No one can deny that Eastwood is a legend when it comes about western movies. He has acted and directed many western movies and Unforgiven is one of my favorite. The film won four academy awards for best director, best picture, best supporting actor and best film editing. Clint Eastwood emerges himself as Munny, a former gunslinger returned to his life of killing for money. The movie is a perfect example for heroism, courage, violence, friendship and revenge. With David Webb Peoples, he created some of best unforgettable characters and moments, especially the last one where Munny threatened the people before leaving the town. Unforgiven is one of the best Clint Eastwood Movies directed.
How much a war could affect soldiers when they get back to the civilian life?
