Fifth about The Seventh

J. Edgar

J. EdgarJ. 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. DiCaprio gives yet another wonderful performance, but that’s to be expected given his own and Eastwood’s pedigree. His score is again a perfect match for the movie.
