Film Review - J. Edgar

Much like The Iron Lady, this is one of those political biopics that's generated interest more for its central performance than story or plot. And I'm someone who finds Leonardo DiCaprio, like Tom Cruise, rather samey as an actor. Sometimes his performance is acclaimed, sometimes it isn't, and I usually can't tell the difference. Here, at last, I have seen a unique range in his performance that does stand out; and I do mean in a good way.
