Picasso said that art is the ultimate perpetration of fraud. What he really meant was this is all bullshit. See, a piece of paper or the canvas and the paint, it all costs a few bucks. The finished product goes for a million dollars!

since i watched the wrestler i've been on a kick of renting mickey rourke movies and aside from the wrestler i'd say this is his best performance i've seen so far. he was just so good in this movie. he shows so much emotion and still pulls off the whole tuff guy bad ass thing. mickey rourke is effing cool man.
the guy who plays bullet's older brother also really stands out to me. he definitely had crazy, paranoid war vet down.
and bullet's best friend was funny as hell. what a joke.
i heard mixed reviews about this movie so i decided to go in without expecting much and i was pleasantly surprised. i really enjoyed it.
it's not a feel good movie. it has lots of funny bits (for those of us with a sick sense of humor) but at the same time it is quite serious and i think people can learn from it. it may sound cool to be hard and tuff but watch this movie. i think the main intention of the movie was to show kids what street life can do to people (which of course had been done before in other films but its still good).
anyway... they say that this one of mickey rourke's few good moments in that point of his acting career and i would definitely encourage people to check it out.
