    A real human story depicting the choice we have to make in life. Part of Aronofski's trilogy about human downfall (along Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream) and maybe his most realistic and 'close to us' work. A powerful performance by Rourke himself, who was robbed at the Academy awards in 2009. 5 years 11 months ago

    heartwrenching, in a non-dramatic way. It's an old, retired, no longer functional wrestler vs the common and ordinary world. 6 years 3 months ago

    Mickey Rourke should really be proud of what he's done here. Fantastic performance! Should've got the Oscar for it! 8 years ago
