Clint Eastwood is now, and will forever remain, one of America's greatest filmmakers. I'll take it a step further, Clint Eastwood is one of the top five filmmakers of all time.  His ability to simply Tell a compelling character-driven story is unmatched.  The performances he gets from the actors he works with are nothing short of amazing. One day we will not have Clint Eastwood anymore, and that will be a loss as tragic as it is inevitable.

Richard Jewell is a remarkable film, the story of a man trying to do the right thing caught up in the gears of our wonderful government's law enforcement system and the brave attorney who defended him.  What makes this movie even more amazing is the fact that the main actor playing Richard Jewell, Paul Walter Hauser, is absolutely fantastic. He plays him so perfectly, You just can't imagine anyone else in the part.

Sam Rockwell as his attorney confirms what I thought for a long time; Sam Rockwell is a great actor.

And lastly you have to mention Kathy Bates, who has old southern woman down so pat that you just assume that she's everyone's mother south of the Mason-Dixon line.

I know you think you know the story, especially those of us who lived it, but you really have to see this film. I can't recommend it enough.

5/5

Shirley there are a lot of decent actors surrounded by talentless hacks in terrible movies.

The actors may even themselves be terrible psychos, but often that doesn't mean they can't act. It's probably part of their talent, at least until they self-destruct.

What I'm trying to say is that it's nice to see that there are promising young directors like Clint Eastwood making great films which showcase such talent.
