Foxcatcher

foxcatcherThere’s a scene halfway through Bennet Miller’s real life drama Foxcatcher, that really illustrates just how lonely John DuPont (Steve Carrell) is, his multimillion dollar estate be damned.

Team Foxcatcher has just won Worlds, and the team is gathered around the trophy room, celebrating.
Then, DuPont trips and falls.

When someone tries to get him off the ground, DuPont tries to tackle him to the ground, a la wrestler.
Everyone begins to chant his name, John tackles somebody else to the ground, and he feels a champion.
He is happy.

It’s all very sad.
