Clint Eastwood is such a legend. He‘s 91 and still not only giving us good performances, but also consistently (mostly) good movies („15:17 to Paris“ being the exception).
This film is a fun and engaging character-driven road movie with for the most part pretty good performances. Not everything in the film works, for example the way Rafa’s mother was written was atrocious, but the relationship between Eastwood’s Mike and Minett‘s Rafa works perfectly and is a joy to watch. I can excuse one bad character if the heart of the film is this moving.
Cry Macho is Cinema for the Soul!
