CutPrintFilm: Episode 39 // The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Foxcatcher, History of the World Part 1
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has taken theaters by storm! We discuss the issues with breaking one story into two movies and how that works (or doesn't work) for The Hunger Games. Then we discuss the powerful new film Foxcatcher, based on the true story of billionaire John DuPont 's murder of Olympic gold medalist wrestler Dave Schultz. Continuing in our Mel Brooks director retrospective, we're talking about the often flat, rarely funny 1981 film History of the World Part 1. As always, we wrap things up with our weekly movie recommendations.
