Cheapest I've seen this excellent film.

Darren Aronofsky directs this searing drama about a past-his-prime wrestler who tries to regain his earlier fame. Mickey Rourke (ANGEL HEART, SIN CITY) continues a career revival of his own as the fighter, while Oscar winner Marisa Tomei (IN THE BEDROOM, MY COUSIN VINNY) and Evan Rachel Wood (THIRTEEN, DOWN IN THE VALLEY) co-star. Rourke is Randy 'The Ram' Robinson, a one-time superstar of professional wrestling who's down on his luck, estranged from his teenage daughter (Wood) and clinging onto the remains of his career by appearing in brutally violent bouts that barely pay him enough to make the rent on his trailer park home. It soon becomes clear that his broken body is incapable of following through the determination of his plucky spirit and when he succumbs to a heart attack he finds himself at a crossroads where he must decide whether or not to continue his futile pursuit of celebrity or make amends with those that he has alienated.

After his somewhat ambitious flirtation with the science fiction genre in THE FOUNTAIN, director Aronofsky returns to Earth and back to the emotional human drama of his earlier REQUIEM FOR A DREAM. Having fallen from grace in his own professional life, Rourke delivers a towering performance as Robinson; a man whose career trajectory is so close to the actor's own, the film is given a staggering level of poignancy.

Such a great film, and at this price an absolute bargain! Thanks OP :)
#2
Amazing movie, well worth the price!
#3
Class movie.
#4
£3 instore HMV (Meadowhall, if not nationwide) - if anyone wanted it in person... probably should've posted a deal a few days ago

good film but hated the ambiguous ending.


i liked it.
#6
Great film but not one that I'd want to watch more than once though, pretty depressing. Better to rent rather than buy.
#7
awesome flick this. no brainer purchase
#8
Recorded on sky the other month. Probably the best film I have seen in the past sixth month. Funnily enough the next best film is probably Iron Man 2. Mickey Rourke really has come good lately! I have the hots again for Marisa Tomei after watching this movie.
#9
The best film of 2008. But avoid Black Swan as it is pretentious nonsense.

Seems this price in a few places. Was certainly £3 in HMV before Christmas. Cheapest online though so who am I to criticise? My film of the decade maybe too.
#11
One of the very few films i went to the Cinema for, is it bad that i knew who most of the wrestlers were? lol
#12

#13

Yeah I posted this under instore at fopp, so 1p cheaper at a website that isn't to everyones liking (mixed reviews on here) or instore at hmv depends if you dont mind the wait for delivery

I watched this not knowing what to expect.

If you like film it's simple, buy it.

Even at twice the price it would be worth it.

I watched it last night, thought it was great but the wife thought it was 'boring'
