Fifth about The Seventh

J. Edgar

J. Edgar: compelling, rich, delicate but ultimately the ponderous pace weights. It can’t be denied, however, the quality of the writing here: the structure, simplifying the events of 50 years by using very few of them, allow for a very deep, moving and humane view of the character. Leonardo DiCaprio gives yet another wonderful performance, but that’s to be expected given his own and Clint Eastwood’s pedigree. His score is again a perfect match for the movie.
