Product Description

Amazon.ca

Clint Eastwood fired the original director, Philip Kaufman (The Right Stuff), and took over the reins of this project himself. He may have had a point: this brutal, thoughtful western, a near-tragedy about a Civil War veteran whose past comes looking for him, is probably Eastwood's most mature frontier drama prior to the Oscar winning Unforgiven. Hoping to build a quiet life in a cooperative community of settlers, Eastwood's Wales blames himself when his enemies attack the homestead, and he has to revert to his warrior instincts to help fend off the threat. The jittery intensity of Sondra Locke (who would be Mrs. Eastwood, at least for a while), and the screen-filling charisma of the late Chief Dan George harmonize beautifully with Eastwood, who had finally figured out how to add depth and texture to his stock-in-trade Man of Steel persona. This one may be too short on action to satisfy fans of Eastwood's Dirty Harry films, or of the Italian westerns he made with Sergio Leone, but it's an honorable effort. --David Chute

Special Features

The Special Edition includes a behind-the-scenes documentary, the original theatrical trailer, and an all-new introduction by Clint Eastwood.

I really like Clint Eastwood and have enjoyed all of his movies up to date that I have seen. This one was not as enjoyable as most and will probably not watch it again. May just donate it to my Library.

Nobody makes westerns better than Clint Eastwood. The "Outlaw Josey Wales" is one of Eastwood's classic's and is a movie I can watch over and over again.

Here we are reviewing the films of the retrospective film edition offered to the public by Clint Eastwood, many of which were produced by his company, and what other film star has produced so many of his own films. The previous film scene marked a breakthrough for clint, and as the bonus material said his vision and values, evinced in The Bridges of Madison County, which did well among younger viewers, as well as his older fans. Love in that film is seen as a "mystery pure and absolute." As one reviewer stated on the bonus track an "iconic" film. Here we are in "Outlaw JOsey WAles" which is a hybrid film, bringing in several elements well blended by the writer a gunman on the run during the civil war and there is constant mention of sanctuary in Mexico, but he is an innocent man like a John Grisham novel, and decides to come in an dfight it out. This film really is about the innocent and their suffering, graphically displayed by director Eastwood, including a savage rape scene by a group of thugs, and this scene alone stays in your mind as he makes his way to kill the union officer, and slowly and excruciatingly puts the sword in him and slowly pulls it out...and thats the basis of the film those two images, group rape and vengeance and there's also an Indian chief who dramatically tells all that's wrong with the 19th century world and gives traditional Indian gripes, or are they just Indian gripes?, and then there's a final shootout among many images of crosses like "the bridges of madison County" and this is a film infused with violence, much as the human mind of these characters and their world and vengeance, although the cross is a christian image, this is played lightly is it a symbol of suffering of the innocent victims and they're scattered throughout this film...

5.0 out of 5 stars Clint Eastwood's best movie: an American Classic March 27 2004
Format:DVD
Although Clint Eastwood gained his greatest critical acclaim as a director for 1992's "Unforgiven" and 2003's "Mystic River" -- both of which are incredible pieces of American cinema -- his best film remains this perennially popular Western from 1976. Here's Eastwood's own take on it: "I do believe that if I'd made that picture in 1992, in place of 'Unforgiven,' it might have received the same amount of attention, because I think it's equally as good a film. I think the subject matter of 'Josey Wales' is timeless." Orson Welles himself named it one of his favorite movies!
Yet critics at the time completely dismissed it as just another Clint Eastwood Western-Revenge flick. On the surface, the plot might give you that illusion: Missouri farmer Josey Wales loses his family to marauding Union cutthroats during the civil war. In retaliation, he joins Qunatrill's raiders in the guerrilla warfare that flames across Missouri. When the war ends, Wales refuses to surrender. He flies west across the country, chased by his former leader Fletcher (John Vernon in a great, sympathetic performance) and Terrill, the Union captain who murdered his family (Eastwood regular Bill McKinney). It seems Wales has no future except to stay alive long enough to get his revenge.
But...that's not at all what movie ends up being about. Gradually, Wales finds himself at the center of a growing community of outcasts from many different backgrounds: an old Cherokee named Lone Watie (Chief Dan George, in the film's most unforgettable performance), a band of Northern settlers (including Sondra Locke in her first role with Clint), a girl from another Native American tribe, the residents of a dying Texas town, and a red bone hound.
