Clint Eastwood: An American Master

Even ignoring his stellar film acting career, Clint Eastwood is hands down my favorite film director. He's been directing films since the early 1970's, but I personally got acquainted with his directing work when I saw "Unforgiven" (1992) and the vastly underrated "A Perfect World" (1993), both of which he starred in.

As if "Mystic River" and "Million Dollar Baby" weren't good enough, the release of "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters from Iwo Jima" have, in my mind at least, brought Eastwood to Kurosowa-like status. Eastwood is a true American master.
