Unforgiven is another western with horses and guns and all that shit.A hooker is with a john and she laughs because he’s got a small ‘pecker’.He loses the rag and takes out a knife and starts to do a bit of carving on her face.No great loss as she was really plain looking anyway.The scars will add character.The other 4 or 5 hookers decide to put up a bounty of $1000 to get the guy killed and his friend who was with him that night.Roll in Eastwood,he was a cold hearted killer some 11 years ago but his wife got him off the sauce and out of the killing.He’s now a pig farmer.But the wife is long dead and when a kid who idolises him asks him to help with the bounty he reluctantly agrees,more so for the money for his kids.They pick up Freeman to complete the troupe.He seems to be the only good shooter among. The kids blind and Eastwood hasn’t shot a gun in ages.They find the two guys and it pretty much goes to plan except Freeman freezes and decides it’s not for him and heads home.Just when the film was getting good it ends.As soon as Eastwood has a glass of booze he turns into the hard ass he was 11 ago and we learn it was the booze that fucked him over.Moral of the story-don’t drink.
