Review: The Mule (2018)

Solid character study

Clint Eastwood never was one for wearing anything on his sleeve. This is a solid and compelling piece of cinema from a master who knows his craft. From a deft, efficient setup, we follow Eastwood’s aged protagonist into moral peril, but admire his fundamental decency. That he is the author of his own misfortunes gradually dawns on him, leading to a satisfying dramatic denouement.
