On "The Wrestler"

It's been nearly two months since I first saw it, but I finally got around to reviewing The Wrestler.

From The Dispatch:
Aronofsky wisely steps back and allows the story and the characters to speak for themselves. Rourke, for his part, has never been better, and his performance is truly astonishing, while his co-stars, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood, more than rise to the challenge. They navigate the film's tough emotional waters and emerge with some of the year's best performances. But the film really belongs to Rourke. He makes it what it is, and his presence carries the film with the sad charisma of a wounded animal, still dangerous and as majestic as ever.
