as in: “Anchored by a forceful, vulnerable Leonardo DiCaprio, who lays bare J. Edgar Hoover’s humanity, despite the odds and an impasto of old-coot makeup, this latest jolt from Mr. Eastwood is a look back at a man divided and at the ties that bind private bodies with public politics and policies.”
