Use the comments section to discuss any Clint Eastwood movies you wish. Keep in  mind that he started out as an actor and later transitioned to director and producer. Many of his later works were directed and produced by his own production company.

  1. I think Letters from Iwo Jima was the one I was trying to think of where alot of people were pissed at Eastwood for glossing over Japanese brutality towards prisoners of War during WWII, calling it pro-Japanese propaganda.
