I was sold the first time I saw the trailer—Get off my lawn! I couldn’t believe it. Clint did it again! I’ve been a fan of his since I was a boy. Love his sarcasm and coolness.
Something I learned about him recently is that he’s introverted and a musician. His first job in Hollywood was digging swimming pools the old fashioned way.
If you liked Gran Torino, check out Harry Brown starring Michael Caine. It’s pretty much a British version of the same story, with Caine as a veteran pensioner living in a public housing area that’s been taken over by the same kind of thugs we saw rioting over there this year.
