize that it can be somewhat difficult to divorce Clint's acting from his directing, since he simultaneously tackles both so well so often; but I think his work purely as a director has surpassed his considerable accomplishments as an actor.

However, it appears I'm somewhat in the minority here according to this recent poll :o  (Voting is still open ;))

I already considered him in that class.  Most of those directors probably consider him the professor!

I think Clint will go down as one of the greatest American Film directors of all time.Million Dollar Baby was the icing on the cake in a remarkable directing career which is still not finished yet. O0
As for his acting.He may cut back on that now and concentrate on working behind the camera,but if his performance in Million Dollar Baby is anything to go by he can still amaze audiences.

mgk's link worked so I voted.   Clint Eastwood is certainly up there as one of the greatest.  In fact number one!
