“The Wrestler” (2009)

Yeah, yeah, Mickey Rourke turned in an amazing nuanced performance, subdued and beaten in the real world, powerful and assured in the ring, but the scenes in The Wrestler that I found to be most realistic were in the strip club.

Man, some of those awkward, are-they-friends-or-are-they-working conversations between (naked nearly all the time) Marissa Tomei and Mickey Rourke could have been lifted straight from my life circa 1992-’98.

When I pointed this out, Kevin said after the movie, “It’s apparently not just you, after all.”

(I should write a full review but this should suffice for now.)
