Foxcatcher – 8.0/10



The ensemble of this movie is terrific. Steven Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo are irreconcilable. I do have to say that as much as I loved Carell performance I would have liked to see him with less make up and prosthetic. I think that his transformation goes way deeper than the physical look. The main problem of “Foxcatcher” is that it doesn’t have a main protagonist, sometimes it’s Tatum sometimes it’s Carell; that makes the movie cold and really hard to connect with. I understand the concern of the director of telling the story in total neutrality and just present the facts as they happened; but I think that he still could have done that and at the same time use an specific point of view; in other words: tell the story through the eyes of one of the characters and let the audience empathize with him. Even if you already know the story, the movie is really entertaining; it’s thrilling and violent, the wrestling scenes are really well done and of course, it it has masterful performances.
