Within the Ring, a 45-minute documentary going behind the scenes of The Wrestler, has been uploaded online. You’ll also be able to watch this doc when it appears on the Blu-Ray for Darren Aronofsky’s poignant character study that helped give Mickey Rourke’s career a second wind.
This film follows the day-to-day production schedule that lasted just 35 days in 37 locations. In it, Aronofsky discusses the many challenges to such a small scale production, putting Rourke to the test, and insight from other [actual]wrestlers.
