I love this film. It has me gripped from start to finish. I can't find any fault with it whatsoever. Great cast, great story, great direction, brilliant characters and it is really moving at times.
That scene when he talks about being a "broken down piece of meat" gets me every time. Mickey Rourke should have had an oscar for it.

Life can be emotionally taxing and bleak and Aronofsky goes there.
My thoughts exactly

The movie is great, too bad only 1% of members had the pleasure of watching it.
Those aren't bad, but for his 80's films i'll go Pope of Greenwich village

The Wrestler is an amazing film. Darren went that step better with Black Swan (actually more of an Earth-shattering leap!) but The Wrestler is a wonderfully tragic and emotional character study. The ending is very powerful and Mickey rourke is phenomenal. He would've won the oscar is he hadn't upset the acadamy awards!

9/10
