When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the poverty striken situation Olympic caliber athletes like he and his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo). Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz's bid for Gold and the chance to coach a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave).

The saga of John du Pont is one of the more bizarre and tragic stories
from the mid-1990s. In Bennett Miller's dark and ominous Foxcatcher,
the episode is framed as a true-life Faustian Tale. But the story is
almost secondary to three outstanding dramatic performances -- two of
which are given by men who are better known for their work in other
Channing Tatum stars as Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz. When we first
meet him, he's already reached elite status by winning a gold medal.
But the achievement hasn't allowed him to escape the shadow of his
older brother, Dave, also a gold medalist. The younger Schultz wants
more. He wants to be the best. His past prize also doesn't pay the
bills. After training sessions, he's eating ramen noodles. All that
changes, however, with a phone call from du Pont (Steve Carell) who
offers to pay him and set him up in a first-class training facility on
his Pennsylvania estate.
Like Schultz, the multi-millionaire du Pont is a man in a seemingly
enviable position who nevertheless wants something greater. He has
family issues of his own, as he strives to please his disapproving
mother (Vanessa Redgrave). He hopes he can make her proud by leading a
team of wrestlers to gold in Seoul in 1988. But du Pont doesn't just
want to be a benefactor. Even though he's little more than an extremely
wealthy fan, with only a rudimentary knowledge of the sport, he wants
to be seen as a coach and mentor to his wrestlers. And so, when Dave
arrives to guide his brother, jealousy develops. Dave is everything du
Pont wishes he could be, but isn't. He's a great teacher, a great
leader. This leads to tension that slowly builds toward the story's
shocking climax as du Pont's demons emerge.
As du Pont, Carell is almost unrecognizable beneath make-up and
prosthetics. It's a quietly disturbing performance that will definitely
have audiences and critics seeing the comic talent in a new light.
Action/comedy star Tatum also has a breakthrough turn as the intense
and driven young Schultz who grows increasingly uncomfortable under du
Pont's subjugation. As a past Academy Award nominee, Mark Ruffalo's
exceptional portrayal of the older Schultz comes as less of a surprise.
But that doesn't make it any less notable or transformative. The
normally wiry Ruffalo packed on a lot of muscle to play Dave Schultz.
Here, he looks less like his Bruce Banner alter ego, and more like the
Hulk himself. All three performances are a study in the art of subtly.
This is a movie that derives drama from silent moments. In many key
scenes, it's the words that aren't said that speak volumes.
Foxcatcher features themes of control and manipulation, and wrestling
functions as an apt metaphor. It's that most primal of sports one in
which you literally bend another person to your will. Ultimately
though, the movie is a story about two people who reach for greatness,
only to experience a great fall. And it's also the tale of a great man
caught in the middle. The saddest part is that it actually happened.
