So among my weekend activities, I finally saw The Wrestler last night, and I was not disappointed. This film was most certainly not something that gives anyone a warm fuzzy, not for a second even; you’re continually swathed in this dismal world of a washed up guy who is still clawing for glory.
The acting was great, and seriously, I hope that Mickey Rourke wins the Oscar. There, I said it. I have always thought he was a good actor, even though he’s kind of a cartoon at this point. And his face does look like it’s melting. I guess there’s just a soft spot in my heart for people that love their pets, and he thanked his dogs in his Golden Globes speech.
