In Globe (July 8, 2013), Armie Hammer discusses a time when he was banging a girlfriend who piped up with this chilling bit of dirty talk:

"True love leaves scars—you don't have any."

She then promptly tried to stab him with a butcher knife.

I don't think I'd want to leave any scars on lovely Armie. Maybe just an anal fissure or three.

Armie Hammer is as dreamy as ever, as seen on the cover of Nylon Guys (July 2012). Promoting The Lone Ranger (no interest here...sorry, Armie!), he says of his propensity for doing his own stunts:

"I'm wearing a three-piece wool suit and leather gloves and getting dragged behind a horse! I had a great stunt double, but at one point, he was like, 'Do I even need to be here?'"

Armie Hammer is well cast as a prince in Mirror Mirror, yet another cutesy filmic take on a fairy tale. In his Entertainment Weekly (March 30, 2012) profile, he asserts he and his wife support themselves with no cash from his family fortune, discusses being terrified to audition for The Social Network and remembers having ringworm multiple times while living barefoot in the Cayman Islands, the infamous tax haven where his dad moved based on liking how it looked in The Firm.

First look at Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the titular masked man from Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger (Disney, May 2013). Armie's never looked hotter.

The Way They Were?: Reviews Of J. Edgar & My Week With Marilyn Comments (6)

I have yet to write about Madonna's W.E. because I've only seen it via test screenings, nothing official. But it's not the only biopic coming at year's end. In fact, there are so many similar pictures that W.E. is getting an awards-consideration release December 9 then not reappearing until February 3 so as to dodge the glut.

I had wildly different reactions to two of the other biographical films out there.

Leonardo-dicaprio-armie-hammer-j-edgarMy buddy, my buddy...

J. Edgar, directed by Clint Eastwood, written by Dustin Lance Black and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer, Naomi Watts and Dame Judi Dench, is a film I was curious about in spite of its odious subject, longtime, iron-fisted FBI god-king J. Edgar Hoover (DiCaprio). The film covers Hoover's era-spanning career as the country's loved/hated A-list G-man, from the birth of the FBI through Hoover's death during the Nixon presidency. For a film attempting to cover so much, it winds up with surprisingly little to offer by way of honest insight.

DiCaprio's old-age makeup was quite distracting at first but was overall passable, particularly when compared to that used on Armie Hammer as Hoover's longtime companion Clyde Tolson. Somehow, Tolson starts out younger and cuter than Hoover and winds up looking like something out of a Saturday Night Live sketch; just unbearably bad work on the makeup. Watts looks too old to be a young secretary in the beginning of the movie, but way too young to be a senior citizen by film's end.

Superficialities aside, DiCaprio is admirably committed as Hoover, but I found him very actorly and at times hammy. He comes off, more often than not, as a boy pushing hard to seem like a man. Gorgeous Hammer exudes a knowing quality that Eastwood unfortunately D74ryb8itr95rt5bdoes not reign in properly, leading to laugh-out-loud lines that shouldn't be. For example, it's pretty humorous when Hammer's Tolson fusses about the sartorial blunders of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz and a side-splitter when he sniffs that Dorothy Lamour (pictured with Hoover in the '40s) is a bit "camp" for him. If he gets an Oscar nomination for this after not 1getting one for The Social Network, that would be a travesty.

Watts has nothing to do and does nothing for the film—she's sleepwalking.

In stark contrast, the usually flawless Dench is way over the top as Mama Hoover, a cardboard cut-out of a taciturn mother who's so pushy even Norman Bates wouldn't have traded for her.

I think the biggest problem with this film is the script. After deservedly winning an Oscar for Milk, Dustin Lance Black turns in a Razzie-worthy blueprint this time, structured around Hoover dictating his self-aggrandizing memoirs to a series of young secretaries (all dudes, nudge-nudge). This set-up allows for too much telling and not enough showing, and makes the film's focus drift disagreeably between Hoover's most famous case (the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby), his weirdly asexual yet romantic relationship with Tolson (there is an aborted kiss, but otherwise we're supposed to believe they were inseparable but never fucked) and the origins of his rabid anti-Communism.

I'm as liberal as it gets, and I like that there is goss out there that Hoover was gay and/or cross-dressed, but I strongly felt like the gay stuff in the film (a convenient story about a childhood acquaintance of Hoover's nicknamed "Daffy" for "daffodil" who was bullied and committed suicide feels very It Gets Better) was questionable, and the cross-dressing was one of the most embarrassing things I've seen in a high-profile drama in years.

I wish I liked this movie, but then again, screenplay be damned, maybe it would've helped if the main character were not so thoroughly contemptible from start to finish.

J. Edgar (Warner Bros.) is out now.

A far more likable VIP gets the biopic treatment in My Week With Marilyn, directed by Simon Curtis and written by Adrian Hodges from the famous memoir by Colin Clark, who had the good fortune to be third director on The Prince and the Showgirl in the late '50s.
