Yeh, GT was a great movie. It was a 'different sort' of bravery though, since he knew he was terminally ill. Not to spoil the plot for others here.

Took an Asian family to remodel his attitude.I had a mentor like that,trying to "man me up",as I was a nice little pussy of guy.Honestly Ciggy,best,realistic film I ever seen,it did'nt work with far-out concepts and inter-stellar special affects,but the here and now,issues everyone could work on,in every aspect of modern life.A film I believe that could change the world.Also suspected,it might be Clint's bon voyage film,his parting message and observation to what the modern world has become.Best film...for me,anyway.

I agree it's probably the best Clint's ever done. And one of the top 10 or so films of all time.

Of course nothing tops the Lo There scene:

My son loves the movie and the PC game that goes with...The special effects of the chopper shredding the rebels disturbed me at first,but was stoned,when seen it.

Very Bad things is another film I liked...but totally different subject matter.
