Product Description

Product Description

Unforgiven (BD)

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

There are few moments in the history of film more gripping than the final minutes 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 similar way, William Munny -- the infamous gunslinger who has 'killed everything that walks or crawls, at one time or another' -- has retired from his days as a drunken killer. After renouncing his sinful ways for the devoutly religious woman who will become the mother of his children, he is enticed to return to the way of the gun. Now a widower struggling with the hardships of frontier life as a pig-farming single father, he reluctantly straps on his holster when a wannabe-outlaw suggests they join forces to claim an illegal bounty.Read more ›

The most important aspect of this "Western" is its philospical and spiritual message about the universal condition of man. It is almost biblical in nature like the first chapters of the book of Romans in the New Testament. Man is aware of both good and evil but finally is caught up in evil and unless he is redeemed by the forgivness of God he will die in his sins. The title is very appropriate as the characters in the end are unforgiving and unforgiven. It is a powerful film in that there are certain aspects in the various characters the show they have a sense of what is good but they are unable of themselves to overcome the innate evil of the human heart. There are several classic lines in the film such as the moment the young gunslinger says to Eastwood's character "He has it coming" and the reply is "We all have it coming" The conclusion at the end is that both the man representing the law and the man representing the lawless are both damned. It is not a pretty picture of mankind but a true one and is the reason why the Son of God had to die on the cross that we might be forgiven. There is Evil in man, but goodness in God if we will turn to Him. If this film would have only included the forgiveness of God I would have given it twice five stars.

Redemption can only succeed if the past doesn't haunt the redeemed. Clint Eastwood stars as former outlaw Will Munny. Munny has changed his ways after meeting a woman who literally helped him turn his life around. Now she's gone and he's a struggling farmer with two small children desperate for money to fuel his last chance at staying honest and straight.
Munny decides along with his former partner (a marvelously understated Morgan Freeman)and a young kid to kill two cowboys that cut up a prostitute for a $1000.00 bounty. The only thing standing between him and the money is Little Bill (Gene Hackman who picked up an Oscar for Best Supporting actor)a brutal Sheriff. Munny doesn't know it but he's caught an express train to hell as the cold blooded killer he was comes to the fore again.
Unforgiven is as much about the inability to escape our past as it is about the violence and bloodshed that was later glossed over in the westerns of the 30's and 40's. Munny realizes that killing is a nasty business for both the killer and his victim. Despite his years of hard work and the saving grace of his wife, Munny could easily tip over into the abyss of alcholism and cruelty that dominated his youth. It's a marvelous portrayal and Eastwood, arguably, deserved the Best Acting Oscar as much as the directing and Best Picture Oscars.
This new 10th Anniversary edition has been digitally remastered and looks beautiful. The opening sequence is a good example of the care taken in the transfer. The smoke from Munny's house during sunset snakes gently against the bright orange sky.
