Aviator, The (2004) 
The Aviator review
3.5/4 stars

A businessman Howard Hughes (Leonardo DiCaprio) is busy making a new movie and hires Noah Dietrich (John C. Reilly) to run the Hughes Tool Company. In Year Three, he makes sure Hell's Angel's gets made with additional sound. Mortgage Tool company is sold to keep the movie going which eventually becomes a hit. He asks Katharine Hepburn (Cate Blanchett) to play golf and purchases Transcontinental & Western Air (TWA). Other interests include Faith Domergue (Kelli Garner), then actress Ava Gardner (Kate Beckinsale). Pan American Airlines President Juan Trippe (Alec Baldwin) ensures that his airline will monopolize the market. Some good lines from Ava Gardner - "Nothing's clean, Howard. But we do our best, right?" Hughes - "I care very much about aviation."

One of the best scenes were the realistic XF-11 crash, test flights and the senate hearings. DiCaprio shines and Blanchett radiates with stunning performances. Gorgeous costumes and set pieces for the locations indoors and outdoors alike. Cinematography and score were picturesque and grandiose respectively. Though some essential parts of his life were not depicted such as the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, last marriage, and more, the film entertained nevertheless. The Aviator is a well crafted biography drama that entertains despite its length with themes of OCD, passionate of one's dreams and ambition.
