The hopes and dreams of four ambitious people are shattered when their drug addictions begin spiraling out of control. A look into addiction and how it overcomes the mind and body.
I wanted to but couldn't!
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
Unshakable, witty and deeply felt, the film will be paying emotional dividends for a long, long time.
To begin with I thought this is the kind of movie to show teenagers for them to understand the danger of drugs. I loved how this movie delivers the emotions these charactheres are going through by using this wonderful editing.
Wonderful movie and defenetly worth watching more than once.
Requiem for a Dream is one of the most gut-wrenching movies I have ever seen. It's fast paced and dives right into drug addiction. The characters stories makes them relatable. You begin to feel for them. The deeper they get into their addictions, they harder it is to watch. Towards the end, I caution anyone that has any issues with anxiety. I'm one that prides myself on my love of horror and the love of being afraid. This movie, however, shook me to my core. Would I watch it again? Not likely. Would I recommend it? No. Would I encourage someone to watch it if they wanted to? Definitely.
Since the first time i watched "Requiem for a Dream" ,i couldn't stop watching it over and over despite it is an extremely hard-to-watch film alongside A Clockwork Orange.
From the first shot until its powerful ,electric tragic end, this movie teaches you just how to look at the world and how to know about the ultimate destructive consequences of the drugs.
Jennifer Connelly here is powerful and magically beautiful ,Jared Leto is real true tragedy and so is Marlon Wayans whose known for being comedic as hell.
The real star here is Sara which steals the show.
My favorite drama film is this one. Don't watch it alone ,surely not in the night..
A fascinating downward spiral of both socially inaccepted and socially acceptable drugs. This non-glamorous view to a world beyond anyone's choosing could never be accused of making narcotics of any kind appealing.
