Neil Best leaves no stone unturned in the world of sports media.
'The Wrestler' well worth seeing, but not for squeamish
Finally saw "The Wrestler" Saturday night, which is sort of in my jurisdiction, as it is about a sort-of sport.
As advertised, Mickey Rourke is excellent, as is Marisa Tomei. (She's 44? Really?)
The movie works mostly as a character study, as the plot is not particularly original or complicated.
Overall, well worth seeing, although seeing much of it will be difficult for the squeamish.
Memo to self: Next Valentine's Day, choose a movie more romantic than one involving the use of a staple gun by one bare-chested man upon another.
