Subtle, even and carefully paced. Foxcatcher is lifted into the realms of great films by what it doesn't choose to do, rather than what it does. The plot and pacing shows fantastic restraint to let the actors carefully and honestly play out each character's arc to what becomes a startling conclusion after such measured pacing.
Each of the 3 main actors nail their performances and Carell is only let down by the obviousness of his prosthesis. He's terrific, as is…
Just amazing. Brilliantly seamless camerawork from Chivo and his camera operators and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the actors get to act at each other through entire scenes with no cuts. Like a truly camerafied piece of theatre.
I thought it got a little wayward in tone and direction near to the end but still totally enjoyed the ride.
Oscar fodder for sure.
