Not to mention the eighteenth time that the multi-Oscar-winning “Million Dollar Baby” conspiracy around the world has moved Eastwood from the Pantheon to the filmmakers’ Olympus. The dedication of the late boxer Maggie (Hillary Swank, majestic), chapronized by this old Grizzly bear Frankie Dunn (Clint, older than Sachem), wraps up in her Irish bathrobe and flows into the ring like a divine chapter; Evidence of an astonishing staging of fluidity and grace, capturing three movements in two shots, the purity of a platonic love like the fever of a body in battle: all this we know wholeheartedly, we envy, oh, how, for seventeen years the film has escaped success.
They see in it a digest of Clint Eastwood’s best addiction: the paradoxical movements of boxers, the live construction of the opposite family, the beautiful feminine, slightly sad but intense, warm warmth that the little biotope soaks into the darkness, and it spreads and viscose. Total masterpiece, we tell you.
