Foxcatcher — A creepy recounting of a real life sport drama — 8*/10

  • Story: You'll definitively be weirded out. There's a lot of uncomfortable situations, people that are just a bit off and events that you can't believe really happened. Everything feels slightly askewed, like looking through an imperfect glass pane. That being said, it is psychologically intense, it is hypnotic, and you just know something bad is going to go down at some point.
  • Style: It is just as boring as real life can be, but there's a surreal quality to these real life events that makes it difficult to just lump it with other biographical or historical piece.
  • Pacing: Slow, drawn out. Makes for an incredible mood, a bit creepy, almost suffocating.
  • Ending: Surprising. Not shocking, but really close to it.
  • Dialogs: Off putting would be the best way to describe them. 
  • Characters: You can really feel the depth and the realism.
  • Acting: Superb.
  • Known actors: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo.
  • Visuals: Large and impressive or dirty and scrawny.
  • Special Effects: Carell's face prosthetic feels unreal, but then again, I think it adds a lot to his character, it seems like a perfect match.
  • Score: Creepy in a subtle way.
  • Synopsis & informationhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt1100089/
  • Entertainment value: Good if you like the style.
  • Who is it for? Those looking for some psychological real life drama. Anyone else should abstain.
