Pretty nice little flashback to Clint's career
18 June 2002 | by (Järvenpää, Finland) – See all my reviews

If you've seen "Clint Eastwood: Out of the shadows", if you enjoyed watching it and want to see another quite good documentary about him and his works I would have to recommend "Clint Eastwood: The Man from Malpaso" as directed by Gene Feldman. It's seven years older and a little shorter documentary and it naturally tells the same story about the same sensational actor/director but it offers at least some interesting thoughts and new details and information about the man you necessarily haven't heard elsewhere. We hear comments of actors/actresses and filmmakers like Gene Hackman, Ted Post, Michael Cimino, Geneviene Bujold, Forest Whitaker, Joel Cox, Lennie Niehaus and Buddy Van Horn. Of course Eastwood himself tells about his excellent films and incredible career. We see couple of small scenes from tv series "Rawhide" where Clint played the role of Rowdy Yates. It started Eastwood's countdown to superstardom. Breakthrough western "A Fistful of dollars", thriller classic "Dirty Harry", "High plains drifter", Michael Cimino's directorial debut "Thunderbolt and lightfoot", sympathetic "Bronco Billy", "Honkytonk man", one of his darkest movies "Tightrope", fantastic "Pale rider", "Bird" and "White hunter, black heart" followed later on. Documentary offers moments from all of these unforgettable films. At the end camera briefly goes behind the scenes of "Unforgiven". Overall this is a fine tv special about the man who took the name of Malpaso creek for his company and still at the age of 72 keeps on making marvellous motion picture classics. Question is, how are you going to find this one out? I taped "Clint Eastwood: The Man from Malpaso" couple of years ago from television and I guess it's not the easiest documentary to catch nowadays.
