There are three fantastic performances in this film, but the most affecting and surprising is Steve Carell's. It would be jarring to remember that this is the same man who played Michael Scott — if you could even recognize him. His facial prosthetics (especially a pronounced nose) and totally different voice and accent obscure the Carell you know and love. As John du Pont, a wealthy benefactor who becomes obsessed with the Schultz brothers, Carell is chilling and so, so good. How good? Variety called him a lock for a best actor nomination back at Cannes.
