A good movie

Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and it would be pretty neat to watch it again. I remember it very well, I actaully had a Belgian roommate who thought that it was the worst movie ever made but I thought it was actually pretty good. Anyway, it is arguably one of the most obscure movies directed by Eastwood, certainly the most overlooked one. Even though it was indeed his worst performing picture of the 1990s at the box-office, it was still an intriguing picture and, like I pointed out before, I would really like to re-watch it at some point. The point is that when I first watched it, I was pretty young and even though I heard about John Huston, I was pretty oblivious about the guy, I hadn't seen yet 'The African Queen' or any other of his work as a matter of fact so I missed quite a lot while watching this. Anyway, it was a pet project for Clint Eastwood who agreed to do 'The Rookie' for the Warner Brothers studio only if they would let him make this flick. Eventually, even though it is one of the least commercial efforts by Eastwood, it is actually really appealing, I highly recommend it and it is definitely worth a look.
