Gran Torino

Gran Torino

In what might be his last role as "hardcore, bad-ass mofo," Clint Eastwood delivers a subtle, simple story that lets him show off his acting and directing skills equally. Gran Torino ($16 DVD; $25 Blu-ray) is a low-budget gem that merges working-class grump-turd Walt Kowalski with Detroit's Hmong population, and does so in a way that keeps your eyes glued. Though it didn't garner any Oscar nominations like so many of his films do these days, it's worth watching if for nothing else than Ol Dirty's mean squint and the American muscle car eye candy.
