Product Description

Amazon.ca

Winner of four Academy Awards, including best picture, director, supporting actor and best editing, Clint Eastwood's 1992 masterpiece stands as one of the greatest and most thematically compelling Westerns ever made. "The movie summarised everything I feel about the Western," said Eastwood at the time of the film's release. "The moral is the concern with gunplay." To illustrate that theme, Eastwood stars as a retired, once-ruthless killer-turned-gentle-widower and hog farmer. He accepts one last bounty-hunter mission--to find the men who brutalised a prostitute--to help support his two motherless children. Joined by his former partner (Morgan Freeman) and a cocky greenhorn (Jaimz Woolvett), he takes on a corrupt sheriff (Oscar winner Gene Hackman) in a showdown that makes the viewer feel the full impact of violence and its corruption of the soul. Dedicated to Eastwood's mentors Sergio Leone and Don Siegel and featuring a colourful role for Richard Harris, Unforgiven is arguably Eastwood's crowning directorial achievement. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastwood's Dark Masterpiece May 29 2003
Format:DVD
For many years now, my favorite Clint Eastwood western was "The Outlaw Josey Wales". But, in 1992, that changed. That was the year "Unforgiven' was released, and there will have to be something pretty significant to dislodge this film's achievement from my mind--though TOJW remains a close second. What makes this film so great are the star/director, supporting cast, cinematography, and story are so well matched as to create a film for the ages.
The story is one that works on many levels. It begins with one insecure cowboy and a prostitute of Big Whiskey, Wyoming that cascades into an unforgivable act of violence. One that'll beget more when all is done. The local sheriff, "Little Bill" Daggett (Gene Hackman in top award form), has a less-than adequate consequence for the cowboys involved--especially for her fellow prostitutes led by Strawberry Alice (Frances Fisher). Thus, this group of women will look outside of the law (since it's done nothing for them and their mutilated cohort) in search for "justice."
And so, a word-of-mouth bounty of $1000 is placed on the trails and in the ears of any 'randy' passersby. This promise of a bounty (through a young relative of an old sidekick) will eventually find William Munny (Eastwood), a poor, widowed Kansas pig farmer trying to make ends meet for his two young children. The "Schofield Kid" (Jaime Woolvett) has heard, in passed down tales, that Munny was one of the most cold-blooded bounty hunters there ever was. A "... known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition" that he surmises would be an asset to have for the quest ahead.

5.0 out of 5 stars excelent film building on Eastwood's westerns Oct. 31 2012
Format:DVD
Here we have the final western by clint..and comparisons are made to john wayne. Although this is not fair to Wayne, since much of his work, was not under his control, I dont think he had a company and largely through agents or whatever forces, choose this or that? Clint has complete control and has choosen the avenues of myth to write stories, Orson welles hitchcock two reelers and the two dons(to whom the film is dedicated)...are influences for his view of life. Probably there are influences we dont know..the commentator mentions where he was raised..or whatever? Here we have the start a man in mourning, his wife is deceased and we learn of her through his memories, a very modern technique, through his eyes and the commentator of the film sees a 'comic-religosio-' or something like that in that way he relates to wife and kids..and than we have a hitchcockian interlude about some prostitutes..who play a role like the witches in macbeth...eyes and various organs. Eyes the heart of the soul in the ancient world...dismemberment..and all the actions in the film the sufferings of the innocent, much like a christ like image in the NT is seen through their eyes, all kinds of moral insights. The scourging..whatever they appear and it bears on their emotions..on innocent people...Eastwood than has a fever..and sees snakes..demons..has a purgatorial time experience feels cleansed and clear..those who dismember must die..a constant theme in his movies..although wife,friends,family...he needs to do a story only the perpetrators are killed, and that forms the basis of the story..

5.0 out of 5 stars William Munny's Ride Back Into Big Whiskey June 14 2014
By Corey Lidster TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
There are few moments in the history of film more gripping than the final act of Unforgiven, beginning with the moment Munny (played by Eastwood) realizes that Ned is, in fact, dead, and takes the whiskey bottle from the hands of the Schofield kid without saying another word. There is a nihilistic thrill as William Munny embraces alcohol and firearms and rides back into town, something that taps the oldest parts of our reptile brain, accessing archetypal memories of heroes like Achilles, who did nothing particularly 'heroic' in the modern sense -- he was an (almost) indestructible killing machine, who sulked and retired from the killing field after Agamemnon took the slave he won in battle. He returned to it as an avenging angel, chasing down and killing the noble Hector after the Trojan prince defeated the Achaean's cousin Patrocles in single combat, mistaking him for Achilles when the frustrated young warrior, tired of watching the battle rage without him, donned the famous armor and helm belonging to the son of Peleus. In the same way, William Munny the infamous gunslinger who has 'killed everything that walks or crawls, at one time or another', retired from his days as an alcoholic killer after falling in love with the young woman who introduced him to the Bible, becoming his wife and the mother of his children, is enticed to return to the way of the gun after a wannabe-outlaw suggests they join forces to assassinate two men with money on their heads.

This movie is an incredible story and great drama. I was never a fan of westerns growing up apart from the odd Eastwood film like Pale Rider or The Outlaw Josey Wales. Read more
