We selected Foxcatcher as our first movie to see in 2015. This is the sort of movie that you are glad you saw because it is so well done, but on the other hand is so hard to watch at times that you just want it to hurry up and be over. The kind of movie that makes you look up stuff when you get home because you can't believe you don't recall when it was happening in real life. And you have questions. Questions that need answers.
I am not going to dig into all the underlying themes. I am not one for over analysis. As a whole, let me just say that it's a stunner. As in, it left me feeling stunned. Incredible performances by Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo. As much as I wanted to shake it out of my head as we were leaving the theatre, I still can't stop thinking about it. Anybody else out there see it?
