J. Edgar Hoover is a name I know and recognise very well, but I didn't actually know why he was so recognised. Something to do with America, yeah, but that was about it. Turns out he did a helluva lot!

And that's what the film is about. It's basically Hoover (Leonardo DiCaprio) looking back on his life and career; mainly, two important things. One, the fact that he created the FBI as we know it today and made it (and himself) a powerful American entity. And two, the fact that he never got married and had a very close relationship with his right hand man, Clyde Tolson. It's whether Hoover should be revered or ridiculed for what he did in life that director Clint Eastwood focuses the movie on.
