Story :

Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino; an unassuming picture shot during a post-production lull on his elaborate period piece Changeling; was quietly rolled out at Christmastime 2008; whereupon it proceeded to blow away all the Oscar-bait behemoths at the box office and win its 78-year-old star the best reviews of his acting career. Both film and performance are consummately sly--coming on with deceptive simplicity; only to evolve into something complex; powerful; and surprisingly tender. Just as Unforgiven was a tragic reflection on Eastwood's legacy in the Western genre; Gran Torino caps and eloquently critiques the urban heritage of Dirty Harry and his violent brethren. And on top of that; the movie becomes a savvy meditation on America in a particular historical moment; racially; economically; spiritually. Call it a "state of the union" message. But call it that with a wry grin.
The latest Dirty Harry is actually a grumpy Walt: Walt Kowalski (Eastwood playing his own age); widower; Korean War veteran; retired auto worker; and the last white resident of his Detroit side street. It's hard to say who irks him more--his blood kin (a pretty lame bunch) or the Hmong families who are his new neighbors. Kowalski's a racist; because it has never occurred to him he shouldn't be. Besides; that's the flipside of the mutual ethnic baiting that serves as coin of affection for him and his working-class buddies. Circumstances--and two young people next door; the feisty Sue (Ahney Her) and her conflicted brother Thao (Bee Vang)--contrive to involve Walt with a new community; and anoint him as its hero after he turns his big guns on some ruffians. The trajectory of this may surprise you--several times over. Eastwood opted to film in economically blighted Detroit--a shrewd decision; but it's his mapping of Walt's world in that classical style of his that really counts. Every incidental corner of lawn; porch; and basement comes to matter--and by all means the workshop/garage that houses the mint-condition Gran Torino which Walt helped build in a more prosperous era. This is a remarkable movie. --Richard T. Jameson
