To “celebrate” the release of Clint Eastwood’s latest film Cry Macho and maybe his final swan song, Hugo & Tom get together to discuss their very different relationships to this Hollywood ‘icon’. On the surface this may appear to be a review of one man’s career in film, but perhaps it reveals something about our own attitude to cinema. Is this the Clint Eastwood spin-off show Hugo has always wanted…?

After its release on the 17th of September on HBO’s streaming platform and a theatrical release in the U.S., Cry Macho (Clint Eastwood, 2021) will get a theatrical release here in the Netherlands on the 28th of October.

On our next episode

Join us next episode as we take a look at the Dutch film industry itself, both the past and future of this country’s film exports. Inspired by the new Paul Verhoeven: The American Years program at LAB111, it was only right that we review how the film industry has evolved through the years, and the many obstacles young filmmakers still face today, that is perhaps limiting the potential of the Netherland’s movie business.
