Clint Eastwood + Leonardo DiCaprio + True Story + Epic Scope + Tricky Accent + Aging = Oscar.
Agree? It's difficult to deny. And despite nobody having seen the film, some pundits are placing this at the top of the Oscar contender pile for next year. After seeing the trailer (below, via Trailer Addict) I cannot help but agree. However, old Clint has been a little disappointing of late. It seems that the older he gets, the more movies he makes. His last movie I really enjoyed was Million Dollar Baby, and that was 2004. Since then he (aged 81) has churned out Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, Changeling, Gran Torino, Invictus and Hereafter. That's like one a year, for an 80 year old! Crazy shit. But yes, J Edgar does look good. See below.
