Critic Reviews for Team Foxcatcher

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

The fictionalized Foxcatcher film had an eagle-eyed focus on du Pont's relationship with Schultz's brother Mark. With that removed, Team Foxcatcher showcases the collective guilt and complicity of innocent people.

It's a straightforward documentary and a good one for those who haven't already spent enough time with this strange, unsettling story.

It's the absence of Dave's brother and athletic partner, Mark, that most glaringly sticks out in director Jon Greenhalgh's film. That incompleteness is a nagging issue throughout, though it shouldn't hinder this otherwise sterling documentary's appeal ...

Team Foxcatcher hold up by itself like a great documentary about John du Pont and the events that transpired on the Foxcatcher farm, but it also complements greatly what we saw in the movie Foxcatcher. [Full review in Spanish]

The tense, nerve-racking score and our own knowledge of the outcome gives the events a sense of doomed inevitability.

Audience Reviews for Team Foxcatcher

The story of Foxcatcher Farms and John du Pont, the man that runs the massive wrestling operation that takes place there, is a fascinating one. This Netflix documentary is a must-see companion piece to the 2014 dramatization of the events (Foxcatcher), titled simply "Team Foxcatcher". Team Foxcatcher takes a different approach, completely dropping the relationship du Pont had with Mark Schultz to focus more on the events leading up to the murder of Mark's brother, David. We're given a closer look at du Pont's motives, which were brought on by a severe case of paranoid schizophrenia and a more intricate look at the events following the murder. What makes this such a compelling story is the idea that nothing, not even money or power, can save some from destroying themselves.
