Summary, etc.: J. Edgar Hoover was 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.
"As a period biopic, J. Edgar is masterful. Few films span seven decades this comfortably."--Roger Ebert.
"I like the way DiCaprio and Hammer capture the little things - the byplay, the moments in which two men are 'playing' FBI agents, partly for show, partly for real."--Chicago Tribune.
"J. Edgar shines a probing beam of light on a man who was widely feared, often disliked, but rarely understood."--USA Today.
