The Wrestler

This movie looks fascinating.

The more I see of The Wrestler...the more excited I get.

I'm particularly impressed by the gritty tone of the film and how the fight sequences feel authentic.

We've been hearing about a Mickey Rourke comeback for years.

But this time it looks legit.

Lots of Oscar buzz and great word of mouth.

I admire the work of Darren Aronofsky. His movies aren't necessarily enjoyable diversions.

But definitely thought provoking.

Let's hope he delivers.
