What Foxcatcher does show with excellent surgical understatement is that, when it comes to wealth, Americans are seriously, impressively, pants-down, hats-off nuts.

Foxcatcher is one of the most bizarre true stories ever adapted

The Carell-Ruffalo-Tatum trio put in terrific, edgy performances.

Honestly, by the time Foxcatcher gets to where it's going, we realize that we've gained little more insight into these events than we had going in.

The actors save the day. [Mark] Ruffalo contributes the film's only warmth, and [Steve] Carell's portrait of repressed arrogance is chilling. But most impressive is [Channing] Tatum.

While the acting is mostly impressive, the ending of the film leaves much to be desired as screenwriters E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman's script simply flutters to a close without much of an impact.

[Bennett] Miller refuses to go for the cheap thrills, but in so doing, he forgets to give us any thrills.
June 27, 2017
Director Bennett Miller does nothing to develop the increasingly complex relationships.
July 26, 2016
Foxcatcher is a different beast, just sitting there with nothing to say.
June 21, 2016
Written by Dan Futterman and E Max Frye, Foxcatcher is an intermittently rivetting, self-conscious and deadly serious exploration of the peculiar nature of the relationship between Du Pont and his possession.
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.
June 6, 2016
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.
April 26, 2016
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.

April 10, 2016
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
December 11, 2015
[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.
