Not just a piece of meat. A heart felt story.

''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.''

A drama centered on retired professional wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson as he makes his way through the independent circuit...

One of the best sport films of all time.

The Wrestler has gone way above my expectations. It is a complete masterpiece of sports films. Some people have referred it as the new Raging Bull and the sports film of the decade. I would call it both for these various reasons. It is a very emotional story with a rather heartbreaking storyline, it has very realistic effects and it has absolutely beautiful characters to watch. This film is one of... read more

I never thought that I would type these words: I wanted Mickey Rourke to win the Oscar. After years of slumming his quirky and strange talent in B-movies and straight-to-DVD trash, he has returned in a big way. He looks like hell, he sounds like hell, and he's lovable for being so simplistic. Yet he is handicapped emotionally, and, should he continue to wrestle, physically. It is not quite the aut... read more

" Notes: After the already fascinating ‘Requiem for Dream’ and ‘The Fountain’, Darren Aronofsky came up once again with another really strong feature. What was so impressive about this movie was that they managed to tell such an intense and heartbreaking story about such a tedious sport like wrestling. Indeed, I never cared for this ‘sport’ but the story of Randy ‘The Ram’ Robinson was just so fascinating to behold nonetheless. It was above all thanks to a really impressive perf"

El Zumbador posted a review 1 year ago

“La mayoría de películas o historias en general que tratan sobre deportes no suelen meterse tanto en lo que serían los personajes, sino que se centran más en el asunto del deporte en sí y cómo hacen los personajes para ganarle a cierto rival o rivales; no es el caso de The Wrestler, una película que se basa más en el lado psicológico de su protagonista que en lo que está sucediendo en el terreno de juego, o en este caso en particular, en el cuadrilátero de combate.

La premisa como tal es bien simple, un luchador profesional debe pasar por un descenso en literalmente casi todo aspecto de su vida.

Y cuando hablamos de descenso estamos hablando de cosas que son bastante comunes: cosas como el envejecer, el perder la relevancia, problemas familiares, problemas emo” read more
