The Most Powerful Man in the World
From director Clint Eastwood comes the drama "J. Edgar," starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. During his lifetime, J. Edgar Hoover would rise to be the most powerful man in America. As head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for nearly 50 years, he would stop at nothing to protect his country.

Through eight presidents and three wars, Hoover waged battle against threats both real and perceived, often bending the rules to keep his countrymen safe. His methods were at once ruthless and heroic, with the admiration of the world his most coveted, if ever elusive, prize.

As seen through the eyes of Hoover himself, "J. Edgar" explores the personal and public life and relationships of a man who could distort the truth as easily as he upheld it during a life devoted to his own idea of justice, often swayed by the darker side of power.

"...ultimately captivating.  Arizona Republic
"...the look of J. Edgar is spot-on.  Austin Chronicle
"...a feat of acting, from the inside out.  Entertainment Weekly

Editor's Note
Acclaimed actor Leonardo DiCaprio stars in Academy Award-winning director Clint Eastwood's richly detailed biopic exploring the life and career of controversial FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. For nearly 50 years, Hoover (DiCaprio) fought crime as one of the most powerful law enforcers in America. During Hoover's extended stint as Director of the FBI, however, his penchant for bending the law in the name of seeking justice and using the secrets of high profile leaders to gain personal leverage won him just as many supporters as detractors. Little did many other than his loyal colleague Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer) and faithful secretary Helen Gandy (Naomi Watts) know, however, that Hoover himself was a man with many secrets to hide. Josh Lucas, Judi Dench, and Stephen Root co-star in film written by Oscar-winning MILK scribe Dustin Lance Black.

Expert Review J. Edgar - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: The Other Chad Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 3/2/2012 6:32 PM
Director Clint Eastwood had a very tough sell with his biopic J. Edgar. The story of the very first director of the FBI was not greeted enthusiastically by either critics or moviegoers. This is the type of historical epic that is often expected to rack up Oscar nominations, yet the film didn’t earn a single one. Much of this can be explained very simply: the film is a jumbled mess that ultimately sheds little light on the importance and influence of J. Edgar Hoover. There are some interesting passages, but in the end it seems like the filmmakers just weren’t sure how to handle their subject....read the full review

Los Angeles Times
"[A] somber, enigmatic, darkly fascinating tale....J. EDGAR benefits from the convincing acting of key cast members..." 11/09/2011

New York Times
"Anchored by a forceful, vulnerable Leonardo DiCaprio....It portrays a 20th-century titan who, with secrets and bullets, a will to power and the self-promotional skills of a true star, built a citadel of information in which he burrowed deep." 11/11/2011

Hollywood Reporter
"[The film] tackles its trickiest challenges with plausibility and good sense, while serving up a simmeringly caustic view of its controversial subject's behavior, public and private." 11/03/2011

Entertainment Weekly
"DiCaprio does more than disappear behind steely glasses and prosthetic old-age makeup. He transforms himself in a feat of acting, from the inside out." -- Grade: B 11/18/2011

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "J. EDGAR is a classically made biopic graced with potent performances..." 02/01/2012

Film Comment
"Clint Eastwood's Hoover biopic cuts elliptically back and forth through a 50-year career of crime-busting and witch-hunting, while including some big-scene digital recreations....Solidly structured, emotionally and physically..." 05/01/2012

Los Angeles Times 9 of 10
J. Edgar is a somber, enigmatic, darkly fascinating tale, and how could it be otherwise? This brooding, shadow-drenched melodrama with strong political overtones examines the public and private lives of a strange, tortured man who had a phenomenal will to power. A man with the keenest instincts for manipulating the levers of government, he headed the omnipotent Federal Bureau of Investigation for 48 years. Though in theory he served eight presidents, in practice J. Edgar Hoover served only himself. - Kenneth Turan

Chicago Sun-Times 9 of 10
As a period biopic, J. Edgar is masterful. Few films span seven decades this comfortably. The sets, the props, the clothes, and details, look effortlessly right, and note how Eastwood handles the many supporting roles (some of them depicting famous people). These minor characters are all to some degree relating to Hoover's formidable public image. As a person or as a character, he was a star of stage, screen, radio and print; he was said to have the goods on everyone. People tip-toed around him as they might have with Stalin. It's a nice touch, the way Eastwood and DiCaprio create a character who seems to be a dead zone and make him electrifying in other actors' reaction shots. - Roger Ebert
