‘Foxcatcher’ With Channing Tatum And Steve Carell Is a Solid A

November 14th, 2014 9:10pm EST
Foxcatcher
Honestly, I had no desire to see this film. I'm not a big wrestling fan. Steve Carell, even though I think he’s talented, doesn't really get me into the theatre. Plus, I'm not a Magic Mike fan, so Channing Tatum doesn't do it for me, but all of my critic friends have been saying it is a movie not to be missed. So, I've check it out.

Background:
The film comes from director Bennett Miller, who is loved by critics. He did Brad Pitt's Moneyball and Capote, both heavily adored by the Academy, so it is no surprise that Foxcatcher will probably do very well this awards season. Bennett also re-te...
