Eastwood’s impeccably crafted action sequences so catch us up in the chaos of combat we are almost not aware that we’re watching a film at all.
Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper” is both a devastating war movie and a devastating antiwar movie, a subdued celebration of a warrior’s skill and a sorrowful lament over his alienation and misery.
A great film, one of the best of 2014. That it was completely absent from the Golden Globes points to a wacky awards season. Could it be a “sleeper” at the Oscars? I hope so. 9/10
