The devil knows for devil, but he knows more for old

What else can be added to Clint Eastwood's wonderful film (and life) story?


What else can be added to Clint Eastwood's wonderful film (and life) story? While we look for the answer, he takes care of it and gives us “The Mule”. Classic-style cinema, with a compelling story and his classic hero fought with life, which no one composes like him.

Based on a real fact, whose article was published in the New York Times as “the 90-year-old Mule of the Sinaloa Cartel,” the film tells us the story of Earl Stone, an octogenarian broke in several ways who finds work transporting drugs.

Stone, a free and seductive soul, is dear to his friends, but great disappointment to the family. As well defined, he has been a lousy father and husband, and only his granddaughter holds hope in him. If anything was missing, it was running out of income. Until, unknowingly, he gets hooked up to make suspicious deliveries.

Bradley Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Laurence Fishburne and Andy Garcia add courage (especially the first two) to rank a film that ends up diving into the world of commitments and forgiveness. Alison Eastwood, his daughter (playing his daughter) and our compatriot Ignacio Serricchio, practically unknown in our land but with a very important role.

Ten years ago, in “Gran Torino”, he had said that it was his last appearance on the big screen in the double role of director and actor. Luckily he didn't do it. It says the phrase “the devil knows for the devil, but he knows more for the old man.” Mr. Eastwood is 88 years old, very well run.
