The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Foxcatcher”

By Matt Neglia 

Last year, we did a podcast retrospective series on the year 2015 (the year before NBP launched) which was met with an ecstatic response from all of you. We decided to continue that this year with a retrospective of 2014. We have already reviewed  Best Picture nominee “Selma” & Best Foreign Language winner “Ida” and now we are taking a look at what was supposedly the number 9 film for Best Picture that year but did not ultimately receive the coveted nomination, “Foxcatcher.” Starring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell & Mark Ruffalo in three transformative and extraordinary performances, we examine the themes of the tragic true story, the work by all three leads, Bennett Miller’s direction, the film’s awards season run and more! Joining me for this podcast review is Josh Parham, Amanda SpearsDan Bayer & Danilo Castro.
