Editorial Reviews

For 35 years Clint Eastwood has called Warner Bros. home. In The Eastwood Factor (Extended Version), film historian Richard Schickel (You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story) ventures beyond Eastwood’s tough, iconic screen personas to reveal the easygoing and thoughtful man behind the magic. Morgan Freeman narrates this insightful profile that features memorable film clips and visits to movie locations, the Warner Bros. lot and Eastwood’s hometown Carmel where, with humor, candor and intelligence, Eastwood illuminates the craft behind his legendary work on both sides of the camera to create a rare experience that is pure, unadulterated Clint.

As soon as I heard the voice come from the screen I was mesmerized. That deep voice, thoughtful in its pauses, as if every word is well considered before delivery. One of the sexiest, and most easily recognized voices in the world. Not Clint Eastwood, although his low-pitched growl is still as recognizable as ever. Morgan Freeman. A voice that most of us would recognize immediately if he were speaking three aisles away in a crowded grocery store.

If the original Eastwood Factor was an intimate look at Clint Eastwood through the eyes of his friend and fellow filmmaker Richard Schickel, then the extended version, for all that remains the same, is a new and entirely different film. Morgan Freeman's deeply intellectual and slightly philosophical narration is driving the Eastwood Factor train this time. Freeman, a Hollywood icon in his own right, has worked closely with Eastwood on some of his most important films. Every project these two men have undertaken together has turned into Oscar gold.

In the extended Eastwood Factor Morgan Freeman and Clint Eastwood talk about the movie Invictus, the 29th film that Eastwood has directed. Freeman says, in the omniscient voice of narrator, "I developed the project and brought it to Clint" the scene goes to Eastwood, sitting in his chair at home. "He just calls me up one day and says 'I have a really good script I'd love you to direct'. Whenever somebody calls you up and says 'I have a really good script' you always go, 'Okay... We'll be the judge of that.' I read it. I called him back and said, 'It is a really good script. And yes. I'll do it.' This element of his history [Nelson Mandela] I don't think people are that familiar with.

Clint Eastwood is one of the few actors who can direct, produce and compose the music for his films. Many actors who try to do this fall flat on their face. However, Eastwood has proven himself time and time again through extraordinary films like "Unforgiven", Million Dollar Baby", "Letters from Iwo Jima" and "Gran Torino."

"The Eastwood Factor" is a documentary about Clint Eastwood's film career. While this documentary does not speak to Eastwood's personal life, it does a great job of describing Eastwood's notable films. The documentary also includes Eastwood himself speaking on what inspired him to make each film. Most appropriately Morgan Freeman who has co-stared in numerous Eastwood films narrates the documentary.

If you interested in documentaries or Clint Eastwood himself, you will find this documentary to be quiet interesting and entertaining.

Format: DVD
In recent years, after directing films like Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino, and Invictus, Clint Eastwood has established himself as not only a classic actor, but also director/producer. This little documentary sits down with Clint to talk to him about some of his films.

Though not getting into any of Clint's personal life, this documentary spans his Dirty Harry, loner western, comedy/romance, and high-drama career turns over the past 30 years. Not all his films are covered, but the most iconic ones are. Clips of the films themselves interspersed with Eastwood's comments and recollections make for a highly engrossing format that will hook you in the first five minutes.

Basically, if you are a fan of any of Eastwood's varied body of on-screen work, this is a DVD that needs to be in your collection pronto!

I bought this based on the reviews that suggested it gave lots of insight into Eastwood's directorial style; I was sorely disappointed.

This DVD is not well-written, and though the narration is voiced by the great Morgan Freeman, the dialogue sounds pretty-much forced. So many of the clips seem to be headed somewhere and then, they simply fade to black and move on to the next clip.

Rent it or buy it used, but unless you absolutely must see some short clips of each of Clint Eastwood's films that are forced together in ways that don't entirely make sense, you'll be disappointed.

This was a boring DVD. The life of Mr. Eastwood is far more interesting than this movie. There was little insight into his personal philosophies on life and his mindset for success.

35 films 35 years. There was jazz before Charlie Parker and after Bird. And there was a movie industry before Clint Eastwood and after him. He is a symbol of an era in showbusiness. He has become fame with his roles in the westerns rebelling with the cause, but even the westerns as a genre were not like they were after and with Eastwood. Telling the truth, he likes more the movies like The Bridges of The Madison County, Invictus, Gran Torino, Bird, Mystic River, Flags of Our Fathers and some other movies, focused on the relationships between humans, where the fate blows them to the unexpected situations. Which he loves. Some stories just were needed to be told. Including Letters from Iwo Jima. His number one according to his own words, "His Cuishle", is Million Dollar Baby, which is far more than just a boxing movie. And there is always some human factor in his movies. He likes the action as such, but he has shown through his movies, that there is no need for gun shooting and blood for to have the action.

It is an intimate portrait of a legendary stormy career not just as an actor, director, producer, but also as an musician and composer, brought to the spotlight by a historian Richard Schickel, who ventures beyond Eastwood`s tough, iconic screen personas to reveal the easygoing and thoughtful man behind the screen. An actor Morgan Freeman narrates this insightful profile that features memorable film clips and visits to movie locations and his hometown Carmel, where with humor, candor and intelligence, Eastwood illuminates the craft behind his legendary work on both sides of the camera to create a rare experience that is pure, unadultarated Clint. And we have the chance to step to the spotlight with him.
