J Edgar (2011)

J Edgar was brilliant. J Edgar was powerful. J Edgar was very nasty and unpleasant.

For a man of such contradictions, the collaboration between conservative Clint Eastwood and LGBT activist Dustin Lance Black pays off.

We get a biopic that's both professional, historical, as well as personal without dipping into hagiography, whitewashing, or sensationalism.

Watch for: Crazy good acting from Leo DiCaprio and Arnie Hammer.
