WRESTLER, THE

Darren Aronofsky's THE WRESLTER is one of my favorite films of the modern era and was my favorite film of 2008.  Professional wrestling and the bastard offshoot of regional wrestling is such a massive force in our culture but had never been successfully explored in film narrative.  As Randy 'The Ram' Robinson, Mickey Rourke delivers one of the most epic, funny and tragic performances in recent history.
