Functional Dysfunction

I smell Oscar (male supporting) for Christian Bale. Just look at him, he kills himself for every role. He really steals every scene he is in. Yet The Fighter, in all its parts, works very well. Wahlberg's commitment as a fighter (Micky Ward) from the wrong side of the tracks is only outweighed by his family loyalty. To think this is a true story only added to my buy-in. It was also nice to know that as the story and his fight results are based on fact I was not victim to the cornball Hollywood ending. More to come as I watch all the Oscar hopefuls.
