Based on the bestselling novel by Marc Dugain, this original docudrama weaves unique archival footage within a fictional story and sheds a new light on J. Edgar Hoover. This film reveals the FBI director's battle to retain power from the Kennedy clan. From 1960 and 1963, two ideals of America come face to face and two sets of morals clash. Clyde Tolson, Hoover's right-hand man and secret lover, is the last survivor of this psychological drama. He recounts this intense political period when America's destiny has never been as dependent on one of the most powerful and mysterious figures of the time. Written by Anonymous

With an enjoyable satirical undertone.

With an enjoyable satirical undertone.

I'm surprised how few comments have been given so far.

Well entertaining for sure. And being "just" a TV movie, above average, no question. Positively to point out is the satirical undertone throughout the movie, what concerns the quite questionable character of the Kennedy clan. A lot of less than beneficial facts have emerged about the real background of JFK and his brother since their tragic death. Still surprising, how the iconic, unquestioned figure of JFK was able to survive till this day. But the movie puts also light on Hoovers debatable "qualities", especially in regards of his "informal" ties to the mafia. The use of real archive footage adds also to this movie. Well done.
