The Mule: Clint Eastwood's cloth-eared vanity project
The Mule (M, 116 mins) Directed by Clint Eastwood â??â?? After a six-decade career, Clint Eastwood has announced that he's not quitting yet. And that surprised me. Because The Mule, Eastwood's latest,and his first shift acting in a film he is directing himself since 2008's extraordinarily satisfying Gran Torino, really would have made a grand place to sign off. However, not necessarily for the right reasons. The story is based, extraordinarily loosely, on the true story of Leo Sharp, who was arrested at the age of 87 after a decade of driving cocaine and cash around the North American countryside on behalf of the Sinaloa drug cartel. Eastwood was charmed enough by the tale to employ his Gran Torino writer Nick Schenk to bash out a script. Which Schenk has done in a fashion that leaves little doubt as to why he hasn't worked much since his breakthrough in 2008.
