Consensus Comparison: Foxcatcher November 15, 2014

Another busy week. 10 movies, plus a belated roundup of Maleficent. High scores this week are the first two films by Josephine Decker, both of which opened simultaneously yesterday.

The release of Johnnie To’s Don’t Go Breaking My Heart 2 is surprising for numerous reasons, the biggest one being that the first film in the series never got distributed in the U.S. You’d think it would wiser to release the earlier film before the sequel.
