Storyline

Team Foxcatcher (2016) is a documentary about how John du Pont used his money supposedly to help the USA Olympic Wrestling Team by building expensive training facilities on his home property, called 'Foxcatcher'. Dave Schultz, the USA's most successful wrestler at the time, was among the closest friends of John du Pont, defending him when Du Pont's bizarre activities began to cause concern among those living on the 'Foxcatcher' estate. Eventually, Schultz's loyalty to John du Pont would cost him his life.

Best documentary - hands down!
28 July 2017 | by mcandrewsallysonSee all my reviews

This is an incredible documentary!

It contains actual footage and home videos from Dave Schultz's life.

The film serves as a great tribute to Dave, his family, friends and wrestlers.

I had the privilege of viewing it at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. When I got home, I watched it again. It is THAT good!
