What's it going to be like? Will it portray JEH (Leo di C.) having an actual sexual/romantic affair with his protege and constant companion Clyde Tolson (armie Hammer), or will it avoid being explicit about it? I've heard both things.

I dont think it will be too sexually graphic with eastwood directing it. Wouldnt mind seeing hammer and maybe dicaprio as nude as possible though. Leonardo hasnt got nude since total eclipse i believe. He looked like a 14 yr old boy nude which didnt do it for me. He needs to show his junk now.

Stick with the Larry Cohen version.

Clint Eastwood is over-rated as a director. Actors love him, because he mostly let's them run the show on his sets. I've seen enough clips, and the trailer for J. Edgar, and the make-up is terrible! Just. Terrible.
Leo's accent is wrong. An inferior imitation. Hoover was a very evil little bulldog of a man. The late Vincent Gardenia was the best Hoover I've ever seen. I love Armie Hammer. His performance will likely be the only thing salvageable from this mess.
They can campaign all they like, but I really don't think it is a proper Oscar contender.

Best thing about it was Armie Hammer.

Did J. Edgar die in disgrace?

I thought Lindberg killed his own baby.

No. Nixon wanted him out, but failed. Hoover died in office.
Nixon was disturbed by social unrest. He suspected that activists behind protest movements, marches, riots, etc., were directed by foreign agents or powers. Nixon pressed Hoover to have the FBI find out who was behind it. Hoover came back to Nixon and said his agents had found no such evidence. Nixon was not pleased.

I've spent most of my life hating Hoover.

I liked the Aviator. Is this an interesting movie as well?

It's interesting, R13. Not a great or even a very good film, but it does try to explain how would someone so deeply closeted deal with it.

Well, i'll maybe check it out this week. Ty R14.

Was J.Edgar a closeted homo? Really?

J. Edgar was just barely in the closet. He appointed his boy friend Clyde Tolson associate director of the FBI. They were constant companions, both on and off duty. They even vacationed together. Hoover allowed Tolson to keep his FBI job far past retirement age. When Hoover died, he left his entire estate to Tolson. You do the math.

'J.Edgar' is not a boring movie as some of you might think that it is. It is a very interesting film based on true events and i like the way Clint Eastwood put emphasis on the drama of the situation. It's not just a movie about politics. It's closer to drama.

I saw it too, finally. A very good one. It's not boring at all, i agree R19.

It was tedious.
The writing has no aim and Leonardo is very community theater in this. He just can't play grown men convincingly.
