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 speak with directors Fanny Liatard & Jérémy Trouilh to discuss the duality of Paris captured on screen. Courtesy of Cinéarte and with the release of their feature debut Gagarine (2020) in cinemas here in The Netherlands, we explore how their magic-realist drama bridges the tensions between the romanticised dreamlike city and its neglected suburbs, united by a universal ability to dream and the importance of utopian images.
