François, an ordinary factory worker, barricades himself in his one-room lodgings, after shooting dead another man.

Foxcatcher poster

It's a long list this week, but you could eliminate nearly all of the films and concentrate on just Foxcatcher and Rosewater. These two films are earning the vast majority of the buzz.
