15. The Wrestler (2008)
Director: Darren Aronofsky
Stars: Mickey Rourke, Evan Rachel Wood, Marisa Tomei
Mickey Rourke is phenomenal as an "old, broken down piece of meat" struggling to let go of a fading wrestling career while trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter. The melancholy moments are balanced by some surprisingly gruesome wrestling action. Just consider Marisa Tomei's ageless stripper bod as the icing on the pierced nipple.
