#21 – The Wrestler

Mickey Rourke returns triumphantly in this drama about a former pro wrestler trying to survive on the independent circuit. This movie reminded me of Rocky a lot. Only, unlike Rocky, it’s not a movie about victory, but rather defeat and loss. It’s a very sad movie and I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re looking for something uplifting. However, if you are looking for something intelligent and powerful, this is a great place to start. The performances all shine through, especially Rourke, who basically turns in the performance of his career here. This will be the movie people will remember him for years from now. This movie is effective enough to make its audience laugh, cry and feel the main character’s pain. It’s a truly infecting film that will make you think about life and all its ups and downs. And sometimes we need to step back and think a little bit.
