On Invictus

Leave it to Clint Eastwood to make a superb film that depicts important social issues, tells an important story based on actual events, and entertains throughout. Morgan Freeman was brilliant, probably his best role ever. Matt Damon fit the role perfectly but unfortunately it didn’t call for much from him, range wise.

Eastwood has mastered the art of movie-making, in my humble and in no way qualified opinion.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Invictus by William Ernest Henley
