About the Movie

Academy Award-winning superstar Clint Eastwood ("Million Dollar Baby," "Unforgiven") stars as a brilliant, flamboyant and erratic film director who becomes obsessed with hunting a majestic African elephant while preparing to film a movie in Africa. Gannett News Service gave this film four stars, calling it a "masterful work...a wonderfully entertaining, robust and fascinating film...Clint Eastwood's most daring and successful performance as an actor...superb entertainment." Loosely based on the writer's experiences with director John Huston while shooting the classic, "The African Queen," the movie also stars rising young actor Jeff Fahey ("Lawnmower Man," "Wyatt Earp") and Marisa Berenson ("Barry Lyndon"). Co-written by James Bridges ("Urban Cowboy," "The China Syndrome") and directed by Eastwood.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This material marks a gutsy, fascinating departure for Mr. Eastwood, and makes it clear that his directorial ambitions have by now outstripped his goals as an actor. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Oct 27, 2008

Fresh: The film is talky and often stilted. But Eastwood's compassion for the character, warts and all, feels genuine. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Oct 27, 2008

Fresh: Especially for those who have pegged Clint Eastwood too quickly as a masculine traditionalist, White Hunter, Black Heart is a movie to conjure with. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: An intelligent, affectionate study of an obsessive American film director... – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Another great film on film, and life...

With the necessary exaggeration for a character larger than life, another Eastwood pet project demonstrates a pure knowledge and execution of filmmaking. Excellent period Dolby Stereo LtRt

Bad Eastwood flick

I now know why I'd never heard of this movie. The dialog definitely didn't align with the actor. I'm a fan, but this was difficult to sit through.
