LENS ME YOUR EARS Ep. 013 — Clint Eastwood

Stephen Cooke and I take a look back at the immense career of the 85-year-old American actor and director. We each pick five of our favourite films from his work, and it turns out they’re all pretty idiosyncratic.


We even make the argument that he has more weird left-of-centre work than mainstream hits.


Here’s the list of movies we discuss:

Where Eagles Dare, Play Misty For Me, The Beguiled, Breezy, High Plains Drifter, Thunderbolt & Lightfoot, The Outlaw Josey Wales, White Hunter Black Heart, A Perfect World, and The Bridges Of Madison County


We also squeeze in a little discussion of American Sniper, the biggest box office hit of his directing career, The Eiger Sanction, and Heartbreak Ridge.

Go here for the episode.
