I just watched Gran Torino.
There is a hollowness in Clint Eastwood’s movies. I mean it as a compliment, but it is there nonetheless… some spaces in the acting and writing, and even the shooting that I don’t know if I am smart enough to get. But, it makes me feel like I’m NOT watching the latest flick.
There was a lot in there about good Masculinity. That part makes me sad for a lot of reasons I really don’t feel like getting into.
There was some community stuff… I guess.
There was some racist stuff… I guess.
There was some spiritual stuff… I guess.
What was the last movie you saw that moved you? I think Gran Torino moved me. It made me sad that I didn’t know some men well, and sadder that I didn’t know others longer. It is interesting and difficult to be a man. I would compare it to being a woman, but you know… I do live with three of them though. Ron doesn’t count. Check the blog in five years and we’ll see if I have come up with anything.
I think Gran Torino moved me. What was the last movie that moved you?
Yes, I know the picture is not of a Gran Torino… I liked Better off Dead A LOT when I was growing up…
