UN­FOR­GIVEN (1992) GEM, 8.30PM, M, WESTERN

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Clint East­wood (above) cer­tainly knows his place in the pan­theon of cow­boy movies. By sub­vert­ing ev­ery rule of his leg­endary “man with no name” char­ac­ter, as well as the stan­dard clichés of westerns, he comes up with a tense and thrilling ride that ex­plores the dark side of hu­man­ity with ma­tu­rity. A re­tired gun­slinger (East­wood) re­luc­tantly takes on one last job, with his old part­ner (Mor­gan Free­man) and a young man (Jaimz Wool­vett) in tow. East­wood is in su­perb form and is matched by Gene Hack­man as the malev­o­lent small-town sher­iff. A rev­e­la­tion. ★★★★
