February 21, 2019
With its unflinching depictions of brutalities, Eastwood's new western calls to mind the work of Sam Peckinpah. But Eastwood's cadences are slow, his antiheros rueful, his atmosphere murky and chilling.

The film has a kind of wise knowingness which may well mislead some people into thinking that its main aim is to debunk the western.

Unforgiven gives us something to think about -- and something to answer for -- and Eastwood was just the man to make it.

Impressive, laconic, revisionist western.

It's not a movie for kids, but it's a fine movie for any adult who doesn't mind thinking a little after the hot lead has flown.

No thrill comes cheap in Unforgiven. The West that it shows is Wild all right, but more like a dog than a party. That doesn't mean we can't enjoy being dragged along for the ride; the rougher the better, in fact, as every action zings with ricochets.

That's the truly subversive act at the heart of 'Unforgiven': Clint Eastwood is puncturing a Western mythology he helped create.

While not a pretty picture... Unforgiven is a magnificently realized work. In addition to Eastwood's fine, rough performance, Hackman and Freeman stand out.

Unforgiven is a stark western in slow motion, obsessed with reflection, not action.

Unforgiven brought the revisionist revenge film into the 1990s and, by extension, the 21st century.

Clint Eastwood's 1992 western Unforgiven earned the director his first Oscars, for Best Picture and Best Director.
February 16, 2016
A sombre, insightful, genre-reinventing western, directed by a filmmaker acutely aware of the western's history, its limitations and the dubious truths of its legends.
February 17, 2015
"Unforgiven" is a high-caliber movie, a gripping and haunting work of art that should finally establish Eastwood as one of America's best directors.
February 6, 2015
...perhaps the best argument for Clint Eastwood as a savvier, craftier and more complicated filmmaker than the one many consider him to be.
April 2, 2014
Eastwoods' best, most personal work as both an actor and director can be found in this dark and sombre western classic.
February 28, 2014
casts an unforgiving eye, from both insider and outsider perspectives, on the brutalities and hypocrisies of an 'enlightened' nation's Restoration period.
August 2, 2013
Realistic and thoughtful, Unforgiven has the pictorial sweep we've come to expect from the genre and the intelligence too long missing from it.
August 2, 2013
This isn't just a great Western. It's a great movie, no matter what the genre.
