Worth every penny.
Clint Eastwood nabbed his second Best Director Oscar for this emotion-packed tale of life and death in the boxing ring.
And, like most of his work, there is not an ounce on fat on it.
Famous for working quickly and politely, the man who would be viewed as one of our best directors if the whole “last of the true movie stars” thing didn’t always come up first, he gets in, gets out, and lets the story carry the day.
Guiding Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman to Oscars of their own, Eastwood is a master at work.
