Foxcatcher is a different beast, just sitting there with nothing to say.
June 18, 2016
In the back hour, the music quietly turns the screws, and Miller stops letting the air in, and I realized that a knot had formed in my chest.

There is an unspoken emptiness that hangs boldly over Foxcatcher, which is sure to be one of the subtly darkest films made by a major Hollywood studio this year.

In the end, nevertheless, it's the three male leads that bring the human story to the foreground; to me, Channing Tatum's proto-Homo-Sapiens wrestler/caveman is startling to watch.

There are times in this brilliantly acted and understated psychological drama when it seems very little happens at all, but when the lights go up you're left reeling by the culmination of events that have quietly unfolded.

The kind of timeless, rib-sticking drama that moviegoers often lament the loss of, only to ignore when they actually come around. Don't make that mistake here.

Don't be fooled: Foxcatcher is not a film about the sport of wrestling. Well, it is, but it is so much more than that.
January 29, 2016
Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo all give their best film performances so far.

Steve Carell casts a brilliantly ominous shadow in this taut thriller based on a true story.

[Miller] is equally adept at portraying the peculiarities of wrestling here, and how those physical moves -- beautifully choreographed and executed -- sync with deeper psychological currents.
December 11, 2015
The results play like a parable about greed and its distorting impact; but, directed with sombre assurance by Bennett Miller, they grip like a thriller.
August 11, 2015
It''s remarkable to see this movie turn a lurid murder into a takedown of the myths we Americans like to tell ourselves.
May 29, 2015
The movie remains fascinating because of the fine performances of the three key characters and the mystery of what is happening in du Pont's head.

Foxcatcher pins the viewer to the mat with its emotionally bruising tale of class, ambition and the pursuit of sporting excellence.

April 27, 2015
Here is a movie that regards people with sympathetic gazes rather than details, fully aware how all things will pan out but fascinated enough by the inner-workings of flawed psyches to keep our eyes watching on in sobering deliberation.

Plays like a slow-motion wrestling bout, the characters edging and circling each other, occasionally finding an emotional grip before sliding apart to re-assess the stakes and manoeuvre positions.

Dark, often unsettling material and the tone is ominous, almost suffocatingly so, from start to finish--but the performances are stellar.

Steve Carell gives a surprising performance in "Foxcatcher." The comic actor shows his dramatic chops in an awesome way.

February 28, 2015
Miller has a keen eye for examining the intersection of class, money and ambition. The screenplay compresses the timeline, moves key scenes around, and favors character over action, but it absolutely stays focused on these difficult larger themes.

A pensive and unsettling film that defies genre description and keeps you wondering just what the heck sort of film you're watching.
