Overview

Warner Bros.' feature-filled, double-disc Special Edition DVD of the Clint Eastwood Western Unforgiven illustrates the evolution of the DVD. When first issued, the DVD of this multiple-Oscar-winning film of 1992 was a bare bones affair, with no special features or documentaries beyond picture and sound quality. But now the knowledge that DVD popularity is greatly enhanced by extra features has prompted many reissues, such as this two-disk Special Edition. The first disk contains the film in a stunningly beautiful letterbox widescreen version that preserves the aspect ratio of the original film, and a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround sound soundtrack that puts the range in home on the range. Disk one also contains an insightful movie commentary by film critic and Eastwood biographer Richard Schickel, plus Eastwood film highlights and an awards list for the film. Disk two includes an Unforgiven retrospective ten years later, a "making of" feature about the film, a short feature about Eastwood, and a John Cusack-narrated biography of the film's star. But the real gold on the disk is the inclusion of an ancient episode of the popular 1950s TV show Maverick in which an impossibly-young Eastwood starred.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
Appearing two years after Kevin Costner's Oscar-winning megahit Dances With Wolves, Unforgiven helped spur a mini-revival of the moribund genre in the 1990s that included Posse (1993), Tombstone (1993), and Sharon Stone's "Man With No Name" turn in The Quick and the Dead (1995). Written by David Webb Peoples in 1976, the script was bought by Clint Eastwood in the early '80s, though he waited until he was old enough to play psychotic antihero William Munny as a grizzled veteran of a bloody past, rather than someone closer to the younger Eastwood of Sergio Leone's "Dollars" trilogy and Don Siegel's Dirty Harry (1971). Upon its release in August 1992, seven years after Eastwood's previous western Pale Rider, Unforgiven was praised as an uncompromising revisionist masterpiece, showcasing Eastwood's visual command of western landscapes and locations and his perceptive yet critical view of the genre's mythology and his own place in its "machinery of violence." After deliberately pacing the reemergence of Munny's pathology, Eastwood shrouds the climactic shoot-out in cinematographer Jack N. Green's dark shadows and heavy rainfall reminiscent of film noir, rendering Munny's return to Eastwood's lethal star form unsettling in its victory. Unforgiven became an unexpected serious hit in a season of popcorn movies, eventually grossing over $100 million and reviving Eastwood's star standing after a series of late '80s flops. After winning several critics' prizes, it became one of only a handful of westerns to win the Best Picture Oscar; Eastwood's status behind the camera was finally acknowledged with a Best Director statuette.

    Squint with Clint

    I'm not a big Western movie fan but this movie was just amazing. Clint Eastwood is unbeatable when it comes to making movies that are dark but make you really think.

    A Brilliant Film

    I hate usual westerns but this movie is much more than that, it is a feeling multileveled tapestry woven by characters and ideas rather than the furthering of the exciting plot. The charactors are reminscent of something I would right, especially the character of English Bob, a fine film!

    Eastwood delivers a classic, mature western for the ages

    This must truly be one of the best westerns ever made. Clint Eastwood is no stranger to this genre, but he approaches it differently this time around. Eastwood portrays William Munny, a former outlaw who is reluctantly called back to his guns by the ''Scofield Kid'', to serve as a bounty hunter. This is not your typical ''Dirty Harry'' action, this Eastwood film deals with killing on a higher, psychological level. It's also a deep character study, where William Munny realizes how hard it is to actually forget his former ways. Gene Hackman won an academy award for his portrayl of Little Bill, the town sherrif, who again creates a riveting character, creating a man who is somehow somewhat likeable even though he's really a vicious person. Morgan Freeman also stars in this classic western, a story based on moralities and justice. The film also focuses on the impact on killing someone can have; what it can do to your soul. It also contains an ending scene that simply cannot be missed. This is Clint's best picture, and the academy apparently thought so too, as it was awarded best picture of 1992, along with best director for Eastwood. And to quote an older man who was in the same theater as me when this film was shown, ''That was a truly great western, maybe the best I've seen since ''Shane'' in 1955.''
