With noirish lighting and most of the running time spent inside offices or cramped domestic rooms, Eastwood keeps the film claustrophobic, sometimes unpleasantly intimate.

J Edgar Hoover, at least as presented here, was not a particularly interesting or likeable individual. It gets boring quickly.

The Hoover material is ugly and very American, and it might have made an authentic monster story. But the picture offered is muddled, cautious, and at cross purposes.

A large, self-important, incident-by-incident biopic crammed with luxuriant period detail, laden with old-age make-up and powered by meticulous but riskless acting.

Although Hoover's luster faded as his career went on, Eastwood's movie seems wan from the start.

It's a deeply silly movie. American history as kitsch, played out like a drag show.

A pleasing, intelligent film happy to describe Hoover's behaviour as monstrous but too balanced and searching to damn him as a monster.
