Abridged Book Description

Clint Eastwood's second film as director-star (after Play Misty for Me) relocates his Spaghetti Western persona into an American gothic morality tale... With at least as much borrowed from Luis Buñuel as Sergio Leone, this is a funny, brutal, scary movie, daringly weird in its mixture of Western and horror themes, and shot through with acid self-analysis.
