    Every bit as brilliant (and traumatic) as I remembered.

    One of my more shameful films I had yet to see. It's been nearly 3 weeks since I saw this now.. what still stands out:

    - Ellen Burstyn's performance. Part of it is the crazed camerawork as her mental capacities start to wander and the apartment begins to morph and shift out of control, but her range here is just fun to watch. A Best Actress Oscar nomination well deserved.
    - Jennifer Connelly is not very ugly.
    - the 'quick…

    If this is an anti-drug movie, it's also an anti-doctor movie too. Every physician here is a person with little care towards the patient, either just going thru the motions of their duties, or trying to make an extra buck. It's as if the The Hippocratic Oath never existed in the medical field for this film, and the medical assistants/nurses are even worse. I know there's some bad/poor doctors out there, but there's also a lot of good ones. Perhaps…

    Is it weird that my biggest takeaway from Requiem For A Dream is that Jennifer Connelly was the most beautiful woman alive in 2000? Crikey, my heart.

    Anyway, the movie never mentions the drug being abused by Harry/Tyrone/Marion; she's almost definitely on coke, my best guess for Harry/Tyrone is shooting meth, though it could also be coke. Again, movie doesn't say. What I can say with relative confidence is that it isn't heroin as various reviews/Flixter description states. Heroin won't…

    My least favourite film for so many reasons. The most cynical film I've ever watched and the least aesthetically pleasing film I've ever watched. Sorry.

    This was THE movie that really got me to appreciate the art of cinema.

    I was 14 when I first saw this one. Back in the days when I went between borrowing a bunch of movies from the local library, and obsessively watching IFC. Back when their promo reels played at least half of Jesus Of Suburbia and commercials would wait until the end of a movie to start. Back when I walked to that library for 20-30 minutes, back…

    At this point, it's safe to say that addiction truly is a disease. With heartbreaking news of deaths from overdose become a recurring part of our society, substance abuse has proved to be just as harmful as any other disease circulating Earth and infecting humanity. In 2009, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that there were approximately 29,000 unintentional drug overdose deaths in the United States alone. The harrowing results of such overdoses are the foundation of Darren…

    One of the very few movies that I have watched more than once, even more than twice. This movie was very very great. I have to admit that the first time I watched it because of Jared Leto (was a big fan of 30 Seconds to Mars). The movie was depressing, though. Four lives being destroyed - what can be great about this? But how every character depends on another and how each one of them still has the chance…
