226 – The Wrestler (2008)

Marisa Tomei with some great acting.I think she won two golden globes for her performance in this.

There’s parallels with Randy the Ram and Mickey Rourkes career and i think that’s why it works so well and received all them awards.The Wrestler is about a washed up guy trying to get his life in order after having a heart attack and getting a bypass.He quits wrestling,gets a normal job,tries to rekindle his relationship with his estranged daughter and chats up a stripper.But as you find out he’s a natural fuck-up and just volatile.Near the end you realise that The Ram wasn’t designed for day-to-day life,he’s a performer and an entertainer who feeds of the attention of the fans.Then he dies.
