The brief but powerful investigation of Richard Jewell remains a stain on law enforcement and media. But in his eagerness to show how badly they transgressed, Clint Eastwood has prevented his film from being as powerful as it could have been.

The veteran director creates one of his best films in years with this powerful true story...
September 23, 2020
A mostly successful return to form for Eastwood that overcomes its questionable characterizations and flawed execution of its arguments thanks to great performances and an incisive look on heroism.

Richard Jewell was an ordinary hero who was never really afforded the opportunity to be truly ordinary or a hero.
September 17, 2020
Set in 1996, filled with brand name products, tense with worry but stuck at home, Richard Jewell is an accurate portrait of the U.S.A. Eastwood insists it hasn't changed much in twenty-three years.

If you like drama and the tut-tutting of government over-reach and media slander, knock yourself out, but there are other movies that don't trick you into cheering the budding incel.

An understated and captivating story that boasts a fantastic central performance from Paul Walter Hauser.

This is the sort of story Eastwood can tell in his sleep and, although the movie is undoubtedly solid, it often feels like there's an element of playing it safe here.

Eastwood's last years have been far from impressive. But his last movie has a fantastic actor that makes us want to see more of what he can do. [Full review in Spanish].
