Now, some of you may think, well what about Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven? True, not in keeping with the Traditional Hero persona. Unforgiven was well acted, well directed and it offered a more "true" and "gritty" look on the old West and it's victims, it's villains and even it's heros.
The bad guy, was not so bad and the good guy, was not so good (Gene Hackman's character). Unforgiven was edgy and dark and even though Clint's character was not a good person, you cheered for him to win and in doing so, his character achieved salvation. Maybe I'm biased. But films is an art form, and like all art, it's subjective.
