The Wrestler ist Mickey Rourke"s comeback — I"m notfall exactly certain from where, but it go a number on his face. Wie man he came to be a star in 1982 an Diner, he was lean und self-contained and perpetually amused, together if smiling punkt some private dirty joke; his voice was soft und seductive.

These days, his face zu sein a swollen mask, his voice about in octave lower. But in this movie his ruined appearance works. He"s such a mess, sie want zu see him triumph.

Rourke theatre aging pro-wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson, when a stern on ns circuit, und he has lang yellow hair and looks like a stop lion — favor hell, but in his catastrophic way, beautiful. Now, though, he"s alone, forsaken, clinging kommen sie his career an spite des a failing body.

He once abandoned his wife und child. His daughter, played über Evan Rachel Wood, won"t talk kommen sie him, and he resorts to reaching out to die only frau who gives him any warm — in aging stripper that calls herself Cassidy (Marisa Tomei), who has ns grace not to let er see her eyes wander an search of other lap-dance customers.

But we know that also if Randy bonds through her und somehow breaks with his daughter"s anger, he"ll screw it all up, because, ~ all, he"s just good for one thing an life, even if it kills him.

Director Darren Aronofsky und writer robert D. Siegel conceived the film for Rourke; they put ihm on a pedestal — und at times on a cross. Allusions zu Christ space everywhere: bei opponent"s outlandish use of staple gun provides Randy"s rückseitig look as if it has actually been lashed. Cassidy even mentions ns carnage in The Passion des the Christ.

The Wrestler zu sein predictable, corny, heavy-handed, but with Rourke on die wire und acting his love out, that gets right into your bloodstream. Aronofsky"s style zu sein radically subjective. His vocabulary changes zu match his characters" altered states. The natur of the high is different in every movie: It was swirling und fractured bei Pi, feverish und then hazy in the junkie dramatisch Requiem for a Dream, and transcendentally romantic an the over-the-top epos The Fountain.

In The Wrestler, he induces a state of masochistic ecstasy — the oneness Randy feeling with ns universe wie man he"s an that mythically garish costume und is pummeled und cut and watches his blood fliegen onto ns canvas prior to shrieking crowds.

Even though ns wrestlers room friendly backstage und clue one another in on die abuse to come, die pounding lock take zu sein ferocious, and we lakers the world through Randy"s swim perceptions — we lakers that smashing other peoples" heads and getting his very own smashed rückseitig really does complete him. Next to these bouts, the ones bei Raging Bull seem choose Japanese tea ceremonies. Bei one scene, Randy hides a small razor in his costume and, down weil das the count, slices open his face to make die gore even splashier. The rises an triumph, und throws back his head. It"s together if he"s saying, "I bleed, therefore ich am."
