Ponderous, emotionally chilly Oscar bait.

If this restrained '80s-set drama largely works despite pacing problems and all-too-readable thematic and psychological arcs, it's thanks to the superb trio of actors.

Once Miller lays all his cards on the table ... you realize you haven't been watching people struggling with the very real temptations of unchecked privilege, so much as fumbling blindly in a glib, gloomy satire of American exceptionalism.

Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum give superb performances in Bennett Miller's powerfully disturbing true-crime saga.

A superbly modulated study of a twisted mind with a career-changing performance by Steve Carell.

Foxcatcher is great at being an awards movie, and not so great at telling the story of what it's actually supposed to be about.

Foxcatcher nevertheless comes off as a particularly handsome bit of Oscar bait - with the movie, it often seems, designed to impress more than entertain.

The filmmaking is spare but incisive and, together with the performances, this film should dominate any awards conversation this fall.

I could dig, analyze and appreciate Foxcatcher for years. All of that being said, Foxcatcher is remarkable.

A positively harrowing and gut-wrenching true story that gets everything right.

...it feels like a calculated articulation of what a serious prestige picture should like instead of an organic and rewarding drama.

There's not a hint of fantasy in Foxcatcher and it's still the scariest monster movie of the year.

A surefire Oscar contender that should secure multiple nominations (especially for its performances), Foxcatcher is, at its core, about the risks, rewards and consequences of wanting to be great.

Bennett Miller has made what might almost be called an awards-bait exploitation film, except that he purges the material of sensationalism, and he does so in the most honest and artful way possible. He keeps it real.

It's an important, vital, vibrant film that gives new light to men who struggled so hard to find it in their real lives.

Often mesmerizing and occasionally frustrating, Foxcatcher is an accomplished blend of sports-themed drama and tabloid true crime that's cool to the touch.

You may not be prepared for the masterful way that Miller keeps us off-balance and uneasy, or for the gnawing sense of doom that gradually builds.

I did not know anything about the story of John du Pont before seeing Foxcatcher. Now that I know how it ends, all the tensions of the scenes before it have changed.

it does all the explaining it needs to--the trick is learning to listen the right way. That's what Foxcatcher's about. It's fantastic.

The director really hits his stride with a stunning portrayal of psychopathy and moral decadence in the unlikely environment of Olympic wrestling.

Some may not have the patience to stick with the film while it almost floats along, but for those willing to enjoy the remarkable performances and restrained direction, there is plenty to reward a committed audience.

Though anchored by a affecting and sullen turn by Channing Tatum, the movie derives its primary discomfiting power from Steve Carell in a revelatory performance as a monster of American wealth.
