1992. USA. Directed by Clint Eastwood. Screenplay by David Webb Peoples. With Eastwood, Morgan Freeman. Using the guise of the traditional Western, Eastwood skillfully incorporates the expected codes of the genre while simultaneously challenging the concept of good versus evil. The Western landscape where Eastwood's character has made his home is grand, pure, and, most importantly, isolated from the mud-caked, dust-riddled hellhole of a corrupt town into which he is drawn. 130 min.
