Is Clint Eastwood Insane?
Wow, I will never see this movie, but the trailer is hilarious. This is for Clint Eastwood's new film Gran Torino, coming out on December 17th. It has the same Edward Hopper-style cinematography as Million Dollar Baby, and kind of the same central character too (grizzled; skeptical of priests; rediscovers life through an ingratiating, twenty-something female).
But then it also has drive-by shootings, which is very not Million Dollar Baby. (neither are Asian gangs)
It all makes a little more sense when you find out that it's a Dirty Harry film.
