I watched Eastwood’s Gran Torino last night.  This is perhaps Eastwood’s best film ever, better than Million Dollar Baby.  Completely incorrect politically, and Eastwood did a great job, as did the other actors.  Guaranteed to offend the politically correct crowd but old farts like me enjoyed it greatly.  Not a film for children, but few physically gross scenes, most of it is in the dialogues back and forth, and Eastwood’s facial expressions.

Truth, especially “moral truth,” is that elusive human creation whose exclusive apprehension is claimed by many, who then sanctimoniously condemn anyone else who does not agree with their particular apprehension, while denying that any question can be posed about their own apprehension.  I will try to avoid that tendency.  DEC

From the trailers I’ve seen it looks like a vigilante film. If so, I think I would like it.  wink

Rab,

Not really, it is much better than that.

I can’t wait to see this movie.  I’ve always been an Eastwood fan.

Stephanie,

You should enjoy it.  One of his best, maybe his best.
