Still the man

I've never interviewed Clint Eastwood, much to my chagrin, although our paths crossed briefly the year he was president of the Cannes jury. Clint was coming out of the Majestic Hotel, I was strolling in. It was a beautiful moment. For me, at least. Clint didn't even notice. Then again, he was talking to Catherine Deneuve at the time. So who can blame him. Clint is a star unlike any other. Seems I'm not the only one who feels that way.

great article. to be honest, i've never paid much attention to mr. eastwood. but, given this article's insight, i think i need to go back and revisit some of his films and look at them, not as "action" flicks or what have you, but as studies on the human condition.

also, now i really need to see Gran Torino.

I've always been a big fan of A Perfect World. Very underrated movie that one.
