Ignore who the Oscar committee considered the Best Actor of this year’s Academy Awards. Mickey Rourke’s portrayal of Randy “The Ram” Robinson, a wrestler passed his prime and coping with the harsh reality of retirement, was the greatest acting performance we’ve experienced since Deniro’s work in Raging Bull.
