Invictus, directed by Clint Eastwood, theatrical release poster

Invictus (2009)(DVD)  Directed by Clint Eastwood (Unforgiven (1992), Mystic River (2003) Million Dollar Baby (2004), Letters from Iwo Jima (2006)), starring Morgan Freeman, Matt Damon and others.  Invictus, a biographical/sports drama set in post-apartheid South Africa prior to, and during, the 1995 Rugby World Cup, though perhaps moving, and rightly so, and with Eastwood’s characteristic fine attention to detail, not to mention rather good performances, of course, by Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon, nevertheless leaves one a little disappointed.  Perhaps it’s only due to the heavy-handed use of “inspirational” music.

See our post on the film The Informant! starring Matt Damon.

We recommend that  you buy your DVDs and Blu-ray Disks.  Have a great personal film library..  Here are links to amazon.com:
