The Wrestler

Baby Boomer line of the week: "I'm an old broken down piece of meat and I'm alone... I just don't want you to hate me." -The Wrestler

No, it's cool, a life of ideological narcissism at the expense of the next generation, no prob... oh, it's all crashing and all that you care about is that we don't hate you? not, "you're sorry" or "oops" even... No wonder the boomer press loved the movie... generational cop out... And then, after his one attempt to grow up is met with resistance: back to drugs, feeling good, living in the moment and leaving the next generation to deal with it... Awesome
