Pretty good document
24 December 2017 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Lenny Maltin speaks of it as an average piece of work. I don't agree. This is a very interesting TV movie, which shows aspects of the FBI boss that Clint Eastwood did not in his 2011 movie starring Lenny Di caprio. Of course Trat Williams plays sometimes in the Brando GODFATHER way, especially in the final scènes when he fires Sullivan. You think here a s a kind of Alan Pakula manner of filming. Louise Fletcher is pretty good too as the Hoover's mum character. Yes I recommand it.
