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

This is the first movie I've seen from this director. He's one of my favorites and this movie has even been used in heroin rehab facilities. Looks great on Blu ray.Published 3 days ago by Nathaniel J.
I grew up with childhood friends like these portrayed in the movie. I had one that behaved very similar to Mr. Waynes character. Let me tell ya from experience... Read morePublished 19 days ago by Trail Boss
Based on the book of the same name by Herbert Selby. Follows the book well. An accurate and gritty portrayal of people caught up in the drug scene. Difficult to watch. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Paul C.
Brilliant and gut-wrenching. I waited years to watch this because I knew it would gut me and it did. Great cast, creative editing, tragic story. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Carol E. Drewes

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