Foxcatcher

Foxcatcher ★★★★

A real slow burner of a movie that I really enjoyed. Very economic film making - all the characters keep their feelings and motivations very close resulting in a movie that is actually a very good example of 'show don't tell' (although if you can't cope with slow burn movies I wouldn't recommend it as there isn't actually much story) No time is spent building up character or backstory so the film just powers straight on efficiently telling this one specific story.

Intense and claustrophobic at times its more of an atmospheric character study than an intense thriller
