"J. Edgar" last night; we were in full-hormone mode last night after dinner at an excellent steak joint, yet unlike someone above, I was more sympathetic of Edgar than awed by his power. Movie demonstrates nicely how desperate he was to hold on to his job not so much for the power but for the lack of any other gratification in his life. Films that cover nearly all of a man's life lose their dramatic arc and become too much like documentaries; that was the biggest problem with this film.
