The Commute, like Darren Aronofsky's 2008 film The Wrestler, contrasts a wrestler's public and private persona. However, this combatant is not tragic or self destructive. Most affecting for me is his voice when he growls and threatens during his news conferences as opposed to when he speaks softly to his wife and little daughter. I came away liking Matthew Bloom very much and hoping he finds a different career before long. The film has some shots of Bloom walking through the desert, apparently to give his Commute a symbolic dimension, but I think the scenes of him and his family sitting on the sofa say it all. The film was entered in the Lake Arrowhead Film Festival in 2011 and I think it's fair to say it was very well received.
