DiCaprio does a fine job of staying in character (including his East Coast accent), and if his makeup as an older man isn't completely convincing, the dark palette employed by cinematographer Tom Stern throughout the movie (even a daytime scene at a racetrack finds most of the spectators' faces shadowed by their hat brims) makes that much less apparent. As for Eastwood, he has long since established himself as a master of his craft, and although the lengthy J. Edgar has its tedious moments, this is an engaging, admirable film. And while Hoover was almost totally humorless, the movie isn't; it's unlikely that the scene in which Hoover receives the news of John F. Kennedy's assassination while secretly listening to an audiotape of King having illicit sex really happened, but it sure is entertaining. --Sam Graham
He also had a long-time relationship with a man but it is not clear if he actually participated in any actual homosexual activity.
A film about a controversial and prominent figure in American history should have been more compelling than this one directed by Clint Eastwood.
I didn't like the movie due to the fact that is was way too long and super boring with way way too much focus on his choice of sexuality....
I had high hopes for this movie but found this be a really dry and disappointing. The plot moved slow and the movie was long.Published 11 days ago by PondDog
From a historical perspective, it was interesting because J. Edgar Hoover was such a prominent figure in history, but this is a movie, not a documentary. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Zeubushi

Decent acting, just a lot of unverifiable interpretation to the historical facts in this movie.Published 1 month ago by Stan
