More Info:
  • Steve Persall

    Miller unravels this story with the grim inevitability of a death row vigil, but not without flashes of sly humor.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The triumph of Foxcatcher is not in the subject but in its art. The clear-eyed compassion and moral intelligence of Miller’s film brings sense to the senseless, and finds the human pulse behind the tabloid shock. It’s not a movie to make you feel good, but, at moments, it reminds you what goodness is.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Foxcatcher is a story of wealth and the lack of it, of family connection and disconnection. But more than anything, it is a story of a mind unraveling. The result is devastating drama for those of us looking on.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Foxcatcher exerts a mesmerizing pull, not only because it affords the chance to witness three fine actors working at the height of their powers, but also because it so steadfastly resists the urge to clutter up empty space with the filigree of gratuitous imagery and chatter.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The story is so powerfully observed that it does indeed become larger than itself – an American tragedy.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    A despairing, intentionally disturbing film that draws us into a maelstrom of desperate emotions, it holds up a dark mirror to the American dream and does not like what it sees.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The hypnotic and haunting Foxcatcher can prove its worth as one of the year's very best films. Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo give the performances of their lives.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    If the screenplay, by Dan Futterman (“Capote”) and E. Max Frye, is relatively spare in terms of dialogue, it’s satisfyingly rich and thorny in its conception of the tightly wound triangle at its center, while Miller’s direction evinces the same sustained intensity and consummate control of his material that defined his first two features.

    Variety Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Mesmerizing in its incremental layering of a bizarre, tragic and thoroughly warped character study, Foxcatcher sees director Bennett Miller well surpassing even the fine work he did in his previous two films, Capote and Moneyball.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Miller finds grand, America-describing themes in the interactions between these three men: the extraordinary influence of inherited wealth, the hunkered-down ambition of working-class athletes, the equation of material success with honour and moral rectitude.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Jessica Kiang

    With Foxcatcher, [Miller] has outdone himself, turning his uniquely meticulous eye to a tiny story in a totally rarefied, specific environment and through whatever alchemy he has perfected, created something so universal and resonant that it feels epic, sprawling, almost ancient in its mythic overtones. Foxcatcher is an enormous film.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    It is a gripping film: horrible, scary and desperately sad.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • John Bleasdale

    Carell, in a rare but not unique departure into drama, proves himself as accomplished at tragedy as he is at comedy.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Though anchored by a affecting and sullen turn by Channing Tatum, the movie derives its primary discomfiting power from Steve Carell in a revelatory performance as a monster of American wealth.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Mr. Miller does his finest work with his three superb leads.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Foxcatcher is another strange and compelling anthropological drama from Miller, a director with evident expertise at enabling Oscar-worthy star performances. Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    If you don’t know the true story, we won’t spoil it for you except to say that it’s not the expected outcome. But if you’re willing to be thrown for a loop, you’re in good hands with this medal-worthy cast and crew.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Foxcatcher is too cold of a movie to love, but that chilliness is intentional and transfixing, a parable about the darkest corners of the minds of men that dares to whisper instead of shout.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The movie’s tone is hushed, restrained; emotional damage is crammed way back where no one can see it yet defines everything through a murky prism.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Foxcatcher is a disturbing and memorable film.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Foxcatcher might just be the feel-bad movie of the year. But it's so well-acted that audiences won't want to miss its dark, chilling yet restrained story. A little less muting of this outlandish true-to-life tale, however, might have made it even more mesmerizing.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    It’s an amalgam of dramatic all-American themes including ambition, paranoia, greed and the ice cubes in the blood that fuel the ruthless pursuit of success in the competitive world of sports. Color it hair-raising.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Carell, though, is the real shock to the system here. He is quirky, queer in the old fashioned sense, and pathetically funny.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Of Bennett Miller's many directorial feats, his canniest is his depiction of the precariousness of bonds, and how those bonds can shift, drastically yet almost imperceptibly.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Nothing short of fascinating. Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    Foxcatcher has a sober, chilly vibe that's completely at odds with the sport of wrestling and the men and women who love it.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    These performances are beyond reproach, which makes it even stranger that the film never quite turns into the crushing experience it feels like it should be.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Emma Dibdin

    A hypnotically disturbing triumph for Miller and his cast. Bruisingly intimate and psychologically nuanced, its spiral into savagery lingers like a bad dream.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    Another dramatic triumph for Bennett Miller, though it is his toughest and least glamorous outing yet. A sad and horrible story, expertly and compellingly told.

    Empire Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Miller maintains control over the proceedings at all times, which is impressive enough. But where he really soars is in the performances he gets from his three lead actors.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Foxcatcher is a radical departure from Mr. Miller’s previous feature, the smart and entertaining “Moneyball.” It isn’t meant as conventional entertainment, but it’s fascinating to watch from start to finish.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Rare is the drama that plumbs the quirky, unsettling depths of human nature like Foxcatcher. Simultaneously understated and grippingly edgy, this is an arresting examination of naivete, mismatched worlds and old-fashioned American oddness.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    Director Bennett Miller and screenwriters E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman have thought through every scene and every line in Foxcatcher. Nothing is irrelevant. The film proceeds like a well-constructed argument.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's meticulous, fastidiously controlled and a tiny bit enervated. I've seen it twice; it's successful enough in what it's attempting to merit at least one viewing. But even after two, you may struggle with what's not there, and should be, or could be.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Like "Raging Bull", Foxcatcher is a dark drama masquerading as a sports movie.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Mesmerizing, eerie and unpredictably weird.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    As powerful as Foxcatcher can be scene to scene, there’s something maddeningly indistinct about it at times, as if the details that would make it all make sense remain somehow inaccessible to us.

    Slate Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Tatum’s is the central performance: most daring because it’s least giving. He has often played young men of thick athleticism and slow wit. It’s proof of Tatum’s intelligence that he can make the audience feel smarter than the characters he plays – until they reveal a sly brilliance halfway through the movie.

    Time Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Foxcatcher is merely a very, very good character study with acting so fine that it's frustrating it's not in the service of a real, emotional wallop.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    So skilled are both Carell and Tatum that the movie itself falls prey to the characters’ repression. Though never less than careful and clever, it’s also a stunted and fiercely unhappy piece of work, straining hard to deliver home truths about a commonweal that has beaten itself out of shape.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    The most haunting thing in Bennett Miller's latest film, Foxcatcher, is Steve Carell. That's right, the same rubber-faced comedian who gave us the dim-witted meteorologist of "Anchorman" and the oblivious corner-office boob of "The Office."

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    In the end Foxcatcher proves impossible to embrace because of fundamental miscalculations in performance, direction and makeup, along with a certain clumsiness in the way that it tries to use its profoundly sad story to make some kind of grand statement about American values, or the lack thereof. Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Foxcatcher isn't a film many viewers will clamor to rewatch. It's too chilly a film for that. At the same time, it's one that will suck them in -- and it will hold them while they're there.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    It’s hard to say exactly what’s at fault here: the performances are flawless – Carell fully justifies his unlikely casting, while Ruffalo is as dependable as ever – and the script is astute, intimate and at times shocking. But there’s just no real life in the film.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    The movie reaches for big insights about America’s obsession with winning and the dangers of unchecked entitlement, while simultaneously treating its real-life subjects like the stars of a Greek tragedy.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    Whatever the case, Foxcatcher provides little insight. Art can shape the truth in ways that resonate beyond the obvious. Regrettably, the truth-shaping here grapples for significance, without any apparent aim. Catch as catch can.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The experience of watching Foxcatcher is of constantly waiting for something to happen — and of giving up, long before something actually does.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The movie’s take at times is fascinating. But it’s basically one long, sick joke played at half speed. It’s a ponderous, sick joke.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Once Miller lays all his cards on the table, however, you realize you haven’t been watching people struggling with the very real temptations of unchecked privilege, so much as fumbling blindly in a glib, gloomy satire of American exceptionalism.
