Don’t bother with Grand Torino.* I’m not sure why I bothered.
I’ve watched some of Eastwood’s work, but here he is clearly lost without a goals trying to take advantage of racial slurs and racist ideas to make a point he never quite makes. He has nothing in this film and it an unfortunate waste of a couple hours of your life.
Mr. Eastwood needs to learn you can only take advantage of the racism ever present to make a point if you actually understand the point you are trying to make, he didn’t. He is merely trying to capitalize on something he doesn’t understand.
Go see “Slumdog Millionaire” ***** or that film about the kids and their dog hotel***.
