Requiem For A Dream (2000)

(Downloaded, February 2002) In a nutshell, the message of this film is that drugs are bad for you. Simplistic? Well, yes, but you’ve never seen it expressed in such a visceral fashion: Director Darren Aronofsky packs tremendous audiovisual impact in his narrative, and the result is a memorable film that will stay with you a long time. The four protagonists’ progressive descent into hell is implacable and merciless. Watching Requiem For A Dream is a lot like being repeatedly struck by two-by-fours. You’ll enjoy it and ask for more, because this is cutting-edge cinema. It’s not safe, it’s not boring and it’s certainly not average. You might not want to see it twice, but you have to see it at least once.
