Movie Review – The Mule

 

Movie Review - The MuleClint, how do you do it? Year after year, for how many years now? 50? 60? Do you ever get tired? Is it ever hard to drag yourself out of bed and face the cameras? I ask these questions because after seeing The Mule, I have to accept the fact that you are not just human, but superhuman. To not only produce, but to direct this magnificent piece of work, no mortal man could do that at the age of 88. For that reason alone you should be rewarded with a Best Actor nod from the awards community.

The movie was a very good flick. It was even paced, well written, and of course well directed. We got to know Earl fairly well, but not any of the other characters…but you know, we really didn’t need to. This was all about Earl.

We did get a heavy dose of ‘family commitment’, but that’s what gave the movie its backbone. Watching Earl as he drove around the country wasn’t going to make for a good story. By putting Earl’s occupation aside and looking at the man, not the mule — that’s what made the movie.

So get some rest Clint; I think it’s going to be a busy awards season for you.

Grade: A

About The Peetimes: I have designated the 2nd Peetime as the preferred break because of the length of said break: you may take 4 and a half minutes to get back to your seat.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Mule. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

  1. Clint Eastwood is amazingly talented; no one would argue that. But he does a lot of depressing dramas. Can you think of anything comedic or sweet natured he’s done?

    1. A couple of movies come to mind: Any Which Way But Loose and the sequel, Any Which Way You Can, are pretty funny C.E. movies and Bridges of Madison County is charming. Also, Space Cowboys, is good, plus, it has a dynamite cast.

      Thanks for the comment and I hope I’ve given you some good options.
