The Crucial Celebrity of Channing Tatum’s Body in ‘Foxcatcher’

The transformation! The transformative nose! Everybody is talking about Steve Carell’s Foxcatcher nose! I talked about Steve Carell’s Foxcatcher nose! Because when a celebrity wears a prosthetic nose, it gets talked about! But a nose is, ultimately, just a nose. There’s a whole body in this film that we should be talking about (and beware, in our discussion of that body, there will be many spoilers). … Read More

How Insane Was the Real-Life Millionaire Murderer at the Center of ‘Foxcatcher’?

In Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher (out this Friday), Steve Carell turns in a haunted and harrowing performance as John E. du Pont, the millionaire heir to the du Pont fortune and amateur wrestling enthusiast who murdered Olympic gold medalist Dave Schultz in 1996. The film is riveting and strange, made all the more fascinating by its “based on a true story” framework. But I’ll confess to a bit of skepticism while watching the film — not about whether it departs from the facts (a line of inquiry that’s beginning to rear its ugly head, predictably enough), but whether gun-toting, coke-snorting, paranoid mama’s boy du Pont was actually that unbalanced or, y’know, dramatic license. But research from the period indicates that, if anything, Miller and his screenwriters went soft on du Pont’s, um, eccentricities. … Read More

50 Great Pre-Fame Performances by Famous Actors

This week, the Criterion Collection is releasing a double bill of the mid-‘60s Westerns The Shooting and Ride the Whirlwind, a treat not only for fans of revisionist Westerns and director Monte Hellman, but also for those who admire Jack Nicholson, here seen in two terrific performances that predate his breakthrough in Easy Rider. There’s a specific kind of pleasure in revisiting the early work of actors who would later become famous — not the roles that made them stars, but their earlier, quieter gigs, in which we glimpse an actor just trying to do good work, yet already exhibiting the spark that would mark them for fame. Here are a few of our… Read More

Bennett Miller’s ‘Foxcatcher': A Mesmerizing Telling of a Bizarre, Tragic, True Tale

Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher is the dark story of a deeply troubled man and a cold-blooded murder, but that’s not what drew the Capote and Moneyball director to the film. “I thought it was funny. Seriously!” he said at the news conference following Friday’s press and media screening for the film, which screens tonight at the New York Film Festival. “The absurdity, the dark comic absurdity of one of the wealthiest men in America bringing a team of wrestlers to his estate to train, where he would become their coach without knowing anything about wrestling… It’s the kind of thing that’s funny till it’s not — and then it’s not funny at all.” … Read More
