This DVD is great not only as a source of information on such an inspiring man, but also as a wealth of tips on how to direct.
I only deduct one star because there is not enough interviews with the mystery man himself and because I wanted to see way more of him actually working on his films (instead of finished famous scenes from his films).
This man deserves way more acknowledgement from the Oscars. They should definantly give him an honarary life time acheivement award real soon. Because whether he's acting or directing, nobody in film, can say so much with so little words.
What I've always found fascinating about Eastwood is how people didn't foresee the fact that this man had staying power, that he could be more than a stereotype (although I think he allowed himself to be stereotyped for awhile and made big bucks doing so; not the dumbest move around).
Watch this documentary, though, and try to think beyond the comments of the reviewers. They have worthwhile points but take them as a starting point for reflecting on Eastwood's career and about when he veered from Westerns and Dirty Harry type roles to even more daring movies. He has continued to evolve from actor to director and...what takes my breath away and serves as inspiration for me...is how, at his age, he is able to stay on top of the game, with the chops to direct Mystic River and Million Dollar Baby. I think he's surprised even himself but that, of course, is just a wild guess.
Anyway, this documentary is a must for Eastwood fans and will provide new facts as well, even for those who think they know it all, as well as a divergence of opinions (feel free to disagree with any or all of them). After watching this, do your own research or just go back and go through his films from the early years onward. While you are at it, get a track of Sergio Leone music (just trust me on that one; see below):
