CLINT EASTWOOD INTERVIEWED (not by me, unfortunately)

For those of you who have seen Million Dollar Baby and are interested in reading a very good interview with Clint Eastwood, check out the latest issue (Jan/Feb 2005) of Film Comment. The piece, as it appears in the magazine, was cut for space. But you can follow this link to the unexpurgated conversation between Eastwood and critic Amy Taubin (who also placed MDB at the top of her ten-best list).

SPOILER ALERT: For those who have not yet seen the movie but intend to, be warned that Taubin and Eastwood discuss the movie rather freely. So if you're intent on avoiding too much information, best to bookmark this link and save the interview until after you've seen Million Dollar Baby.

What a terrific article. It's fascinating to read how he thinks about acting, about directing--especially directing himself!--and all the other aspects of his work. It is kind of long, but I actually wanted more!
