"Foxcatcher," is without a doubt my most anticipated movie of the year. There is so much to it, and the amount of buzz that has gone along with it has been amazing. Here's the story.
Foxcatcher is based on true events story about a wrestler named Mark Shultz who forms a relationship with his new benefactor and millionaire John du Pont. DuPont, who knows nothing about wrestling, except that he likes it, becomes close with Shultz, as he trains for the Olympics and World wrestling championships. What becomes clear after while is that DuPont is really more interested in Mark's older and more successful brother Dave. And how crazy and drug fueled DuPont really is.It's what causes Mark to have a semi break down, and leave his brother and DuPont together, which ends in tragedy.
This is by far my favorite movie of the year. First critics are right about the oscar buzz. Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo are all incredible in this. Even the supporting roles ( Sienna Miller, Anthony Michael Hall, and Venessa Redgrave) are all terrific as well. The screenplay is amazing and the directing is superb. You care so much about these brothers, that its heart breaking to know the road they are going on is bad. You want to yell to them... "Get out of there!"
Foxcatcher is the best film I've seen all year, with superb acting, amazing dialoge, and awesome directing. Foxcatcher gets an A++++++++++.
