Unforgiven (1992)

Oscar-winning 1992 Western directed by, and starring, Clint Eastwood as a retired gunslinger with a lawless reputation he'd rather forget. Co-stars Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman, who earned himself an Academy Award for his performance. Ranked as the fourth-best Western of all time by the American Film Institute in 2008.

Content with the crop-farming life he shares with his wife and kids, William Munny tries to live a peaceful existence like the rest of the folk in the town of Big Whisky. When a rampant cowboy viciously cuts up a local whore, the brothel ignores Sheriff Bill’s (Hackman) impotent reaction by putting a price on the attacker’s head. A young bounty hunter by the name of ‘The Schofield Kid’ fancies the offer, as does Munny. With his wife gone and his crop-tending skills lacking, Munny reluctantly goes with the young buck for one last kill…

Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor (Gene Hackman) and Best Film Editing at the 1993 Academy Awards. Best Supporting Actor (Gene Hackman) at the 1993 BAFTA and Golden Globe Awards. Best Director at the Golden Globes 1993.

A most entertaining western that pays homage to the great tradition of movie westerns while surreptitiously expressing a certain amount of skepticism.

belongs to a tradition that includes such giants of the genre as Mann, Boetticher, Peckinpah and Hawks.

That implacable moral balance, in which good eventually silences evil, is at the heart of the Western, and Eastwood is not shy about saying so.

Ironically, the ultimate Western of all was made decades after its hayday. This is captivating for all, not just fans of the genre.
