    Requiem for a Dream is a profoundly well-made film. The performances are outstanding, the story is gripping, and the artistry is wonderful. It is beautiful, tragic, horrifying, and utterly brutal. And I never want to watch it again.

    I would like to say first that this is one of my all-time favourite films, the range of emotions captured perfectly through Aronofsky's lens make this film almost as anthemic as it's soundtrack!

    Firstly, to elucidate a little upon the kind of raw power and emotional punch this movie packs with it, are the words of Hubert Selby Jr. This is the man who written the original novel "Requiem for a Dream", his response to the film is that it…

    This film may be tough to watch, but it's one of the best films out there.

    I found this film so intensely disturbing that I could not get it out of my head for the past few days ever since I first saw it. The score is just perfect and fits the film in every way and the way each character is spun and characterized gives the viewer an insight that's difficult to forget. I can't quite put my finger on why it is rooting itself so deeply inside of me but I cannot stop thinking about it.

    One of the coolest junky movies. Great music, which is used for everything now. Awesome story that makes you really feel good about life...

    If Aronofsky had successfully kept the tone more consistent, I might have considered this to be one of my all-time favorite movies. At the time I saw it, I knew I had witnessed something special and unlike anything I've ever experienced, including my first panic attack. Now that I know what to expect, I'm actually a little perturbed at how far Aronofsky (and Selby, Jr) decides to go. I understand why the final act takes place, to show us the…

    You may think this movie is over rated, but it isn't, go watch it if you haven't.

    Talk about a harrowing experience. Less about dreams per se than a steady and frightening look at addiction (but isn't a dream an addiction as well?). The visual style is singular and perfectly suited to the hazy yet terse story. Ellen Burstyn is just sensational, and I mean that in the literal sense.

    The last 10 minutes of the film had my heart racing in a way that a film hasn't done in a long time. You can totally see…

    Muy intensa, cuando la terminas de ver sientes como si te dieran con un martillo en la cabeza, todo esto en una perspectiva positiva ya que es un buen film, con buenas actuaciones.

    For the things that kept taking me out of the film, the fact that my heart was pounding from its stunning conclusion until well after the film had ended shows what powerful storytelling is taking place here.

    We start with Summer, and our characters have a sort of depraved hopefulness. We end in Winter which... suffice to say is the opposite of Summer. The brilliance in these characters is that we want them to be happy, we just don't want…
