The Mule thrives in teasing ambiguity...For decades now, Eastwood has been one of the great interrogators of American social mores.The AtlanticDecember 21, 2018
This movie is as much a eulogy for a country that Eastwood sees as slowly crumbling as it is for the life Earl chose to lead.Detroit NewsDecember 16, 2018
A little nuance and it could have gotten there, but Eastwood's already moving on.Time OutDecember 14, 2018
