I think this is one of the more interesting Eastwood films out there- it definitely plays with the character of the strong, silent type he usually portrays in films. Here he is playing the director John Huston while he is filming The African Queen- Huston is one the best American directors- but that doesn't mean he was a ' nice guy ' ( in fact he was known to be a bit of a bastard and a bully- just look at Ray Bradbury's comments abut working with him )- and this film delves into the directors demons in harrowing detail- think of it as Eastwood's art film.

I'm a big Clint fan. When I saw this in the library listing, I wondered how I missed seeing this movie. Now I wish I had avoided it. It was a disappointment for me.

I would differ with reviews that say that Eastwood is a good director and a not very good actor. He is good in both roles, but in this movie he is poor at both.

Fakey acting, strained plot and awkward directing. I don't think I've seen all of Clint's movies and I hope this is the worst one. If they're any worse than this one, it's going to be a blow to my admiration for Eastwood.

As to the viewers who may find this movie difficult to watch because of the way indigenous people in the story were treated - maybe the title should be a dead giveaway that the movie was going to involve the locals getting the bad end of the stick.

I can be of some help for the hot house flower movie fans.

If violent crime makes you wince, don't see The Godfather (the title is a tell).

Casablanca? A minority man is forced to play a song on a piano by his dour boss, one of the 1%. Stay away from that one.

And 12 Angry Men - the title tells it all - a dozen males get really upset. Nobody in this town likes to see that happen.

Eastwood is not the greatest actor, great director but acting not so much, but this is bad.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.
