A good movie

Since I’m a huge fan of Clint Eastwood’s work, of course, I was really eager to check his directing debut. So, that’s where it all started for him, at least, as far as you consider his career as a director.

Description: Disc jockey Dave Garver attracts the amorous attentions of a demented fan named Evelyn Draper. Evelyn lets Dave pick up at a bar; later at her apartment, Evelyn admits that she is the cooing caller who repeatedly asks Dave to play the Erroll Garner classic "Misty." From then on, the film is a lesson in how one casual date ca ... (more)

“Since I’m a huge fan of Clint Eastwood’s work, of course, I was really eager to check his directing debut.

You can guess that, at the time, the studios thought that Eastwood was just another actor who wanted to pretend to be a director and since he was a huge star, they thought they should give him his wish but they didn’t pay much attention to the end-result. They were not the only ones though as it took about 20 years before Clint Eastwood was taken really seriously as a director. Anyway, how was this directing debut? To be honest, it was a decent flick but still nothing really great though. I mean, it felt like an obvious warm-up for Eastwood who was basically playing around with ” read more

Anautix' Movie Diary 2014 (102 movies items)

"04.01.2014 I know it's a classic, some even say it was ahead of its time. But for me it was a below average romantic thriller that partly felt (unintentionally) like a comedy or a parody of a thriller. Most Hitchcock movies are more thrilling. I also didn't like the soundtrack (except the deadly song "Misty"). But I liked to see Eastwood in one of his earlier films."

My Top 20 Halloween Favorites: Crazy A$s Bitchez (20 movies items)

"Back in 1971, Clint Eastwood premiered the first Diry Harry flick & began his tour de force as the infamous magnum welding S.F. cop with a message to all the law-unabiding "punks" out there....that he's mad as hell and he's not gonna take it anymore! Well, that same year, Evelyn Draper came along in Play Misty For Me & showed all the men that not only is she also mad, but more importantly, she's crazy as hell and she's not gonna be scorned anymore, Clint!

A complete review of Clint Eastwood's work (32 movies items)

" Cast : Clint Eastwood What was it about? A brief fling between a male disc jockey and an obsessed female fan takes a frightening, and perhaps even deadly turn when another woman enters the picture. My two cents: So, that’s where it all started. You can guess that, at the time, the studios thought Eastwood was just another actor who wanted to play the director and since he was a huge star, they thought they should give him his wish but they didn’t pay much attention to the end-result.

Too Young For Heart Attacks: Don't show your kids (13 movies items)

"This movie is really not a horror movie. Actually, it's a pretty decent relationship thriller starring and directed by Clint Eastwood. But when you're no more than 5, it's a terrifying experience in being extremely afraid. There's screaming, blood, knife attacks... stuff kids just aren't ready for. "

" While I didn't make it to watching "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly". The films phillydude sent helped keep this is pretty heavy Eastwood film month. Have to say this is an odd little film from the 70's. The style is very reminiscent of The American New Wave movement but managed to not fully indulge in the self importance boredom found in that niche of film making."
