Thanks Antonis, I enjoyed watching it and will buy it when it is released but also agree that it was nothing new for fans like us that have seen more interesting documentaries.

Thanks for posting the link. I'll probably buy this too.

I'm not sure there is anything new that anyone could add? Clint's career has been so well covered, so many times, I doubt there is anything that would surprise us now.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I suppose you're right,but I expected a fresh look.

I think there are always interesting stories and experiences to share about Eastwood's process as a filmmaker. Palooka, you have shared a few of these yourself, so I know that these stories exist! All that is ever said in these documentaries is that Clint is the best director out there, but beyond that, it's rarely ever explained why. What separates Eastwood from other directors and how does he approach the filmmaking process? How does this approach differ from other director's these actors have worked with? The explanations for why he is so great are that he doesn't say action or cut, he does very few takes, and he's worked with the same crew for decades, but I am sure that there are things that set Eastwood apart from others beyond these superficial points. I'd love to learn about what those are. How does Eastwood deal with conflict? What is his approach to dealing with the technical aspects of filmmaking? How does Eastwood deal with unforseen or unexpected challenges throughout the shoot? When an actor has a problem, how does Eastwood deal with it? Those actors and film professionals who have worked with him are in a unique position to shed light into Eastwood's total role as a filmmaker, but these very interesting aspects of his career are almost never dealt with or explored in these documentaries. Thankfully, we got a lot of that from the Master Filmmaker at Work book that came out recently, but it would be so nice and so interesting to delve into all of this on these documentaries about Eastwood's career because these are the things that make Eastwood such a great director, yet they are almost never explored in these retrospectives.

Hey I'm curious. I'm watching the interview with Arnovsky and Eastwood obviously doesn't mind taking the time to do this kind of thing ( discussing the detailed mechanics of making films) but it would be nice if one of these interview guys would get brave and ask him why he doesnt do an audio commentary for his films

I can't really buy his argument ( if thats his excuse) that 'the movie stands on its own merits' because if he truly felt that way he wouldn't submit to these handful of interviews he has given over the years. I would think he'd have other things to do in the evening besides sit there for an hour or two going ove rthe technical side of the business which in and of itself- arguably- has its own niche audience. I mean I bet only 20 or 30 percent of people who rent or buy a DVD take the time to listen to the audio commentary. I mean, I do it because its fascinating to hear how the creative side of the business works- especially if its a pretty good commentary. And yeah, sure, it means watching the films twice if you're that big of a fan but I bet the average viewer doesnt even bother. And yet Hollywood no doubt figures there IS some sort of market for it or they wouldnt provide the time or money to add this stuff to a DVD package

Having said that---   it would sure be nice if he'd take a year off and at least go through the films he himself has a personal attachment to and do it for the fans who love taking it all in

But....  oh well. We can only enjoy what little we do have access to. Still, I can dream, right?

^ Preaching to the choir there iconfan ;)

That's pretty much what we've all been dreaming about: audio commentaries on every single one of his films (dream big or don't dream at all hehe ;D )
