Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie
April 3rd, 2007

Not Quite Enough

This is a good film that tells the story of Howard Hughes, the eccentric (to say the least) billionaire recluse that fascinated Hollywood for decades.

Leonardo Dicaprio is very good as Hughes, but his baby-face sometimes betrays him. He is a good actor, 'The Departed' proved that, but he needs the right roles.

Cate Blanchett rightfully won an Oscar for her portrayal of Katharine Hepburn. She not only gets the accent of the woman, but the weakness behind that famed strength.

The film often relies too much on the visual rather than the emotional depth. Scorsese is recovering after the terrible 'Gangs of New York' and he will follow this up with the great 'The Departed'. He is learning how to be himself again and this was a good step forward.
