Director: Darren Aronofsky
Starring: Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood
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 Tomei's ageless stripper bod as the icing on the pierced nipple.
YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
Axl Rose allowed Aronofsky to use "Sweet Child O' Mine," which is Randy's entrance music for his final match, free of charge.
