Di Caprio nails Edgar J -- to the cross

user
"J Edgar" by Clint Eastwood starring Leonardo Di Caprio as Hoover the anti-Red obsessed faggot G-man.Very artfully lensed in Rembrandt like chiaro-oscuro and meticulous attention to period detail (the 20s, 30s 40s, etc)Di Caprio's physical transformation in the film is a masterpiece of maquillage such that he is not even recognizable as himself in the latter stages of the central character's lifetime. This is a light year better than Dicaprio's ridiculous impersonation of Howard Hughes a few ye...

They don't have money to make it happen, but they are here because they believe in what they want to do enough that they believe they can make...

This means that he doesn't have the option to go back and re-edit films. "I accept all my errors, and my films have many of them." You have to accept that the "child has a stutter, a squint, a limp." The great filmmaker delivered many gems and to a packed house of filmmakers and asp...
