Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven (1992)
”It’s the first Western that called into question what it means to kill a man. Before, it was taken flippantly…. Unforgiven was about how killing will affect your mortal soul.”

Sergio Leone’s Duck, You Sucker (1972)
”It’s not considered PC today because Rod Steiger plays a Mexican. [When I saw it] I thought, ‘Who is this amazing guy?’ I looked at the credits and couldn’t f—ing believe it.”

Clint Eastwood’s Pale Rider (1985)
”I stole a little bit from Pale Rider this year. At the end of the movie, he’s run out of bullets and he has to reload his gun. Without looking down, he changes the cylinder. I do that in episode 5.”
