[6.00/10] Cry Macho (2021)

Cry Macho (2021)

Quick Review: The earthy tones, pale colors and barren scenery give a proper Western feel for this low-key road trip film with a romantic pit stop on the way back from MX to TX, but Eastwood is not particularly convincing in front of the camera, because of his late age, and though his character-with-a-mission doesn't share a genuine chemistry with the wild young boy, his relationship with the kind-hearted Marta is almost too sweet, and leads to a warm finale of the simple "Cry Macho".

I'd heard it was a bit slow, but still want to see it.

Alex, it was good slow, not bad slow. Eastwood always does a good job at pacing his films.
