      Dirty Harry: A Relic of a Bygone Era

      Watching the 1971 cop thriller Dirty Harry at a time when feminism and anti-racism become increasingly mainstream is indeed a nerve-racking experience. Directed by the earlier B-movie director Don Siegel, the 102-minute film, which portrays the cat-and -mouse-chase of a San Francisco police detective and a serial killer, is almost an explicit celebration of police brutality and male dominance. Although wildly politically incorrect, it is hard to ignore the movie's immediate box...

      Violent pleasure

      In 1971. Saying goodbye to the radical 60s, American society is once again on the verge of disintegration. Turbulent social movements and radical thoughts have disappeared. In the midst of the value retained by the youth subculture, homosexuality, women and black protest movements, conservatism headed by Nixon has once again risen. A glorious era is also gone, followed by a worst and craziest era. Martin Luther King, Kennedy, and Malcolm X were assassinated one after another. People...

      City Cowboy Biography-"Dirty Harry" series impressions

              In Eastwood's career as an actor, the most glorious thing is to starred in cowboys again and again in westerns. However, as a genre, westerns also quickly declined after their climax. From the 1960s and 1970s, Western films showed signs of decline. By the late 1970s, they were dead and alive. At the same time, the big screen gradually entered the age of tough guys. The tough guys in the cities used fists and heavy weapons to make Western films The cowboy's chic and little...

      Is Harry dirty?

      Many shots in the movie are well used. The perspective of the sniper rifle and the telescope, and the darkness of the characters into the night enhance the realness and tension of the film; Harry’s lines and ending lines in the bank robbery are two scenes in the water. The death scene echoed from the beginning to the end; when Harry stepped on the villain’s legs in the stadium to question the whereabouts of the hostages, the camera gradually zoomed out, dense fog enveloped,...

      Fun things will never go out of style

      This set of films is indeed entertining~ Fun things will never go out of style.

      I originally expected this to be just a set of compact police and gangster movies that can be cool. It turned out to be a very dark humor (not an ordinary knowing smile, but a hilarious laugh) and a genre movie with no plot or even a little offbeat.

      In terms of the plot, one sentence can be over: in San Francisco, the wives are unlucky and hard to explore the West, Dirty Harry VS the...

      One star is given to the old master Dongmu. As the first part of this series, it is fuller, more interesting, and more classic than the later works, but now it seems that it is not...

      The prosecutorial and judicial organs in the United States are really outrageous, which will inevitably lead to the transformation of the spirit of the western cowboy into a personal force to maintain justice and continue to coexist with "law and order". The clothes are covered with dust and blood, but they only have the name "dirty". You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya,...

      From western cowboys to hot-handed police detectives, Dongmu's image of a solitary hero is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and his partner's death or injury has also established his fate as a lonely star. The dirty here is not only to suppress violence with violence, but also to oppose the system. The government's thinking, finally throwing the police badge is...
