    Jesus. My expression once the credits rolled was exactly what I was afraid of going in. Requiem for a Dream is one film I've avoided for awhile, and right now, I'm not sure whether I'm glad I've had the experience. It's powerful as all hell, and it'll leave you shaken to your core, but in the end Requiem is a film that does exactly what it sets out to do from the very beginning. It's a traumatizing trip, but it's…

    This was the only film that I haven't seen from Darren Aronofsky's filmography. Why is that? I love his films, from the ambitious masterpiece The Fountain to the subtle and intimate The Wrestler; Aronofsky is one of the greatest modern directors. So I finally sat down and watched, no, experienced Requiem For A Dream. And I am at a loss for words. Requiem For A Dream is simply astonishing, but also so disturbing and dark that I can't see myself…

    While visually impressive, the themes of Darren Aronofsky's Requiem For A Dream basically read like the journal of a sixth form student's poetry student who's just learnt about symbolism. Watch this sketch, replace the word 'cool' with 'addiction' and you're pretty much there.

    Everything happens all at once and thens ends all too quickly. I really don't know what to say.

    "Anybody wanna waste some time?"

    Forget DARE class and after-school specials, if society really wants to convey the horrors of drug addiction to youth, they should just play Darren Aronofsky's haunting masterpiece Requiem for a Dream for them. Outside of perhaps Trainspotting, never have the highs, lows, and horrors of serious drug addiction been captured as viscerally and as brilliantly as it is in this elegiac tale based on an incredible memoir by Hubert Selby Jr. of the same name.…

    Checked out the director's cut. I don't remember the original very well so I'm not sure what was changed. Still liked it but the acting is a little off at points.

    This film is so hardcore. I think the grittyness of the film is a good depiction of drugs. The first half of the film, everything seemed perfect, it's as if the drugs were making the characters' lives better. But slowly, their lives spiral downwards into a deep abyss of rage, depression, and intense passion. I would say the last 15 minutes of the film is the most powerful section of the film. Aronofsky does a quick cycle of montages of…
