Foxcatcher puts on display fantastic acting talent from its three leading stars...talent most audiences didn't realize they were capable of. But in trying to reach emotional depths and explore the vast realm of identity, the film opted for very dry narrative over a savory inspirational piece, sacrificing much needed entertainment value in the process. With a lot of thought, patience and empathy, a viewer can walk away at least understanding the story if not enjoying it. However, if you find you're bored after the first 15 minutes and hoping it'll pick up, I have to warn you, it doesn't get much more interesting than that.
It is so impressive to see these two comedy buffs put there all into roles that are some comedy but mostly depict dark and depressing themes. The result is a film that is charming and entertaining... among the best of independent film this year.
This film was the highlight of my VIFF experience. Whiplash puts so much passion into the story it tells...from the above and beyond performances to the extremely tense storyline all the way to the abundantly satisfying conclusion. The cheers and standing ovation at the end of our sold out gala screening were very much deserved.
Gone Girl is nothing but pure thriller entertainment from start to finish not just because the source material a solid premise for a film or because this is right within David Fincher's wheelhouse or even because the stellar performances from the entire cast was completely believable, but because the style in which this story is told aligns all of these facets in a manner that is utterly mesmerizing.
