This is a special breed of movies. Clint Eastwood demonstrates that he is not only an all time great actor, but a ‘director’ worthy of that title also. This film/documentary if you like, was highly thought provoking, showing the inner depths of the workings of J. Edgar.
The film was captivating from the start. Whilst being lengthy, it needed to be in all fairness to show in detail the trials and tribulations of this particular individual. It shows Edgar’s ambition as a young individual, his closeness to his mother, and his love for another man. It was a very endearing movie to say the least.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and highly recommend it as a must watch. You won’t be disappointed, a worthy film for an award I believe.
