I've just read that Clint Eastwood is going to direct himself in a new film about an aging rodeo rider seeking redemption. At the age of 91.
Good on yer Clint !!!
I don't think he's got any limitations ....
Albert Finney's 'artist with a Thompson' scene from the Coen Brothers film 'Millers Crossing.' Bit of Coen poetical licence here as that 50 round drum magazine on the Thompson would give you about six seconds of continuous fire. (They made a 100 round drum, but that was a huge thing.)
PS ... and then there's the usual Carter Burwell soundtrack. As ever with the Coen Brothers ... Mr Burwell fires on all 12 cylinders.

One of the greatest openings of a film. I first saw this as a student in 1969 and was gobsmacked. Bare in mind there was no CGI back then, animation was done the old fashioned way. Pure Kubrick. (Best appreciated full screen and with a good sound system.)
I've always been a western fan. Not the 'ride into the sunset' polished westerns, but dark gritty productions like Soldier Blue, The Culpepper Cattle Company and Bad Company. When it comes to TV series I thoroughly enjoyed Deadwood, and this one, Hell on Wheels, which tells a far from romantic story of the construction of the trans-continental railway, which forged ahead with scant regard for anything in its way.
