The Wrestler

The Wrestler ★★★★★

This is one the best films to come of of the 2000's and by far Arnofsky's greatest work to date, and most likely ever. Considerate and intimate, we are with Randy The Ram from the highs of the ring to the creaking lows of his everyday life, to the physical shattering of the ring to the emotional shattering of his everyday life. Here is a man who will put everything up on the table for his art, love, family, health and wealth...it is all sacrificed for the rush of performance and roar of the crowd.

P.S. Wrestling is an art form, like any performance art and arguable the most physically demanding of them all, so next time some SOB jibroni says that wrestling is fake, chockeslam them down and get them in a camel clutch to watch this movie...
