The Wrestler - Trailer

Holy crap, it's the biography of every wrestler ever. Mickey Rourke is channelling some powerful washed-up wrestling zeitgeist there.

The problem with "drama" cinema is it's so hard to tell the moving masterworks from the dreary slogs based entirely on the trailer.

Fuck off Phrancq, that was pretty damn awesome.
It'll more than likely be a completely false telling of what Wrestling's actually like (though there's actually never been a correct one), but regardless it looks to be one hell of a film, definately gonna go see it.

Actually I'm struck by how much the footage looks like things like Beyond The Mat. They're obviously drawing on stuff like that for source material.
