Fifth about The Seventh

Dirty Harry

Dirty HarryDirty Harry: Don Siegel’s film tells a story that today is very recognizable (in part, because of this film, truth be told); it’s also a very simple one, featuring two single-minded characters facing each other. Neither is deeply written, nor given much of a motivation for the manner they act; they are old-fashioned (not always in a good way) forces of nature, and that makes this film a very exciting experience. Clint Eastwood knows how to play this sort of role down pat. DoP Bruce Surtees captures the San Francisco locations nicely. Lalo Schifrin’s varied musical score is enjoyable.
