Reviews

Acclaim for the Film

"Mickey Rourke plays the battered, broke, lonely hero, Randy ('The Ram') Robinson. This is the performance of his lifetime, will win him a nomination, may win him the Oscar." Roger Ebert, "Chicago Sun-Times

""The Wrestler is about the seductions of superficiality and the dull ache of living beyond one's moment. It stares with compassion at the man pinned on the mat and wonders how he'll ever get out of this one." Ty Burr, "Boston Globe

""Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler is one of the all-time exalted examples of an actor meeting a character and of each redeeming the other." Mick LaSalle, "San Francisco Chronicle

""Director, Darren Aronofsky, and the writer, Robert D. Siegel, have turned the story of this washed-up faux gladiator into a film of authentic beauty and commanding consequence." Joe Morgenstern, "Wall Street Journal

""Like Jack Palance in Requiem for a Heavyweight, the man you're watching not only has the role of a lifetime; he seems to be living it, too. The result is the most brutally honest performance of the year." Rex Reed, "The New York Observer
