Eastwood: Film an 'Anti-War Statement'

While speaking at the Producers Guild Award Nominees Breakfast on Saturday, Clint Eastwood hit back at critics of his latest film American Sniper. "The biggest antiwar statement any film" can make is to show "the fact of what [war] does to the family and the people who have to go back into civilian life like Chris Kyle did," Clint Eastwood said. The film has faced heated criticism as some believe it portrays the Iraq War in a positive light. It has also dominated at the box office, raking in more than $100 million in its first week at the box office.
