After puttering then seeing the “J Edgar” film, himself came home to touch up paint. I stitched here and there. The quilting on the blue quilt is like, but a very lite version, of this quilting on the “House Quilt.”
J. Edgar Hoover, as portrayed by Clint Eastwood, was a very righteous and selfish man. Eastwood gives us a slow and darkened painting of Hoover unmitigated by any good he might have done as founding director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Wikipedia says, “Hoover is credited with building the FBI into a large and efficient crime-fighting agency, and with instituting a number of modern innovations to police technology, such as a centralized fingerprint file and forensic laboratories.” My opinion is that the Hoover FBI reign also echoes with paranoia, irrationalities, secrecy, lies, hatred, and back stabbing.
Both G and I will go see the reflective “The Way” again, but not this film.
