the following: - The 90's kicked the 80's ass back to the grave, which the movie failed to mention; Kurt Cobain came and saved us from the whole 80's scene, three records alone. God bless his soul. I feel sorry for the writer, this could've been good.
Un film apparentemente smielato ma che in realtà mostra la cruda realtà, mostra cosa vuol dire invecchiare dopo aver vissuto male la propria vita, e mostra come siano difficili le relazioni umane, un'Aronofsky un po più tra le righe forse, ma la sua regia rimane molto ricercata
More than being just the story of a wrestler facing retirement, this is about becoming old and facing the choices you made in life. Even though the film has a few easy sentiments that make it more accessible, they don't feel cheap, they actually touched me. Rourke acts very well, and is perfectly cut for the role. Life's a bitch, and then you die, so why not in the glamerous world you understand.
