Biopic of former head of the FBI, J Edgar Hoover, touching on his alleged homosexuality and cross-dressing tendencies as well as a sentimental trip through the defining moments of his career. This subject matter is handled sensitively, and the film is well acted (especially by DiCaprio in the title role) but overall feels unfocused and lacking the type of authority that made Hoover himself such a formidable figure in American history.
