A tough recommendation. Outside of the acting, there is little I can say about it. Steve Carell is nearly unrecognizable in a role that might not get the proper recognition because it borders too closely to parody. Yet he is so effectively creepy, that you can't help but cringe every time he is on screen. Channing Tatum demonstrates some acting chops but lives in the shadow of his on-screen big brother played by Mark Ruffalo. Everyone in the cast was fantastic; however, Ruffalo really shines in a film where the actors don't save their best for the close-ups. The dialogue is minimal with stretches of uncomfortable silence that effect the pacing. The tension builds and builds to a climax that should be obvious even if you weren't familiar with the story. The buildup and the pacing make the film drag on long after the initial giggles at Carell's nose turn into recoils.
Great acting, otherwise not much there.
I didn't have an idea that this movie was going to end like that, I didn't have knowledge of the story of this two brothers, With the way that the movie was going I was scared that something of bad was happening in the end, and it happened.
The three main actors were fantastic, Carell and Ruffalo got the nominations but Tatum it is at the same level with those two.
Ruffalo´s character is the most likable one, Carell super creepy, he got out of his usual typical roles to get an nomination and he worked for it, but it is not going to win but at least he is nominated.
I like more the movie Moneyball, I didn't see Capote but Bennett miller knows how to make good movies.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
