I watched Gran Torino over the weekend. I rented it from Netflix simply because I like Clint Eastwood, and I liked his line, “Get off my lawn!” from the previews. Other than that one line, I didn’t know a thing about this movie. Typically, I wouldn’t expect this to be my kind of movie.
Gran Torino is fantastic! Clint Eastwood deserves an Oscar for best actor for this film. He delivered an amazing performance, no doubt. The film was very deep, and very moving. To top it off, Clint Eastwood himself also directed and produced this movie! Stunning. I gave it a rare five-stars on Netflix. Bravo. This is a fantastic movie in every sense of the craft. Even at his age, Eastwood is still raising the bar.
