J. Edgar

digitalbits.com
11 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar is a 2011 film that I was very slow to catch up on. Touted early as a title to keep an eye on, the film never caught fire and made few year-end "best-of" lists.

  • Summary: Hoover may have been the sweetest, kindest, gentlest man in the world, or he may have been a ruthless bastard; we wouldn't know from Eastwood's cautious portrayal of him.

J. Edgar Review

  • Excerpt: Ìóâè 43 J. Edgar dodges details. Well, maybe it doesn’t dodge them so much as it touches on them. The feud with the Kennedy’s is tapered off with a somewhat disingenuous phone call. His technical accomplishments are pushed into background activity.

J. Edgar (Blu-ray)

2 March 2012
  • Summary: It’s unfortunate that the writer admits to finding the character “indefensible”. He goes on to say that he attempted to recognize that villains don’t consider themselves villains, not realizing he’s being just as biased in that statement.

High-Def Digest
23 February 2012
  • Conclusion: 'J. Edgar' examines a controversial figure in American history with a keen, unbiased eye, and though Clint Eastwood's biopic never incites a passionate response, it's nevertheless a finely tuned, thoughtfully presented, and often absorbing piece of work that contains another first-rate performance...

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: I’m willing to bet that when someone hears the name “J. Edgar Hoover” that certain images of a man dressing up in women’s clothing might emerge. If that’s the case then this isn’t a fact and, more to the point, many of the things that surrounded Hoover are speculation at best.

  • Conclusion: J. Edgar got a cooler reception than expected. Though it's not a great film, I'd rank it on par with and maybe even slightly above Eastwood's previous two efforts ( Invictus , Hereafter ), which still puts it at the higher end of modern cinema.
