I watched "Coogan's Bluff" a few weeks back. I know I had seen it a couple of times as a kid as it is a classic Eastwood marathon afternoon movie.

Coogan's Bluff has some interesting how things change scenes dealing with the police therapist character that caught my attention. The whole sequence with her starting in the squad room with the perp on to when she goes on a date with Coogan is darkly hilarious to watch with modern eyes as it is so sexist.

Hmm. Wrongfully accused middle aged white dude vs. the government *and* the lying media. Seems likely to make everyone mad.

Thankful it's not a McVeigh movie

How did Magnum Force get a vote in this poll, but not Sudden Impact?

I wondered why Jewell was trending.

It gets a little sappy near the end, and the big interrogation scene where Jewell pushes back isn't really credible, but I thought this was pretty absorbing for the first hour-plus. I say that as a non-fan--first Eastwood film I've seen since J. Edgar, which was a complete waste. I see Kathy Bates got an AA such things go, surprised Rockwell and/or Paul Walter Hauser (Jewell) didn't get one. Liked John Hamm, too, even if (or maybe because, I don't know) he turns into Don Draper now and again, especially when he asserts control right after the bombing.

Certainly could have done without all the Confederate flags, a reminder that this is chair guy, after all.

The level to which Eastwood clearly believes the script's worst tendencies is properly balanced by just how far Hauser goes toward making Jewell a credibly unlikable, suspicious person. This is likely Eastwood's best since Iwo Jima.

Not surprised or even particularly disappointed it went nowhere at the b.o. tho.
