The Mule


Clint Eastwood’s most recent (and quite possibly his last) acting and directing jobs. I recall the story of two grannies who were arrested smuggling huge quantities of heroin from Mexico into the U.S. Because, I mean, who would suspect these nice little old ladies? This is a true story of an old man who worked as a drug mule for the cartels. He is eventually caught, of course (or he’d likely still be doing it), and is lucky that the drug lords didn’t have him killed. It’s an okay movie, but nothing really special.
