Finally binged on movies over the weekend, convincing the wife to tag along as we saw SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, THE WRESTLER and FROST/NIXON (which was actually her choice).
All three are solid films, all make my top 10 of the year at this point.
Still, I'm finding that the movie that really sticks with me is THE WRESTLER. There's something just oddly perfect about it, from Mickey Rourke (who is so seamless in this part it hardly feels like acting), to the whole world in creates, to a strong of griity/real scenes that keep it involving throughout.
It's not for everyone. Blood does flow, and there aren't any pat resolutions here.
But it's a grabber. And as a bonus, Marisa Tomei gets nekkid.
