Mickey's Performance along with Darren's direction makes this my top pick of the year! Tomei and Rachel Evan Wood were also incredible in this movie, only gripe was Rachel not getting enough screen time. It is currently at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and it is an outstanding flick. I was fortunate enough to catch a screening in San Diego and Darren did a Q@A with the audience. In one scene he let Mickey go at it while serving Deli-Customers at a local market. The scene was priceless and also showed the softer side of Mickey Rourke. In the land of over the top budget action flicks and sub par acting do yourself a favor and see this film, you won't regret it!
