    As of last week, Mark Schultz was tweeting out positive reviews of Foxcatcher, the new film in which the Olympic wrestler is played by Channing Tatum.

    It appears since then he has actually seen the thing, and boy is he not happy about it. In a tweetstorm and Facebook post posted late New Year’s Eve Schultz went off on the film and even threatened director Bennett Miller over what he perceived as the film’s wild inaccuracies. Schultz especially objected to a scene which suggested he and benefactor John du Pont (Steve Carrell) had a sexual relationship......................

    There is nothing sexual about men grabbing each other and rolling around on a padded mat.

    Movie looks really slow and weird from the clips I've seen, still going to see it eventually.

    Were there some scenes with sweaty men? I'm just doing research, you understand.

    Oh, I'm not gay. I've been listening to the Stern Show for the last year, and I thought all men lusted after gay men.

    We saw it - he's being overly sensitive. Over and over the movie drills down on the point that du Pont wanted to be a father figure and that Mark was the product of a broken home and was looking for a parental influence.

    Right.
    Also, I understood Mark was on-set. Could he have voiced his opinion then?

    I was living a few miles from DuPont's estate when it happened, so I followed the story. DuPont was fucking Dave Schultz. They broke up and DuPont found a new Russian lover and killed Dave.

    Are you serious? That's the first I've heard of this if true, I followed the case in the papers when it happened.

    My high school wrestling team went to El Camino College to a clinic hosted by Dave in '84, there were probably around 50 school teams from around So.Cal there that day.

    Mark had a cameo and was an advisor.

    But the movie was heavy handed about familial matters (du Pont and his mother, the relationship between the brothers etc etc) - there was really no suggestion of sex between them whatsoever.
