The Mule

Another great movie directed by and starring Clint Eastwood.

Eastwood’s directorial style is typically easy to detect. He and Robert Redford seem to have an aura of ease that I can identify with.

Eastwood plays an elderly divorced man a bit down on his luck. He unknowingly becomes a mule for the Cartel transporting drugs. Very lucrative, he continues and starts sharing his new wealth.

Family issues, hiding from the law and a lot of hedonism fill the screen. A supporting cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Michael Pena, Andy Garcia, and Eastwood’s own daughter.

There is violence and a lot of swearing but also a very human story. Solid movie not for everyone but I enjoyed it.
