J. Edgar

It may be quite different when we list a series of events about J. Edgar Hoover, the powerful president of F.B.I. The events begin with the man who had been the head of that institution for nearly 50 years, starting to look at his career and personality unexpectedly.

September 26, 2013

In These Times
April 13, 2016
A large, self-important, incident-by-incident biopic crammed with luxuriant period detail, laden with old-age make-up and powered by meticulous but riskless acting.

Usually the tautest of directors, Clint Eastwood has gone all slack here, allowing his subject to get completely away from him.
