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.

Excellent Documentary
1 July 2016 | by olyrefSee all my reviews

Excellent piece from those who were actually there. No punches pulled, straight forward and truthful. I will never forget where I was when I heard Dave was murdered.

It was very difficult seeing this replayed but I feel it was the best of the three films on the subject. The movie Foxcatcher was well acted and the 30 for 30 Documentary was also well done, however I feel this was the better of the three.

Whenever I am at a wrestling event and I hear our national anthem, I always think of Dave on the podium in LA with the gold medal and his smile.
