Brutal and honest, The Wrestler is a film that gives you a glimpse into the life of an ageing wrestling champion from the eighties that continues his career way beyond his prime.
It got 98% in Rotten Tomatoes and this time I have to agree with the hive mind. Brilliant, stupendous film!
Everything is right with it: the writing, the actors, the lighting, the colours, the sounds, the way it progresses. It is entertaining even though some of the scenes are excruciatingly gruesome.
If you are a woman, or if you usually read romance novels, please vote on your favorite covers for my new book. You can vote for as many options as you like but I ask you to please vote on just the ones you really like.
Of course these images are not the real covers. They are blurry and filled with stray lines and visual muck because they are just mock-ups (prototypes). If you have trouble concentrating on the content because of the visual “noise”, try squinting. ;)
Any of these could go with the story, so don’t worry about that. Imagine you are in a bookshop and you see these books. Which would you peruse?
We spent a lovely and sunny Saturday afternoon with some friends, enjoying our neighbourhood’s public park, the Volkspark Friedrichshain.
