Driven by hidden needs, Du Pont sees backing Schultz's bid for Gold and the chance to "coach" a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother Vanessa Redgrave.
Trapped in Du Pont's majestic but suffocating world, Mark comes to see his benefactor as an egotistical, arrogant, and selfish megalomaniac and grows increasingly contemptuous.
Though initially supportive, Du Pont's mercurial personality turns and he begins to lure Mark into an unhealthy lifestyle that threatens to undermine his training.
Soon Du Pont's erratic behavior and threatening psychological game-play begin to erode the athlete's environment, stability, and motivation.
Meanwhile Du Pont becomes fixated on Dave, who exudes the confidence Du Pont lacks. Du Pont eventually realizes he is unable to buy the respect he so desperately desires from the world's greatest wrestlers.

Crazy Credits. Du Pont having unlimited money, can do pretty much whatever he wishes. That in itself is control, but yet seemingly he consistently loses that authoritative presence to Dave Schultz.
Was really interesting to watch. Transformative performances for both Channing Tatum and Steve Carell really aided is portraying their characters realistically.
Both of them were outstanding and deserved every recognition they got. Their physical prowess was extraordinary. Mark Ruffalo was consistent yet again, however Vanessa Redgrave was criminally underused.
The wrestling scenes that they actually contributed in were well filmed and exciting to watch. It's not a sport I'm familiar with, but I've taken down some notes Bennett Miller's direction was very precise, he took his time with the plot and the long static camera shots evidently showed that.
This leads me to the massive negative of the film: pacing. This was slow. Far too slow. Although, that final event was executed to perfection and full of tension.
However, I can see why people dislike the pace. Intriguingly, the execution of the dialogue was at a snail's pace as well! Waiting for Carell to say a sentence takes about 2 minutes.
Sure it's captivating if you truly focus, but for those who actually don't have any interest in this will surely fall asleep.
An "electrifying thriller" it is not, but a very well executed character study it is. Luke A Super Reviewer.
Apr 16, The two words that encapsulate the whole of Foxcatcher: bleak and bizarre. Based on the true story about a man who is taken under the wing of an eccentric wrestling enthusiast wielding the power of his heritage and the old money that comes with it.
The first thing you'll notice is how bleak it all is: from the color palette to the people the actors bring into this utterly depressing Pennsylvania farm.
Steve Carell shatters expectations, nailing the mannerisms and look virtually unrecognizable of John du Pont.
The most impressive part of this performance is how uncomfortable Carell makes you feel while watching him.
Overshadowed in character and in performance by Mark Ruffalo who I think was overrated in this film is Channing Tatum.
Like Carell, it's the best performance of his career, hands down. My biggest qualm with Foxcatcher is the creative decision to focus on everything but du Pont's psychology and the downward spiral that's caused by it.
The reason this story is famous is because of what du Pont did, and the reasons behind his motive were only explored on a basic and surface level.
This makes the twist at the end feel more random than shocking. I'd recommend watching the Netflix documentary "Team Foxcatcher" as a companion piece to get a more accurate interpretation of the illness that drove du Pont to end his career and destroy his reputation.
Otherwise, Foxcatcher is a movie filled with high-caliber performances from actors who will take you by surprise, and is a beautifully photographed American tragedy.
Kevin M Super Reviewer. Mar 12, Oddly neutral and lifeless retelling of the events surrounding the Foxcatcher wrestling team of the 80s. The acting is top notch and takes the film through some slow parts, but its almost documentary style keeps the viewer at a distance to the characters and the events.
Even the shocking and tragic ending keeps you somewhat unimpressed, but at least it gets you curious about the real persons and events behind this.
The acting performances stand out. Jens S Super Reviewer. See all Audience reviews. John du Pont: Ornithologist, Philatelist, Philanthropist.
Mark Schultz: I just don't wanna let you down. Mark Schultz: You can't buy Dave. Dave sent Yugoslavia's Saban Sejdi to the hospital with a knee injury incurred during their pound match.
Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo would film all day, and then go to intense wrestling practice. By the end of the shoot, they were so exhausted that, according to Tatum, he and Ruffalo cried after their final practice.
Bennett Miller claims that post-production took a solid year without ever putting it on hold. Miller further claimed that he worked in the editing suite alone on days his editors had off.
Steve Carell and Channing Tatum ad-libbed their dialogue in the helicopter scene. David 'Doc' Bennett , who shot documentaries for John du Pont , plays himself in this movie.
Mark Ruffalo gained thirty pounds for his role. Steve Carell wore various prosthetic noses with camera and lighting tests. His make-up took two hours to put on, including hairstyling and make-up to change his skin tone.
Although Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo are over 13 years apart in age, the real Dave Schultz and Mark Schultz were only 16 months and 20 days apart in age.
Because the project took so many years to get off the ground, many actors were considered for the lead roles. Heath Ledger , Ryan Gosling , and Bill Nighy were strongly considered for the lead roles in the early stages of production.
Mark Schultz and Dave Schultz 's father and mother divorced when Mark was three and Dave was four, but raised the brothers through junior high and high school.
According to Bennett Miller 's comments at a screening, a rough cut of the film was more than four hours long. Dave Schultz so admired the wrestlers of the Soviet Union that he learned Russian so he could understand what their coaches were saying to them.
When the wrestlers are shown watching an Ultimate Fighting Championship, the year is , although the match shown is UFC 8, which took place in The winning fighter in the match shown is Gary Goodridge , who Mark Schultz would later fight when he joined the UFC, and competed in UFC 9 in Detroit, Michigan.
The screenplay for this film was featured in the Blacklist; a list of the "most liked" unmade scripts of the year. Steve Carell accepted the role so he would be able to work with Bennett Miller.
Originally, Bennett Miller was supposed to be in production for this film in , but got sidetracked stepping in for Steven Soderbergh on the directorial duties for Moneyball The writers of the movie, Dan Futterman and E.
