Consensus: A chilling true crime drama, Foxcatcher offers Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum a chance to shine -- and all three of them rise to the challenge.

Foxcatcher is too cold of a movie to love, but that chilliness is intentional and transfixing, a parable about the darkest corners of the minds of damaged men that dares to whisper instead of shout.

There are many elements to this true story about wealth, wrestling and winning but it is Steve Carell's extraordinary metamorphose as the creepy John E. du Pont, complete with unsettling gaze and manner that is the film's most haunting element

Director Bennett Miller ("Capote," "Moneyball") has a fascinating story here and he knows it.

Carell is immersed in the role, completely convincing. Tatum also is outstanding.

Was a very slow paced film. Well acted, especially by Carell and Ruffalo.

I found this pretty slow and boring with some indulgent directing. The performances are good, but not good enough to sit through.

An unforgettable near-masterpiece from the always reliable Bennett Miller concerning the story of John du Pont (Steve Carell) and his recruitment of Olympic… More

This movie is worth seeing for the performances. Tatum, Ruffalo and Carell all do great jobs, particularly Carell, who not only looks and sounds like John E.… More

As wrestling is more of a psychological sport than a physical one (even though it may appear otherwise) so is this movie. That is to say, though there is not a… More
