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.
heartwrenching, in a non-dramatic way. It's an old, retired, no longer functional wrestler vs the common and ordinary world.
Mickey Rourke should really be proud of what he's done here. Fantastic performance! Should've got the Oscar for it!
