Two Line Reviews - #156

Movie: The Wrestler (2008)

Plot: A highly popular former Wrestling champion gets a heart attack subsequently retiring from his sport. His retirement makes him realise he's insignificant to the external world - even to his daughter - and the ring is the world for him and he gets back just there.

  • As if to say that he isn't just a complex film maker, Darren Aronofsky delivers class in a simple and gripping record of a wrestler.
  • Rourke,the actor who plays the wrestler Randy 'THE RAM' Robinson is perfect.
  • Touching scenes are in abundance - Some scenes with the dancer Cassidy,Nintendo game scene, super market burst scene etc.
My Rating: 9.1/10
