  1. Tom Amick Says:

    Mickey Rourke is brilliant on screen in “The Wrestler.” No one, and I mean no contemporary male actor 20, 10 years his junior, or even in his age range has the capacity to emote charisma, power, intensity, and raw human emotion in front of a camera so effectively. His soul-on-his-sleeve acting approach is riveting to every pair of eyes glued on his ravaged visage. The man has lived a hard life, but his heart is as big as the world.

    Mickey deserves an Oscar, but more importantly the respect of his peers and movie fans worldwide. BRAVO to Mickey, who has patiently waited for this kind of opportunity. Lady Luck came through, and man-o-man is his performance a doozy. I love you Mickey and couldn’t be happier for you. Alas, as an aside, check out his performances in “The Pope of Greenwich Village” and “Year of the Dragon.”

    Ciao, Tom Amick (currently taking up space in ATLANTA)
