Though one of the greatest movie-stars and western presences of all-time, Cry Macho craves Eastwood’s retirement in a film with glimmers of hope lost in dust as it deconstructs masculinity, cowboy/genre iconography, aging, and its patriarch’s early projects. 5.2/10.
Plot Synopsis: A onetime rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder, in 1978, takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man’s young son home and away from his alcoholic mum. Crossing rural Mexico on their back way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman may find his own sense of redemption through teaching the boy what it means to be a good man.
