Foxcatcher – Review

One of the creepier films released this holiday season is Foxcatcher. Foxcatcher tells the true story about Mark (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) and their relationship with millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell).
If you do not know the truth about this tale, do not go looking for it. The film depicts the difficulty a wrestler has after his collegiate career is over. Mark Schultz is looking for his second Olympic Gold and prepares for the next Olympic Games. When one day, he receives a call from John du Pont, the heir to the du Pont fortune. After the relationship is made, you’re giving clues that something isn’t right but what?
Du Pont wants Schultz to bring his brother David and build the Foxcatcher training empire. Du Pont’s interest in wrestling stems from his childhood and his obsession of being a champion.
If you’re a movie buff, you have to see this film. Steve Carell gives a fantastic performance and Mark Ruffalo steals the spotlight from Channing Tatum. Just a warning, the first twenty minutes are extremely slow-moving but once you get through that, you’re waiting for the next shot (wrestling joke).
