Wrestling Film Takes Down Cannes Critics

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner! I’m not saying that “Foxcatcher,” the Bennett Miller crime drama about wrestling, will win the top prize at Cannes, where it just unspooled. I’m saying it’s the only Oscar contender to have emerged from the fest so far. Variety says that ‘Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum give superb performances in Miller’s powerfully disturbing true-crime saga.’ And THR says the film is ‘A superbly modulated study of a twisted mind with a career-changing performance by Carell.’
