Clint Eastwood films are one of a kind. They are never the same. He is such a great filmmaker to be not caught up with any kind of material in particular. His 1992 film, Unforgiven, is a western. It has a neat little story and it has been narrated with immense ease. This is a revenge tale but one that is slightly different from other familiar revenge affairs. The film moves at a slow pace. But turns out to be quite gripping in the second hour.
The performances are wonderful and the dialogues are great as well. I hated Gene Hackman. Now that should be because his performance and writing of his part was done so convincingly well.
