FOXCATCHER
July 31, 2015  | By David Bianculli

Starz!, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum play wrestlers asked by an eccentric millionaire to come to his private training facility in preparation for the 1988 Olympic Games. What sounds like a traditional, inspirational sports movie is anything but, because, by sticking to the facts, Foxcatcher becomes something much more unpredictable and disturbing. And speaking of defying expectations: Steve Carell is all but unrecognizable as the wealthy, wrestling-obsessed John du Pont.
