My favorite movie ever. It's crazy how "Black Swan" got so much credit over this one. I do love every single movie i watched from Aronofsky but this is the real deal. Tomei was great and even got award credits for her amazing performance but Rourke here is just...flawless. I never saw a comeback bigger to this movie to any actor.

The story is pretty good, but it's Mickey Rourke's performance that makes this movie work as well as it does. Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood were great too, but Rourke was just fantastic and I loved his character.
