SATURDAY J EDGAR
11.20PM, TDT ★★
This curious biopic of FBI founding director J. Edgar Hoover sidesteps provoking the extreme reactions the subject freely welcomed throughout his long career. The one factor sure to maintain interest is a carefully nuanced portrayal of Hoover by Leonardo DiCaprio. Though often buried beneath several layers of latex jowls DiCaprio never loses his grasp of a notoriously slippery character.
