"Why is Clint Eastwood's 1984 film, "Tightrope", popular despite - even because - of the fact that it splinters Eastwood's macho image? The answer lies in its combination of the ambiguities of male doppelganger cinema with the soft underbelly of Eastwood's star persona, and our own ambivalences toward the way sexuality, gender, and power are aligned today."

Clint Eastwood's new film Flags of Our Fathers looks at the Second World War through the lens of the flag-raising photograph that announced the American military's capture of Iwo Jima in Japan in 1945. By drawing on the history of the famous image, which was a propaganda coup for a war-weary America, Eastwood unravels the harsh realities of the soldier's lot.

"This boxing picture features a veteran trainer, Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood), and Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank), the young female boxer he reluctantly takes under his wing. Although boxing movies nearly always end in tragedy, nothing prepares the audience for the jolt of Maggie's paralyzing injury and its consequences. Swank's feisty performance lifts Maggie from being just a symbol, but it's Frankie who is at the heart of this film."

"Reviews Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby, the Academy Award-winning drama about a woman fighter rising through the boxing ranks under the tutelage of Eastwood's Frankie Dunn, which was recently released on DVD. The reviewer notes that the Oscars for both Best Picture and Best Director were clearly a tribute to Eastwood and his legacy of contrasting the gritty and sublime aspects of the human condition. According to the reviewer, the themes and characters blend nicely through this first half of the film, and the principal characters are reasonably well developed, if not predictable. However, he notes that as the plot unfolds, so does the gratuity of the story. He also critiques the portrayal of acute rehabilitation, the lack of character development in the nonprincipal roles, and the perpetuation of the stereotype that people who experience a spinal cord injury, especially one that results in tetraplegia, would rather be dead--that life isn't worth living any longer."

"If you haven't seen Million Dollar Baby and plan to do so, stop reading. There is much to like about the film. As a physician devoted to palliative care, which tries to maximize quality of life sometimes in the face of seemingly intolerable suffering, I have helped many patients like the boxer to find ways to keep going and find meaning in their lives again. But as an advocate for greater patient choice about end-of-life matters, I believe that such patients have the right to choose to die. In my 25 years of practice, I have helped a few patients to end their lives, sometimes secretly and sometimes openly. In this article, the author discusses end-of-life matters using the movie Million Dollar Baby to illustrate his points." [PsychInfo]

"Two articles present two different views of Clint Eastwood's multi-Oscar winning film Million Dollar Baby. The first article compares this film with the original story by F. X. Toole from which it derives: As both present problems in their exploration of moral values, the film's detractors have found a great deal to be disparaging about, but they may also have responded to a core value in this tale told by, and predominantly about, older men torn between their preference for prudence and the impetuosity of youth. The second article examines the film's sentimentality: The film is melodrama pure and simple--perhaps the melodrama to end all melodramas--and Clint Eastwood as character and/or director is, if anything, even more self-aggrandizing than before."

"Staying Power." [Interview with C. Eastwood]. Film Comment v. 41 no. 1
"As Million Dollar Baby reveals, Clint Eastwood continues to discover new challenges both in front of and behind the camera. Loss, regret, and the things one does and fails to learn from experience are the themes of Eastwood's late works, among which Million Dollar Baby is one of the best. A tough work of art that develops into something like King Lear, the film derives much of its emotional power from Eastwood's performance as a wreck of a man who has spent a lifetime in boxing, now owns a dilapidated gym, occasionally manages a boxer, and is persuaded to take on a female boxer played by Hilary Swank. In an interview, Eastwood discusses such subjects as what he wants people to be left with at the end of the movie, whether he likes to act, and his views of boxing and of women's boxing in particular."
