We enjoyed the movie from a historical standpoint - and wished there had been even more substance
about a remarkable time in history and Mr Hoover's influence. The initial interview we saw that convinced us to see the movie said they concentrated on the "early" years and didn't concentrate on the "rumors." It didn't feel that way during the movie when the emphasis seemed to be on the long time relationship with his assistant.
Throughout the movie we were shown a younger J Edgar and an older one - and the makeup for the "older" versions of the cast was so bad and distracting it took away from what was being presented.
This movie will automatically have a small audience because of the subject matter and the way in which is was done will result in an even smaller audience.
