Topic: Requiem For a Dream
I know some of you have seen the film Requiem for a Dream, but for those who havent seen it you should. This is one of the most captivating movies I have ever seen and it's a brutally honest and scary trip down the roads of drug addiction. It is a film that you get sucked in by and no matter how harrowing the story gets, you cant turn away. It will keep you brain going for months after you have seen it. It might be one of the most depressing movies ever to be made, and is by far the best anti-drug movie I have ever seen. I think this movie should be shown to kids in school during drug use prevention programs because it is far scarier than any animated cartoon or stories. I read one review who's title line puts it best and that is "It's like being repeatedly punched in the back of the head by Mike Tyson". This is so true.
I just got the DVD for 3.99 at best buy and it will probably sit in the plastic for some time until I can build the nerve to watch it again. It definately hasnt left my mind since I first saw it. It is a truly unforgettable film.
Any thoughts on the film for those who have seen it?
