Editors Note
Note In Clint Eastwood's acclaimed Western, Little Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman), a sadistic, dictatorial sheriff, enforces gun control on a tiny frontier town, doling out his own brand of due process as he sees fit. When he denies justice to the prostitutes of the town brothel, one of whom has been slashed by a client, the women hire Bill Munny (Eastwood), a reformed gunslinger, to gain vengeance. However, Munny must contend with his new moral code in the face of revisiting the life he left behind. Eastwood's directorial masterpiece also stars Morgan Freeman and Richard Harris.
Plot Summary
Summary Clint Eastwood's tenth western and sixteenth directorial effort explores the darker side of the myths of the old west. When retired gunslinger Bill Munny accepts a $500 offer to shoot two men who viciously knifed a prostitute, he discovers just how difficult it is to escape his past as a notorious outlaw.

Review "Nearly every year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences faces some amount of controversy over its choice for Best Picture. But occasionally, the Oscar goes to a film that is, without a doubt, worthy of that honor. Unforgiven is just such a picture - a gripping dissertation on the nature of violence and Clint Eastwood's directorial masterpiece...The brilliance of Unforgiven lies in the perfect pairing of a sublimely crafted screenplay - which Eastwood left virtually untouched - and a director with the right sensibility to handle the material...Unforgiven is often labeled a revisionist Western, and while this is true, its strength comes not from its spin on the specific genre, but from its dramatic impact."

Review "The film reflects a passing era even in its visual style. The opening shot is of a house, a tree, and a man at a graveside. The sun is setting, on this man and the era he represents...If Clint Eastwood had not been a star, he would still figure as a major director, with important work in the Western, action and comedy genres, and unique films like ""Bird"" (1988), his biography of the saxophonist Charlie Parker, the love story ""The Bridges of Madison County"" (1995), and the wonderful ""A Perfect World"" (1993), which seems to be about a hunt for an escaped convict, but seems oddly distanced from the chase, and more concerned with the values and histories of the characters. It has the elements of a crime picture, but the freedom of an art film. ""Unforgiven,"" too, uses a genre as a way to study human nature."
