GREENLIGHT #108: Letters from Iwo Jima (with "High Plains Drifter" and "Play Misty for Me")

Ann and Les know there's value in Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) but they just wish they didn't have to see it. It's Clint Eastwood's second film in a year about the WWII battle of Iwo Jima but this time from the point of view of the Japanese. Ken Watanabe plays their leader General Kuribayashi as he stoically presides over the devastation of his troops and Kazunari Ninomiya plays the lone soldier who isn't interested in pride and tradition but would prefer survival. It's good but it's gory. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommend seeing Mr. Eastwood's second film as a director and one in while he also stars called High Plains Drifter (1973.) Simply, he's a man (or is he?) out for revenge in a small-western town. Ann goes back a little further to recommend Eastwood's directorial debut. He plays a late-night radio disc-jockey in a happy relationship with a girlfriend played by a very young and innocent Donna Mills but who gets himself involved in a brief affair with an ardent caller. The caller, however, played by the ferocious Jessica Walter, didn't want it to be so brief and so trouble ensues in Play Misty for Me (1971.)
