Foxcatcher (2014) non-spoiler Review Foxcatcher (2014) Directed by Bennett Miller 8/10 This is a true story that I was unaware of about the greatest brother team (Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo) to have success in Olympic Wrestling who join Team Foxcatcher lead by multimillionaire sponsor John E. du Pont (Steve Carell) as they train for the 1988 games in Seoul. I was unaware of this dark tale before seeing it so as well as being riveted by the performances I also did not know the events that were to come. I won't ruin it for those who also do not know the basics of this true story. The film itself is well made with a brooding score and anchored by a trifecta of superb performances. It is a nice grim slow burner with a bubbling undercurrent of menace that I was waiting to see if the cork would pop or not. All in all I would expect nominations come oscar time for the actors, make-up and perhaps the film itself and would recommend people to check it out.
