Wondering why times are missing?

Foxcatcher

Steve Carell goes way against type here, playing (real-life) multimillionaire John E. du Pont, a blue blood weirdo who sponsored a couple of wrestlers (played by Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo) in the 1988 Olympic Games. Let's just say things did not end well. Director Bennett Miller, who knows a good nonfiction story when he hears it, also directed Capote and Moneyball. But in this increasingly dark crime thriller about male bonding gone horribly wrong, he's hit tragic gold. The cast (yes, even Tatum) is revelatory, and the details are pitch (black) perfect. 134 minutes R.
