There is much to admire in the masterful filmmaking and superior performances on display, but it’s a tough film to digest for three hours straight.

Frankly, I was dreading Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of "The Great Gatsby," but I wouldn’t have anticipated that this master of gaudy excess had a genuine desire to do justice to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel.

If you had pulled me out of the theater one hour into Quentin Tarantino’s 'Django Unchained,' I would have raved. The first portion of the movie is utterly exuberant, full of life and the love of moviemaking.

Leonardo DiCaprio is not the first name that springs to mind as the embodiment of legendary FBI director J. Edgar Hoover—unlike, for instance, the title character in the upcoming remake of The Great Gatsby. I give the actor credit for his commitment to this assignment, but he’s still not quite right, especially if you’ve seen any newsreel footage of the bulldog-like Hoover. It’s more difficult to excuse screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and director Clint Eastwood for making such a dull, monotonous biography of one of the 20th century’s most commanding and controversial figures.
