Dismissed as too depressing in 1988, Mickey Rourke's self-penned turn in Homeboy brings an aura of sorrow more nuanced and poetic than that of his celebrated performance in The Wrestler.

Johnny never gets a direct answer as to whether he could have been good or not, but the film gives the viewer enough images, not words, to decide for himself.
