N.Y. Times reporter Michael Cieply reported this morning that Clint Eastwood “growls his way” through Gran Torino and that a “a sweet,labbie looking mutt” in the film is more personable than Eastwood’s grumpy war vet Walt Kowalski. And David Poland says in song verse (a) “hang yourself if you had money on this film for the win,” (b) “I don’t know just what went wrong,” and (c) “Mister, we could use a film like Unforgiven again.”
