Gran Torino

Clint Eastwood is back on the screen in time for Oscar season with a great little film where a war-hardened survivor of the Korean War comes to terms with his neighborhood matriculating with the very same people he fought against in the war. Eastwood is the understood master of the "effortless film". The Eastwood regulars are not in the cast this time out and the movie is all the better for it. Everyone is talking about Eastwood making a good showing at this year's Oscars but I think the other contenders will do better. An Eastwood film is always a must see and the curmudgeon does not disappoint on any level.
