In a stunning departure from his comedic roles, Carell delves into a dark role that's truly chilling. It's clear in some scenes that something isn't right with him, but what? Here's hoping Carell gets more roles like this.
Much like what Carell does, Tatum proves he can be a bonafide actor. It's a role that requires physical and emotional endurance, and Tatum is more than capable of it. Again, here's hoping that Tatum gets more roles like this.
In contrast to his co-star's performances, Ruffalo gives a quieter turn. He gives a performance that has him witnessing all of the silent chaos unfolding. It's only a matter of time before the unthinkable happens.
Foxcatcher is very good though its slow burn might be too slow for some. Still, as is the case with Miller's films, the performances are great. Sometimes you don't know what a person is capable of, whether they're a sinner or a saint.
My Rating: ****1/2
