Movie Description:
Based on the book, "Cry Macho" stars Clint Eastwood as a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder who, in 1978, takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man's young son home and away from his alcoholic mom. Crossing rural Mexico on their way back 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. —Warner Bros.

    "The picture revolves around an American filmmaking couple who retreat to the island for the summer to each write screenplays for their upcoming films in an act of pilgrimage to the place that inspired Bergman. As the summer and their screenplays advance, the lines between reality and fiction start to blur against the backdrop of the Island's wild landscape." —Screendaily

    In 1983, Oliver Nicholas, at thirteen, is well-poised to enter the precocious teenage world of first-sex, vodka and possible-love in New York City when he is traumatized by the stroke of his housekeeper (and only true maternal figure), a sixty-five-year-old Chilean woman named Aida. What was supposed to be an exhilarating and somewhat fearful rite of passage - diving into the exciting, fast-paced world of first experiences - quickly becomes skewed by an incomprehensible depression, and a house of interior horrors. Surrounded by women - his untraditional, Spanish, photographer mother (more interested in the role of confidante than mother) his sister, a comedic, door-slamming tormentor, marked by her parent's divorce; and Aida, his silver-haired emotional focal point on the verge of death in Lenox Hill Hospital - Oliver struggles to maintain his role as "man of the house" and his sanity. With his best friends, Nicholas Pinto, Raul Pinto, Valerio, a chain-smoking, nunchucking, grandiose artist; and Nick, a cynical, foul-mouthed, jokester, Oliver struggles through attacks of mania, drunkenness, first love, betrayal, migraine-inducing masturbation, virginity, and the loss of an imaginary friend . . . hoping to survive this uniquely-New-York baptism by fire. —SC


A slow, gentle sort of road picture.

"Cry Macho" is a pretty amazing film that in some ways reminds me of "Mackintosh and T. J.", Roy Rogers' last movie that he made when he was elderly. Both films are about aging cowboys who befriend kids who are about 13 and both have a very slow and deliberate pace....which is all you really should expect from aging actors.

Clint Eastwood directed and stars in this story. It begins with Mike (Eastwood) being asked by his boss (Dwight Yoakim) to go to Mexico City to bring back the boss' 13 year-old son who has been living off and on with his mother. I saw off and on because the boy often just wanders the streets because the abuse is so bad at home. The mother, at first, agrees to let Mike take the kid but later she changes her mind...apparently just to be a jerk! But because of the abuse, Mike takes the boy north...which isn't an easy thing because the mother is rich and has thugs looking for Mike and the kid. To make it worse, the kid is very street-wise and wild...and it seems doubtful he'll stay with Mike for long.

The film seems like at times there isn't much in the way of script....just a lot of small talk and small moments. This is NOT a complaint...and I actually liked these moments. The acting and direction really helped to carry the movie for me.

By the way, the film was not actually filmed in Mexico but in New Mexico...near Albuquerque (in Belen and Polvadera) .

I liked it...

"Cry Macho" is a Drama - Western movie in which we watch a former rodeo star going from Texas to Mexico City to take and save the son of a friend of his fro his alcoholic mother. On their journey they face many difficulties and obstacles but they have to surpass them in order to reach their destination.

I have to admit that I am a fan of Clint Eastwood and his movies so, I had high expectations from this movie. Despite its simple plot Clint Eastwood who directed and produced this movie presented it in a very good way without creating any confusion or plot holes. His interpretation was also very good as Mike Milo and he succeeded on presenting the bond that was created between him and Eduardo Minett who played as Rafo. In addition to this, I have to admit that I enjoyed the interpretation of Eduardo Minett and I cannot understand why some people in the reviews say that he was not good at all. Lastly, I have to say that "Cry Macho" is a nice movie and I recommend everyone to watch it especially the fans of Clint Eastwood. I am not saying that "Cry Macho" is the best movie of his but another good movie to spend your time with.

Clint Eastwood can barely walk anymore. He looks like he needs to be in a care home.

The bad: Clint Eastwood simply looks too old now to try and play strong macho cowboy characters. He can barely walk. I mean really, look how Eastwood is shuffling around the sets, trying not to fall...

More bad: there is a lack of chemistry between the leading kid actor and Eastwood.

Even more bad:the story is slowburning, bordering on tedious many times.

It would be advisable to retire gracefully, because Eastwood's macho character looks painfully ridiculous at his age...
