The film focuses on a quartet of doomed souls, but it's Ellen Burstyn--in a raw and bravely triumphant performance--who most desperately embodies the downward spiral of drug abuse. As lonely widow Sara Goldfarb, she invests all of her dreams in an absurd self-help TV game show, jolting her bloodstream with diet pills and coffee while her son Harry (Jared Leto) shoots heroin with his best friend Tyrone (Marlon Wayans) and slumming girlfriend Marion (Jennifer Connelly). They're careening toward madness at varying speeds, and Aronofsky tracks this gloomy process by endlessly repeating the imagery of their deadly routines. Tormented by her dietary regime, Sara even imagines a carnivorous refrigerator in one of the film's most memorable scenes. And yet... does any of this have a point? Is Aronofsky telling us anything that any sane person doesn't already know? Requiem for a Dream is a noteworthy film, but watching it twice would qualify as masochistic behavior. --Jeff Shannon
If you ask anyone who has seen this movie what they felt like after, they will all say the same thing.
This film is a depiction of reality, a very particular reality, that of people being addicted to heavy drugs and the lives they lead.
Requiem for a Dream is quite possibly the most emotionally powerful, and viscerally disturbing film I've ever seen.
Probably the most intense film I've ever watched, other than American History X. It is a very good film, but is definitely graphic. A good look into addictionPublished 1 day ago by Melissa
Watch this in a darkened room. Remove all distractions; turn off your phone, ignore family and friends. Concentrate. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Steven
This was one of those movies that I almost rented on multiple occasions but kept passing over for movies whose covers and short descriptions looked newer and more interesting. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Thomas Kitchen

I think if you showed this film to a 9th grade health class, you would be looking for a new job the next day.
