Steve Carrell in a dramatic role knocks this out of the park. Too many people will say that the role is all about the prosthetic schnoz, but his performance outshines the very good work also put in by both Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo.
There is nothing unnecessary here, no frills or extras. The story unfolds slowly, and we are given time to understand the characters and their motivations. Not everything is shown to the viewer directly; it’s up to us to watch closely and draw inferences and conclusions. Strange, engrossing, satisfying.
