User Reviews: On one level, this film is a failure: It’s a fictionalized knock-off of the behind-the-scenes machinations of the making of "The African Queen" with Bogart & Hepburn directed by John Huston. This surface level is not so enthralling. On a second level, the level I believe the artists really wanted to put across, it isn’t so enthralling either. Nevertheless, they are to be commended for attempting something unusual: An effort to show the creative process — and the fears lurking within barring the fruition of art, often at great costs to health and personal relationships. In ranking Eastwood’s films, this film falls below "Unforgiven", "Million Dollar Baby", "Bird" or "The Bridges of Madison County", but the subtext here raises its status. A must-see for the serious artist or wannabe.
