Top Ten Best Movies Directed by Clint Eastwood

Premiere Of Warner Bros. Pictures' "Trouble With The Curve" - Arrivals

6. Letters from Iwo Jima 

While Flags of Our Fathers showed the Battle of Iwo Jima and its effects from the point of view of the United States and its soldiers, Letters to Iwo  Jima tells the story about the Japanese forces that fought against American troops in order to hold the island for 36 days. While it can be viewed as a companion piece to Flags of Our FathersLetters from Iwo Jima is actually the better the film. It deals with more difficult material and more challenging character, and most importantly, it is directed through Eastwood’s authentically human lens.
