J. Edgar Hoover kept dirt files on eight pres­i­dents in his nearly50-year ten­ure as FBI di­rec­tor, mak­ing him one of the most feared men in US his­tory. Clint East­wood’s biopic de­liv­ers many com­pelling in­sights into what made Hoover tick, with Leonardo DiCaprio mas­ter­ing a dif­fi­cult role. Spe­cial credit to Naomi Watts as J. Edgar’s loyal sec­re­tary and Judi Dench as his fright­en­ing, con­trol­ling mother.
