J. Edgar Blu-Ray / DVD Combo Review



Synopsis: Leonardo DiCaprio (Inception, Blood Diamond) stars as J. Edgar Hoover, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for nearly 50 years. Hoover was feared, admired, reviled and revered, a man who could distort the truth as easily as he upheld it. His methods were at once ruthless and heroic, with the admiration of the world his most coveted prize. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career and his life. Oscar Winner Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino, Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven) directs an all-star cast including Naomi Watts (21 Grams), Armie Hammer (The Social Network) and Oscar Winner Judi Dench (Shakespeare in Love) as Hoover’s overprotective mother.

Review: J. Edgar Hoover was one of the most colorful figures in recent American political history.   This new biopic, directed by the legendarily dark director Clint Eastwood.  This film is moody, long and at times dry.  On the other hand, its also absolutely flawlessly presented and perfect for the subject matter.  DiCaprio delivers an amazing performance as Hoover and shows the multi-faceted character in his best and worst lights.  We highly recommend this one.

The special features on this blu-ray include: J Edgar: The Most Powerful Man in the World
