The Wrestler (Drama 2008)

I don't get why peeps online said this movie was good because it was only average, if that.

The story follows around this old-ass wrestler who has nothing other than his "career". When his body gives out after a random match, he tries to be a normal person with a normal job but that doesn't work because he lacks self-control. He also cannot reconnect with his estranged daughter for that exact same reason.

The film was all about this loser who continues being a loser...I found it very difficult to feel any sympathy at all towards his plight because he was a walking conglomeration of bad decisions. If you're poor you shouldn't really be spending any money on beer or lap dances, right?
