The Wrestler

Viewed: 11 August 2009
Directed by:
Listed in: ,

The film is summed up in the title, pro-wrestling is all Randy "The Ram" knows. He barely functions in the world outside of it. The film depends upon and flourishes with Mickey Rourke's performance. He creates a man who despite struggles, false hopes and crushed dreams is a professional. He respects the audience and his career. The Wrestler is unlike any of Aronofsky's other films, the cinematography subdued, the mise-en-scène consists of shitty VFW halls, Acme storerooms and grey New Jersey winters. As a result Rourke encompass the screen and enthrall the audience.
