The film is a slow burn initially Mark is in charge but its not working out so Mr Du Pont wants David to be a part of the set up despite his brothers plea's he's not interested because he doesn't want to move his wife (Sienna Miller) and kids around like his childhood was growing up but John believes its a question of money and won't take no for an answer.
"Foxcatchers" script by E Max Frye & Dan Futterman of two extremely off kilter men looking for acceptance and to build up there own legacy while living under the shadow of successful family members. An example of this John is coaching his " team" while his wheelchair bound mother (Vanessa Redgrave) looks on he's playing out his role trying to get her improvement but its all in vain shes more interested in horses not her flesh & blood.
Steve Carell is acting his way through prosthetics which gives him a hooked beak much like the birds he looks at through binoculars but its a departure from his normal roles that's somewhat successful but the standout role is from Channing Tatum who is normally seen as the pretty good looking guy of the Magic Mike movies he delivers a strong performance as Mr Du Pont's Plaything the underlying homo-erotic relationship they have isn't fully realised.
The film also gets strong performances from Mark Ruffalo as the more successful Schultz brother coaching the USA Wrestling team with a family Sienna Millers role as his wife seems to have been cut down as evident in the DVDs deleted scenes also look out for a "Breakfast Clubs" Anthony Michael Hall in a small role as John's fixer.
"Foxcatcher" isn't a film that I could ever see myself watching more than once I had to write for this review as I felt it dragged in the middle and was a rather cold movie. This Entertainment One release also has a short making of telling stories of how the movie was developed and of its production.
