Requiem for a Dream (2000)

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 have never been more disturbed by a movie ever. This was harsh, a really heavy movie. Fuck. The last few scenes was really… disturbing. Simply disturbing..

This is my personal favorite film of all time. Not that I’m trying to bring up a discussion here, because everybody’s entitled to their own opinion, but I'm starting to get fed up with people who state this movie is awful for the reason that they felt bad in general after seeing it, cried or even felt that it was too powerful to handle. A movie for me is a way to communicate and distribute point of view/feeling to the spectator and I prefer watching movies that is contributes a greater deal of emotions, whenever it’s feel-good or plain suicidal. Requiem For A Dream deserves a top position in my opinion vaguely just because there’s no other film that can possibly affect me so much as it did. A true masterpiece!
