The Unforgiven has such a real western feeling to it. There isn't much too the town. Those that can bully for what they want get it. But Clint Eastwood comes to town and changes all that. The closing shoot out is worth the price of admission. A Five Star Western and another memorable movie from Clint Eastwood.

The perfect western. No flash. No frills. A winding tale of the wild west with incredible characters and acting. The scenery is gorgeous and the costumes and sets make for a great period piece. So many great lines. The final fifteen minutes are the best ending possible. Great cast. Clint at his best.

While the characters of the story are fictional, you can see inspirations of real persons of the Old West in the novel. Little Bill Daggett reminded me of Tom Smith, the sheriff killed at Abilene in 1870. Smith beat up Big Hank and Wyoming Frank to announce his presence, and established an unpopular ‘no guns in town’ edict. The only Englishmen from the Old West who comes to memory is John Tunstall from the Lincoln County War, who hardly seems like a template for English Bob, the Duck of Death. There is no surprise that Strawberry Alice was the leader of the soiled doves because redheads were prized companions in the bed in the Old West. Of course, it does not hurt that Frances Fisher was involved romantically with Clint Eastwood at the time. This movie deserves its accolades, even though deserves has nothing to do with it.

"Malpaso". Clint Eastwood's film production company. Translation: "Bad road". Describes and foreshadows so many of The Man's killer flicks. And this one is on the top shelf. Four Oscars, including Best Picture, and Best Director (Mr. E.). Hackman won Best Actor, but I would've given it to Eastwood for that category, too. Maybe The Academy didn't want to overdo it, who knows. He's an older, reflective, remorseful, humbled bad@ss gunslinger in this, and that's a big part of its charm. The sequence where he's dancing with his unwilling-to-be-ridden/now a plow-horse was priceless. The tender exchange between he and the poor woman who got slashed (at the secluded prairie hideout) was quite touching. And the righteous climax at film's end is OUTSTANDING. The steely-eyed "Man With No Name", the avenger of those unjustly wronged, as in "Pale Rider", or "The Outlaw Josey Wales", to name a couple, was REBORN. Clint Eastwood changed the face of Westerns. The man is an icon. Due, in part, to two men he admired greatly, and whom he pays homage to at the end of the credits, as follows: "Dedicated to Sergio (Leone, who passed in '89, and directed him in his inimitable Spaghetti Westerns) and Don (Siegel, director of the "Dirty Harry" franchise, and passed in '91). And this piece, this final Western from him, is an incredible monument to his legacy. Tremendous film. FIVE STARS.

The hype ruined this one for me, or the film would have been held in my higher graces. However, it is definitely a good film. Best Picture ... I'm still not a hundred percent sure, but definitely a great film. It rewrites westerns, a genre that is pretty simple in its structure. It focuses on a new kind of hero, and really, this film is the ultimate love story. It isn't a romance, don't be confused. But the prologue and epilogue of the film say everything that needs to be said about a love that will never die, even when it does. And for that, I highly recommend this film to all audiences, young and old.

Will Munny (holding a rifle on everyone in the saloon, who just fell silent, after realizing who just walked in): "Who's the fellow owns this shithole?" (pause) "You. Fat man. Speak up." Skinny Dubois: "Uh, I... I own this establishment. I bought the place from Greeley for a thousand dollars." Will Munny (aiming Ned's Spencer rifle at man behind Skinny): "You better clear outta there." Man: "Yes, sir!" (vamooses) Little Bill Daggett: "Just hold it right there. Hold it...!" (Will shoots Skinny) "Well, sir, you are a cowardly son of a bitch! You just shot an unarmed man!" Will Munny: "Well, he should have armed himself if he's going to decorate his saloon with my friend."

"She was a comely young woman and not without prospects. Therefore it was heartbreaking to her mother that she would enter into marriage with William Munny, a known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition. When she died, it was not at his hands as her mother might have suspected, but of smallpox. That was 1878."
