Here's hoping Clint Eastwood keeps directing movies for the next twenty years, and acting in some of them, too. His latest is probably my favorite—a terrific story about bigotry that is honest, tragic, and frequently very funny.
What can I say, I like Tom Cruise. He's a real movie star. Valkyrie's a little slow at first but the last third is surprisingly dramatic. Crisp photography, a great cast, a pretty good thriller.
I left the theater in under half an hour. My fault entirely. I saw the trailers, read the reviews, and bought tickets. Your move.
Two for one. See review above for The Spirit.
