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.

Narrators points of view

I think the film was produced so nicely with the narrators points of view. Showing the clips from 1988 and the background voices of the people involved in the story line showed how how many supportive and unsupportive people John had beside him. I enjoyed this film a lot.
