Gran Torino (2008)

This film derives its greatness from Clint Eastwood.

I thought the film was realistic. Not just with plot, but with the acting and the setting.

I've been watching many movies without knowing what they are about prior to watching. If anything, I can always have the pleasure of watching the movie with knowing what it is about prior to watching, by watching the movie a second time. In any case, I'm glad to not have known what this movie was about prior to watching. I believe by not knowing, this movie got more exciting as the plot developed.

Another thing I liked about the movie was its use of earlier parts of the film. In general, a movie doesn't always execute this plot technique well, but I liked it in this movie. I guess the idea is for every scene and detail have a significance to the plot.
