I've been waiting a long time to see this trailer. Watch it here
We will all be hearing a great deal about this movie come award season. I've personally been very excited about it based on the unanimously positive advance word, and, more importantly, on the concept itself. Using a washed up, but brilliant actor like Mickey Rourke for a movie like this, a Darren Aronofsky movie like this, is the cinematic equivalent of Rick Rubin producing Johnny Cash's last records.
Unfortunately, after watching the trailer, I'm a little skeptical. It feels like a good indie festival movie, but nothing life changing. On the other hand, there are definitely a couple moments even in the trailer where hints of Rourke's acclaimed performance shines through. At the very least, you're guaranteed a good soundtrack anytime Bruce Springsteen is scoring a movie. I don't know, what do you guys think? Are you interested?
