“Was ever a biopic this frantically compressed? More to the point, was there ever a biopic that made more exuberant use of such compression, jamming enough burning questions, disputed issues, and just plain slanderous rumors into 112 minutes to generate a kind of tabloid satori? The first time I saw Hoover it seemed like a demented comic book, telling a different story on each hilariously bizarre page. But with time it looks more like a profound distillation of the craziness of American political culture and public mythology.”
Geoffrey O’Brien, Film Comment (Jul/Aug 2011) [Read More]
