Foxcatcher

There’s something really eerie and unsettling about the tone of this film, from start to finish. It’s clear from the outset that the relationships are not right, without being able to pin things down, and I felt on edge throughout.

Solid turns by Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum, but Steve Carell’s performance as John du Pont was just too mannered, and at times he looked like he was holding his head at an angle to stop the prosthetic nose from falling off.

Best if you see the film knowing nothing about it – unfortunately a Guardian news (not film) headline spoilt it for me.
