4. Foxcatcher

JamesArthurArmstrong JamesArthurArmstrong Director: Bennett Miller
Stars: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo

Synopsis: The greatest Olympic Wrestling Champion brother team joins Team Foxcatcher lead by multi-millionaire sponsor John E. du Pont as they train for the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul — a union that leads to unlikely circumstances.

Carell finds himself in a role unlike most heʼs done before and delivers a performance of great intellect and precise timing. Heʼs almost as accomplished at dramatic tragedy as he is at comedy. Foxcatcher is a layered tale, focussed on the warped character Carell portrays, who is a uncomfortable monster of wealth and power. Foxcatcher is a tightly wound story that sustains a brutal intensity throughout its duration. — James Arthur Armstrong
