Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!

What constitutues as a great movie? Of course, there are a list of things one follows, almost checking the list as you go along! This list includes acting, cast, production, story line, etc.

Produced by Annapurna Pictures abd Likely Story

However, if you put all those check boxes to one side, I firmly believe what constitues a good movie is the fact that you think about it long after you viewed it. What makes is a great movie is whether you would see it again.

The Foxcatcher, in my opinion, is a great movie. Not only has it had me thinking about it all weekend, it would also be a movie I would watch again.

Steve Carrell as John Du Pont and Channing Tatum as Mark Schultz

The story line is one which all aspiring athletes dream about. What would happen if you were given the opportunity where all you had to do was train and compete in your sport. Everything else is taken care of! You have a furnished house, food, electricty, water, and access the the best training facility you can imagine. Anything you need, it is granted to you. And the only thing you have to think about is: Winning!

Like all fairy-like wishes, there is always a catch. And slowly, one is drawn into a spider web that is weaved to catch the nimblest of foxes.

The Foxcatcher is based on the true story of John du Pont, Mark Schultz and David Schultz. It is a psychological thriller which will have you questioning motive throughout the movie. It has a few segments which do not fit completely in the storyline and you almost feel cheated for missing some parts of the movie which should have been there, but were not.

I would give this movie 4 stars out of 5.
