The Weekender: Crazy Like a ‘Fox’

Movie of the Week

Steve Carell turns in what might be his career-defining performance as John du Pont, the eccentric, violent millionaire who pushed his star wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) to the edge. I’ve been excited for this one ever since the first trailer hit in 2013.

The Long Goodbye
The Long Goodbye
Robert Altman takes a break from his vast ensemble work to delivery this caustic, uproarious detective story. Elliot Gould plays Philip Marlowe, intentionally out of step with the ’70s. It’s almost a middle finger to both New Hollywood and Old Hollywood at the same time.
