The Emergence of 'The Wrestler'
I wasn't too excited about this film until I saw this trailer. Mickey Rourke seems to be on a streamline toward his first Oscar nomination, if this is any indication. This is probably the last trailer of any of the major fall films, so I guess we are finally at the point where intangible buzz gives way to actual opinions of the films as they're seen. Part of me still feels that this small gem will sneak into the Best Picture shortlist, but as all of the films are being dumped into theaters in December, we (well, I) have a lot of watching to do.
