Come Down From That Tower



I was lucky enough to watch The Wrestler this weekend. It completely deserves every bit of hype it received. Mickey Rourke did a phenomenal job as lead in this film and director, Darren Aronofsky was point on in his direction of the film. Even Marisa Tomei - although naked most of the movie. We get it, Marisa. You're getting older and mostly in shape. That is not a license to be naked for hours on end - was great in her supporting role. Despite her aforementioned, over-nakedness, she really is a great actress and was perfect for the part.

The story is so well played out and the music (mostly 80's hair metal) and the ominous score added greatly to the film.

This is definitely a must-see. Not like Must-See-TV, though. Frasier wasn't really that great.

I've been wanting to see this movie. I don't know if it's a lot of plastic surgery or years of getting banged up while boxing, or both, but Mickey is hard to look at without a pained look on my face. However I've also found him to be a very compelling actor in the films I've actually seen him in.
