The 11 Best Clint Eastwood Movies

In a career spanning six decades, the 91-year-old actor has achieved a revered status in Hollywood as one of the most well-known celebrities both in front of and behind the camera.

With Eastwood's newest film, Cry Macho, having been recently released on HBO Max and in theaters, we thought we'd take a look back at the actor-director's career so far, looking at some of his best films, and providing information about where they are currently streaming.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

A very serious case could be made that any one of the Man with No Name Trilogy entries could have earned a spot on this list, but ultimately, you can't beat the trilogy's third and final installment, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

The Beguiled

The Beguiled remains the most out-of-character role in Eastwood's lengthy filmography. For that alone, it's almost certainly worth your time watching.

Dirty Harry

Director Don Siegel's fourth collaboration with Eastwood, Dirty Harry was an overwhelming critical and financial success, with the film establishing many of the tropes and characteristics associated with later police drama films

Play Misty for Me

It was an interesting spin for Eastwood to take in his career and one that resulted in a genuinely good thriller.

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot

It's an entertaining movie that might not have the same exposure or popularity as Eastwood's other well-known films, but it certainly should.

The Outlaw Josey Wale

Critically praised upon its initial release, the movie was widely acclaimed for its performances, soundtrack (which received an Oscar nomination), and its non-stereotypical treatment of Native American culture.
