The Wrestler

2008

Darren Aronofsky
Director

The continued fall and slight rise of wrestler Randy the Ram.

Rourke is just phenomenal in the title role with able support from everyone else. I expected a little more panache from Aronofsky who directs this one like a documentary - I'm not saying that's a bad thing, just an unexpected thing.
