The Wrestler update feed

The Wrestler

“Though the story is somewhat lacking in creativity, The Wrestler is an involving drama with a linear story that will likely provide a decent amount of emotional satisfaction to most who see it. The first third of the film is effective in its realistic depiction of the world of wrestling, particularly the staged elements of it - in the changing room, before heading out to the ring, we see fighters who will be facing off discussing how the fights will play out. Darren Aronofsky's film shows us that this is still a sport that can yield many real physical wounds, and Randy "The Ram" Robinson (Mickey Rourke) not only knows every major wound in his body, but remembers the year in which he got it and the fight in which it was dealt to him. An even more dire consequence of Randy's participation in” read more

" ''I'm an old broken down piece of meat and I deserve to be all alone, I just don't want you to hate me.'' Darren Aronofsky has always been a Director whom has been close to my heart. Whether it was the film that blew my world away, the much loved The Fountain, or the cryptic puzzler Pi, or the emotionally entrancing Requiem for a Dream, whether it's any of these Darren always proves to be a man of vision. Why am I not surprised Aronofsky's latest, The Wrestler proves to be equally successf"

"22nd of June, DVD Raju, äijämaulla höystetty draama suoraan hyvän ohjaajan hyppysistä. Mickey Rourke on tässä kenties elämänsä parhaassa roolissa. Marisa Tomei on loistava tukiessaan murtunutta painijaa. Evan Rachel Wood on myös hienossa vedossa painijaisäänsä pettyneenä tyttärenä. Wrestler on koskettava ja raju elokuva, joka uskottavalla tavalla näyttää kehärääkin elämäntapaa. Painikohtaukset ovat omalla tavallaan karuja, mutta myös hienoja. Aronofsky tulee varmasti o"

"Upeasti toteutettu elokuva showpainijan uran ehtoopuolesta. The Wrestler ei mitenkään glorifioi hommaa, vaan urheilu steroideineen on rankaa puuhaa, joka kyllä kuluttaa kroppaa tehokaasti. Ja esiintyy myös yksityiselämänkin puolella ongelmia. Kyllä Rourke olisi tästä Oscarin ansainnut."

"Stripped-down Aronofsky movie but it works. It works because of Mickey Rourke. Rourke is amazing as a abandoned, lonely and vulnerable Randy "The Ram" Robinson. The illusion of the past glory is taken from him in the form of heart attack and now he's gotta face the reality. One of the strongest scenes is the beach scene where "The Ram" tries to found peace with his daughter. There's no heroes, there's no bad guys...The Wrestler is about real people. "
