I have always been interested why did the people like Wilder and Capra stop directing so young. I think this may be your best years … provided that they continue to change. The world is constantly changing, so you have to change with it.
Together with Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese, Eastwood is one of the most famous film directors of contemporary American cinema. Although they may represent the old guard and the remains of the seventies, a great period for films, there is no doubt that their films in the last thirty years are at the very top, and that in many ways they surpass works by directors of the newer generation. This book analyzes the manner and way in which Eastwood has quietly managed to reach that level. In addition to that, I hope this book is a proof of his artistic talent.
