Top Ten Best Movies Directed by Clint Eastwood

12th Annual AFI Awards - Reception

10. Changeling

Changeling had everything going for it before it came out in 2008: intriguing premise, A-list Hollywood star in Angelina Jolie, and a solid  director with Eastwood at the helm. However, Changeling was the Oscar-worthy film that people were hoping it would be. While critics noted how gorgeously shot each scene of the movie was, they did have gripes about the story (which focused on a mother doing everything she could to find her missing son), which they believed relied too heavily on conventions and cliches too often.
