Such a disappointment

"What's important at this time is to re-clarify the difference between hero and villain."

The word "okay" is the most apt adjective for 2011's J. Edgar, Clint Eastwood's unambitious but handsomely-mounted biopic of one of the most interesting men of the 20th Century. The direction is okay and the acting is merely okay... Apart from lavish sets and (mostly) stunning makeup, nothing s... read more

Almost completely different to the true story.

With perhaps the most successful actor turned director behind the camera and featuring one of the most popular actors in this current era, there seemed like there was nothing that was going to stop this becoming a huge success! Despite that there are various references that the film consists of that is beyond anything than Eastwood or DiCaprio have been part of, expectations were still high. Plus,... read more

Even with all the surprises that have characterized Clint Eastwood’s twilight film years, with their crepuscular tales of good and evil, the tenderness of the love story in “J. Edgar” comes as a shock. Anchored by a forceful, vulnerable Leonardo DiCaprio, who lays bare J.

As the face of law enforcement in America for almost 50 years, J. Edgar Hoover was feared and admired, reviled and revered. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career and his life.

Clint Eastwood Films: Director - Ranked (36 movies items)

" It isn't the completely masterful and powerful film I dared to hope for, but it is nevertheless really good. If you're willing to accept the fact that this is a jumpy film that focuses more on J. Edgar Hoover as a person, and his various relationships with different people, and not specific details on specific events in his life, you're in for a treat. It doesn't go so clearly into to much details of events in his life, just mentions it, but in doing so Eastwood manages to create a highly inter"
