#993 – Foxcatcher


From Carrell’s nose, through Ruffalo’s receding hairline, to Tatum’s underbite Foxcatcher is vile. It’s tone is washed out, it’s dialogue curt and everything is saturated with what was nasty about the 80s.

Add to this uncomfortable, unpleasant and uneasy male grappling (and excessive spandex) across the board, and you have one of the most unsettling films I have seen in a long time. It’s a grim tale, grimly told and it’s a spectacularly accomplished piece of filmmaking.
