“Foxcatcher” isn't your regular sports flick. The genre is usually focused on male rivalry, blood, sweat, and tears, but in this case it's merely an excuse to outline the relations of the Schultz brothers – wrestlers and medallists of the Games in Los Angeles – and John du Pont, their megalomaniac, multimillionaire coach. In his film, Miller takes a close look at the fall of the American dream, at going mad because of the ruthless elite, and at the surprisingly up-to-date inequalities that are eating away at that society. Based on facts, the unorthodox story of the Schultz brothers leaves sports in the background. It poses relevant questions about the boundaries of healthy ambitions, about being reliant on someone else, and about the toll we must pay for our dreams.
