J. Edgar

Directed by Clint Eastwood

Written by Dustin Lance Black

imdb USA 2011

Clint Eastwood has a deceptively simple formula for filmmaking:

Start with a great script. Work with a talented crew that you have known for decades. Hire talented actors and let them work. Work quickly. Go home at a reasonable hour every night. Finish the film on time and on budget.

It is the formula of a craftsman, the measure twice, cut once philosophy of a master carpenter. If Woody Allen is a film archaeologist, using film to peel back the bones of a city and Martin Scorcese is a crazed chef, blending ingredients that seem like they should never work together, than Clint Eastwood is the filmmaker as cabinet-maker, turning out solid, useful films built according to classical blueprints.

In this case, Eastwood takes us from 1919 to 1972 in the life and career of J. Edgar Hoover, but not in a straight line. »
