J Edgar – Trailer

Portraying the lush period details we have come to expect from director Clint Eastwood, the trailer for his latest effort, J. Edgar, is certainly beautifully realised, wonderfully embodying the period.

Despite this, the trailer left me decidedly cold; even the excellent cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts and Judi Dench among others, isn’t enough to really get me excited.

Depicting the tenure of J. Edgar Hoover as director of the FBI, Eastwood’s film looks set to depict both Hoover’s early and controversial later career.

I have yet to see a Eastwood directed film that I haven’t found to either be over indulgent or overly saccharine – perhaps his latest will be the exception.
