Movie Review

The Wrestler dir. Darren Aronofsky — 8.1

How did Mickey Rourke not win the oscar for this? Yes, it has been proven endlessly that the oscars represent nothing, particularly not artistic merit, but still. Sure, Sean Penn deserves some credit for forcing himself (ahem) to french James Franco in Milk, but there's no comparison performance-wise in the soul-stripping department. Rourke's face looks almost exactly like the pig skull impaled on a stake from the cover of my fifties edition of The Lord Of The Flies. His body is so red and bloated and ramped with steroids it made me wince in each scene. He WAS Randy The Ram. That wasn't even acting. And finally, a movie I liked with and ENDING I liked. Oh, man, what else can you ask for?
