    I enjoyed Moneyball more then the other two. ( Haven’t seen The Cruise). Foxcatcher was my vote though.

    I admire his low budget, “The Cruise” and still remember parts of it.

     

    I detested Capote, EXCEPT for Clifton Collins Jr. He’s the MVP here. Not, imo, mumble-mouthed, clay-faced Hoffman.

    Foxcatcher was almost unwatchable for me. I found, several pop-corny excuses to leave my seat during this airing.

    That leaves Moneyball. Sure do love Pitt’s perf…..

    Inspite of this I admire Bennett Miller. He “tries” stuff. He’s no absolutely ‘conventional’ director, and my fingers are crossed for his next project(s).

    Never saw The Cruise, but his other three films I adore. 

    I will say Moneyball, then Capote and then Foxcatcher even though all three of them are great films!

    I totally agree with you on the fact that Collins was the MVP of that film. It still baffles me that he didn’t get sufficient awards attention. I thought Hoffman was great in the role, but there was no doubt in my mind that Collins stole the show. I personally picked Moneyball from the list, because I found the other two were pretty tonally flat, though they made me admire how confident he is as a director. I haven’t had a chance to see The Cruise, but it’s on my list.

    I have seen all four and while The Crusie and Capote are excellent, Foxcatcher is his dark maserpiece. It’s haunting, chilling, and an artisticly brilliant film with amazing performances, writing, directing, cinematography, production design, costumes, and of course that make up. Moneyball is just good nothing special

    I don’t love any of these movies, but Moneyball is the one that works better.

    Easy pick here. Moneyball is his masterpiece. A sports movie of the ages (from the performances to the script to the score). It’s a shame he was snubbed for Best Director. My second favorite movie of all time.

    Definitely Moneyball for me, though I’m imagining a lot of that has to do with the screenplay.

    I haven’t seen The Cruise or Capote (I own Capote on Blu-ray however it’s a part of a double feature with In Cold Blood). But, between Foxcatcher and Moneyball, while I really liked Foxcatcher my vote is for Moneyball.

    Capote, which I was expecting to just be a great lead performance in an okay movie, ended up being a really well-rounded and fantastically dark film. Foxcatcher comes second, what an amazing trio of actors in that. Moneyball feels like his most crowd-pleasing film, which is fine, but I prefer his dark stuff. It’s still great though. All three of those films have made my top tens in their respective years (Moneyball and Foxcatcher just made the lists, but Capote is my favorite film of 2005).
