One of the best films I've seen this year was The Wrestler. Everyone did a terrific job and it really shows. All the praise that Mickey Rourke is getting is well deserved and often overshadows the other actors' performances, but don't sleep on Marisa Tomei . She really pulled it off and even had my friend who I saw the film with say "I want to be as hot as Marisa Tomei when I'm in my 40's." The film breaks your heart, but you love that it does that and Bruce Springsteen's song is a perfect example. I'm rooting for The Wrestler and especially for Rourke at this year's Oscars.
Bonus; Mickey appeared on Charlie Rose last week, and you can watch the video over here, but note it clocks in at 54 minutes.
