The 2014 retrospective continues this week with one of the more controversial films of that year and also it’s most successful financially! “American Sniper” was Clint Eastwood’s late-breaking entry into the Oscar race and it took the nation by storm by becoming the highest-grossing film of 2014. How does the film hold up today? What did we think of Bradley Cooper’s performance? The film’s politics? Its action scenes? Dan Bayer, Josh Parham, and I discuss all of this and more on this throwback review. Also be sure to check out our other 2014 reviews of “Selma,” “Ida,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Wild“, “Inherent Vice“, “Whiplash“, “The Imitation Game” & “Nightcrawler.”
