Shane and I rented The Wrestler (2008) (#108 in IMDB’s Top 250) tonight. The film centers around Randy the Ram, a professional wrestler past his prime. Randy is barely making ends meet by working small time wrestling shows and as a grocery store employee. After suffering a near fatal heart attack, he comes to terms with the consequences of his life choices and tries to reestablish a relationship with his daughter. I think I was expecting too much out of this movie or it just isn’t my kind of film. The acting was phenomenal. The story was moving and real. However, I can’t see myself wanting to watch it again. I would still recommend seeing it.
