In “J. Edgar,” we see an aging Hoover, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, dictating a memoir of his early career, beginning with the bombing of 1919 and progressing through the Lindbergh Baby Trial. Between depictions of dictated chapters, the audience watches a weathered version of Hoover try to hold onto power and polish his legacy during the; Kennedy, Johnson, and early Nixon; administrations.
This film humanized the historic power monger, by showing him at his most vulnerable. While Hoover was commandingly dominant in the professional realm, DiCaprio played him as being submissive toward his domineering mother, played by Judi Dench. We also see him as being awkward around women, as he constantly wrestles with his sexuality.

Oh, I loved the end of BSG. The idea that the fall of their civilization spawned the evolution of mankind here blew me away. Top that with the idea that "All Along The Watchtower" by, Jimi Hendrix has been part of our collective unconscious for the last million years, and it really keeps a guy awake at night.
I said it a year ago, conflicting goals aside, a leaderless movement can't last.

#17 - I'm not sure how justifying theft is "standing with the working people." I'm as working class as it gets, and the working people I know deserve their jobs because they're honest enough not to steal from their employers. The issue is integrity, NOT social class.
("I think it's ridiculous that a store that hands out free samples like it's nothing would crack down on a few pieces of tofu," said Said. "It's got to be something bigger than that.")
Uh, no, not quite. Samples are distributed to promote products. If a customer buys $6 block of Gouda, after sampling $0.03 to $0.05 worth, New Seasons sees a return on their investment. On the flip side, no matter what was stolen, the fact that he stole from his employer speaks to his character and New Seasons' ability to trust him.
That's as effed up as effed up gets. IF this is an accurate depiction of what happened, the officers in question need to lose their badges. GOOD GOD YA'LL!
