A portrait of the last cowboy Hollywood legend dives into the 65 years of an extraordinary career in Hollywood, highlighted iconic films like “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, as well as “Million Dollar Baby”, “Mystic River” and “Gran Torino” all the way to “Cry Macho” in 2021. It is no small task to cover more than 60 years of cinema history, especially when it is trying to survey with such breadth and diversity: TV star, international star, controversial icon, contested director, filmmaker with a capital F, Eastwood has been through it all, experienced it all, and it is first of all this romantic trajectory, this true American pastoral that the documentary wants to tell with all the passion it possibly can.
