''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.

“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
