Spoiler alert: If there’s one problem facing Darren Aronofsky‘s The Wrestler in terms of older Academy viewers (i.e., 50-plus), it’s probably the scene involving metal staples. I say this as an admirer of this scalding character drama, and as a major supporter of Mickey Rourke‘s shot at landing a Best Actor nomination. But without going into specifics, the scene I’m alluding to didn’t draw me in or win me over by any stretch. It’s just a speed-bump thing so I recovered and moved on, but the memory of it…wow.
