Why are you obsessing over THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES? I enjoy the film as well but I don't make too much out of it.

Didn't you see HEARTLAND or EAGLE'S WING ? They are a lot more interesting and worth talking about than Eastwood's one-note pontification.

obsessing??? i was just brain boshed that you chucked it in a pay no mind bucket with the Charley films and other stuff not even a patch on josey wales. but then youve answered that coz you dont like eastwood and you preferred the books

feel free to talk about Eagles wing but i might fall asleep. i did during the film.

Wrong. I like Eastwood okay I just don't lose my head over him.

You fell asleep during EAGLE'S WING? You mean because Eastwood wasn't in it, right?

Of the films he directed I liked WHITE HUNTER BLACK HEART and HEARTBREAK RIDGE very much. Also liked the Giallo-influenced PLAY MISTY FOR ME, remember that, with the song "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face." Good thriller. I just don't think much of Eastwood's westerns, that's all. He has so much charisma. Charisma to burn. Enough charisma to last three lifetimes. People are so taken by his charisma they give him a free pass on things they'd criticize other directors for.

By the way, I think THE BEGUILED (1972) is first-rate, outstanding Gothic drama. Takes place in the deep south during the Civil War. It's a period film, yes, but it's not a western. The west didn't happen in Georgia. I think it's one of the best films Don Siegel ever directed. And yes, Eastwood is the star.
