Critic Reviews for The Eastwood Factor

  • I imagine that director Richard Schickel is a huge Eastwood fan, but the narration sounds more like a marketing piece than a retrospective at times.

  • This is not a biography. It's a retrospective of the man's work, mainly as an actor and a director and mainly for the Warner Bros. studio.

Audience Reviews for The Eastwood Factor

    This 90-minute documentary on the career of legend Clint Eastwood focuses in on his directorial work at Warner Bros is just interested because I'm a huge fan of Eastwood. As with most documentaries by Richard Schickel, he lets the act himself tell the story so we get Eastwood going one-on-one with the camera and discussing his films, his way of shooting things and other bits of trivia including his golf game. It's good to see the former actor turned director looks back at some of his lesser known works and discuss why he made them and how he feels about them today. The documentary also covers some more interesting grounds including Eastwood taking us on a trip to some of his sets and how they look today.
