Unforgiven seems like a simple film, but it’s also a puzzle.  Much of it shows all the stories of the Old West to be lies.  But then Clint Eastwood’s character, Will Munny, after saying he’s done with killing and will honor his late wife’s memory, kills a room full of people without getting scratched even though they all have guns.  And we’re left with the question of why his wife fell in love with someone who was a mass murderer.  What are we supposed to think?  Why would Eastwood (also the director and writer) give us these questions?  What did you think of his character and of the movie?
