Storyline: Drugs. They consume mind, body and soul. Once you're hooked, you're hooked. Four lives. Four addicts. Four failures. Despite their aspirations of greatness, they succumb to their addictions. Watching the addicts spiral out of control, we bear witness to the dirtiest, ugliest portions of the underworld addicts reside in. It is shocking and eye-opening but demands to be seen by both addicts and non-addicts alike.

Not top 100 material.
I liked Requiem for a Dream but not enough to compensate its flaws. Ellen Burstyn was excellent and her story was fascinating to watch, but Jared Lato and his friends' far more tired tale kept interrupting it. It's old news that drugs are bad, and the original high will always be replaced by a mournful low, but why must it be so forcibly rammed down your throat. "Do drugs and you'll end up in a yokel prison getting racially abused, or you'll end up a prostitute, whoring yourself in front of 50 men for a fix, or you'll end up in a mental institute getting electro shocked back into coherence, or you'll end up an amputee!" It's all served up about as subtly as a sledgehammer to the forehead, with Guy Ritchie style fast cutting and camera tomfoolery.

I never particularly liked Trainspotting either but at least it handled the subject of drugs with a bit more common sense, there were consequences for drug abuse in most cases, they weren't ridiculously over the top and some people tried to sort themselves out. Requiem for a Dream is about as level headed as Mary Whitehouse. Anyone who goes near a drug ends up in abject misery.

I had heard so much about how this film would shock me and move me, how I'd love it but never want to see it again. Maybe this led to my expectations being too high but it had none of the impact of Irreversible or Dancer in the Dark (I know these are unrelated films, but I think they fit the description I'd been given).


`Drugs? ….. No, I don't do drugs!'
Pretentious and overrated
I really can't see what's so great about this movie. It was a big disappointment to me. I really tried to like it but I just couldn't. I think after seeing the reviews on here my expectations of the movie was way too high. The first 20-30 minutes of this movie was incredibly boring, I thought that maybe it was just to make us get to know the characters so I gave it some more time. Then after an hour had passed I realized that this wasn't going to get any better. (somehow the same feeling the characters have about their own lives in the movie) It seems like the moviemakers didn't want to make a movie, they wanted to make a masterpiece. It's like the movie is saying "hey look at me, have u seen anything better?!? Look at these cool camera-angles and these amazing close-ups. And I don't only look good I'm deep too." Anyway I don't buy it. Just because you show close-ups of an eye and pills thrown into mouths it's not automatically a great movie. I'm not impressed. Anyway I've noticed that with IMDB the newer the movie is the higher ratings it gets. If you want to see a movie about drugadiction watch "panic in needle park" or the german movie "christiane f" both those movies are far better than this one (and rated lower). I don't hate this movie but I can't for my life understand how so many people can love it. I'm giving this a 1. That might be unfair but it's just as unfair as the 8.5 that it has on here. If I see it again I sure hope I discover something new since it feels like I'm the only one in the world who's not impressed with this. Over 40% voted a 10 for this.
Over-rated morality tale
The real descent into the quagmire is the last 30 minutes of this film, not the characters within the film. According to this film this is what you can expect from drug abuse: 1. Being force-fed in a public hospital (have these people heard of the IV drip?) and then ECT without any form of anaethesia (every bone in that woman's body would have shattered)- did they take her to a hospital in Eastern Europe?? 2. People with severe septicaemia will be denied hospital treatment and thrown into a cell on suspicion of being a drug addict until they require amputation. Watch and learn - it's fine to be a junkie as long as you don't get caught. 3. A man will be allowed to vomit into food being prepared in a government run correction facility. If you are bad, you eat vomit. OK? 4. A middle class chick will end up on the other end of a black dildo in order to feed her drug habit. Yawn... I mean, this film says more about what kind of overblown morality Americans are willing to accept in films than anything about drug abuse or its consequences. The anti-drug message descends into hyperbole and farce and I found myself laughing hysterically where I was supposed to be shocked and repulsed. Give me a break. These sanitised stories are just too ridiculous. As well as this, we are offered the same old, same old routine of white-powder-imagery and colourful-pill-popping. These guys injected something and were bopping around the place, next minute they snort something and they are all on the nod...go figure? And please, the heavy handedness of the junkie losing an arm...spare me, I am not that easily shocked or unaware of symbolism-overkill.
Dead on
I first saw this movie three weeks out of a four month rehab for cocaine and heroine addiction. I had thrown away a professional career, personal relationships and all else for drugs.

On first viewing, I considered Requiem lightweight and overstated. Having participated in the activities depicted- and more- the movie seemed like yet another "Drugs Are Bad For You" movie.

I have since watched it several times and- seven years out of the drug life- its impact is very powerful. While no film will accurately portray the true events and effects of an overwhelming addiction, Requiem does convey the impact that such an addiction has on others.

This is on my Top Ten list and contains a worthwhile statement effectively delivered.
Electroshock therapy for shock value
Before I get to the electroshock therapy, this is a nicely made movie about the horrors of hard core drug use. It has some great performances and for sure the lives of hard core drug addicts are not played for laughs.

That said, the camera work was not my cup of tea.. The quickly edited and reused bit with the locks of the door being one example. The colour was as dreary as the subject matter, which is about as dreary as it gets. I tried to watch this movie when it came out and didn't make it through, watched it years later and had a better impression (finished it), but alas it's not one of my favourite drug use movies.

Drugstore Cowboy, Naked Lunch, Ed Wood (could probably think of others), for me are more enjoyable movies that demonstrate how sad the life of a drug dependent person can be. Those movies also have other stuff going on, so it's more like taking a small whiff of the outhouse stink rather than the way Requiem fully shoves your face right into the smelly feces of drug abuse. Dude loses his ARM!!! Their friendship will NOT last forever!! She is going to get ZAPPED BY ELECTRICITY!!!

That brings me to the portrayal of electroshock therapy in this movie.

This movie plays electroshock therapy for shock value and shock value only. If you ever meet anyone in real life who has had shock therapy or a family member who has, please don't think about this movie.

Unless the movie is supposed to be taking place in the 40s or 50s, MAYBE then I could see it. But if I remember correctly this movie is supposed to be set in either the late 80s or early 90s.

1. They put people under when they do electroshock therapy. No awake, staring eyes, bad for movie drama I know..

2. It is generally a last resort for chronic depression. The lady in the movie was psychotic, they would have tried lots and lots of other things first. From what I remember they basically just wheel her in and hook her up to some electricity.

3. They give muscle relaxants so people don't spasm and jerk around, broken bones and twitching around doesn't happen.

I've seen many peoples mood improve vastly with electroshock therapy and the worst thing I've seen is some STM loss (that generally returns). For most who run out of options and end up trying it their short term memories aren't ones they are going to cherish anyway.

To conclude, the actress who gets electric shocks was the only redeeming thing about this movie for me. She was fantastic. Perhaps I was being too literal and the procedure shown in the movie was supposed to be from her psychotic perspective and thus not realistic, but in any case the rest of the characters were not ones I'd revisit anyway just to see her sequence again.
No Future At All
Requiem For A Dream is one of the most depressing films I've ever seen in my life. These poor people from two generations are a lot like Anthony Quinn in Requiem For A Heavyweight. As a boxer Quinn in that film saw his career at an end and faced a very unpromising future. These people have no future at all.

I certainly recognized the Coney Island/Brighton Beach area of Brooklyn, an area of projects and an amusement area that has seen better days. Like Atlantic City, some in Coney Island eventually see casino gambling as the gimmick for a rebirth. If you see Requiem For A Dream, imagine it in that kind of Las Vegas type setting.

At one time Brighton Beach was a template for a working class Jewish paradise of sort with families housed in apartments that partially built with the backing of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union. Back when I was doing senior citizens crime claims at New York State Crime Victims Board, I can't tell you the number of claims from men and women who listed a small ILGWU pension as part of their income from that area. Such a woman is Ellyn Burstyn playing Sara Goldfarb.

Things haven't gone right for her. As the neighborhood decayed, so did her life and family. Her one son Jared Leto, a promising kid at one time is now a hopeless addict with an addict girlfriend in Jennifer Connelly and an addict best friend in Marlon Wayans.

I've known a few junkies in my time also. After a while they only have one thing on their mind, their particular addiction of choice and how to service it. Even if they want to rise in the dope trade business, they haven't got a head for business any longer.

Which in a nutshell is the position of Leto and Wayans with Connelly in support figuring her own habit can be taken care of by following their lead. Of course its disaster all around.

As for Ellyn Burstyn she gained Requiem For A Dream's only Academy Award recognition with a nomination for Best Actress. She's not just clueless about her son, she's caught up in her own chemical dependency. She dreams of her 10 minutes of fame on some daytime quiz show and gets herself nicely hooked on diet pills. Unlike her son, she does have some memories of better days and talks about them with her peers on the benches outside the apartments.

I recognized a lot of the Brighton Beach/Coney Island area of Brooklyn where this was all shot on location. Requiem For A Dream is a sad film about sad people, definitely one to bring you down from any kind of high you might be on.
Descending Into Junkie Hell.
One of the anti-drug slogans in the 80s was "Just say no," and it was given to us by not just the then First Lady, but by a slew of actors, many of them neck-deep into their own drug-induced binges fueled by too much money and a total lack of advice. If this movie had only come out then. Darren Aronofsky's powerful film REQUIEM FOR A DREAM is that ultimate slogan who never preaches its message: it just allows its presence to slowly filter itself into the images as the four people at the core of this story slowly begin to rot from the inside out as their "dreams" ultimately become replaced by the need to get high.

What begins as just another story of regular people living in relative complacency in Brooklyn, NY, each of them wearing their aspirations on their sleeves -- Sara Goldfarb to go on television; her son Harry and his friend Tyrone to make it big; Harry's girlfriend Marian to become an dress designer in her own right -- starts to go sour almost immediately. Sara, a widow living a lonely life, gets a call (or imagines it as it can be interpreted) that comes as a promise for things to get better: she will be a contestant in her favorite TV show which she watches compulsively as she downs sweets and to get slim for her Big Night she decides to take some "diet pills" to fit into her Red Dress. Harry and Tyrone experiment a little with the drugs they are selling and that leads to more and more and more. Into that web Marian is pulled, maybe out of her own displacement in the world, and since drugs passively target towards the displaced and the unwanted, making it all seem better -- we are informed that she is on the outs with her family even as they have given her full use of the apartment she lives in -- she falls under its spell.

One would think, though, that with drug usage things would change, perception would change. That we see Sara going through the motions not once, twice, but for hours and hours and hours on a stretch as the "diet pills" -- really speed -- take a hold over her is made more frightening when her own body starts cannibalizing itself and her own mind begins to wander. Her own security, her own privacy, literally becomes invaded one night as her own TV -- it in itself a source of addictive promises -- floods her own living room with a nightmarish game show that sends her screaming into the streets, Red Dress in tatters, a hag, still looking for her dream.

That we see relationships crumble -- Marian and Harry eventually become strangers to one another and any promise they will ever see each other again is hollow; Tyrone and Harry's friendship also collapses -- is only secondary to the power of storytelling and to the degrees that these characters descend in their addictions. At times it does seem too cruel to even watch: there is a sequence involving all of the character's final destiny that takes stomach to follow, but if the rot that addiction was still contained up until now, this final sequence -- the climax of the film -- lets all the pus out and sends it relentlessly out into the audience and not once are we let a moment's breath until it's over. There is a final, haunting sequence, one involving all of the characters crawling into a fetal position, destroyed beyond repair, that is heart-rending. These, after all, were once children and were safe (as Tyrone's last vision indicates).

The acting here is beyond all praise and material awards. Ellen Burstyn does what no actress yet has done in film history: push her physicality to extremes to convey an ordinary woman dehumanized by what she innocently thought were diet pills. She is a woman who could be anyone's mother, caught like a rabbit under a drug. All glamor and star ego goes out the window here -- and in doing so she single-handedly assured her Place in what is called being an Actress.

The same can be said with Jennifer Connelly in a role that could have been underwritten (and at times seems so) but in a move similar to Jennifer Jason Leigh she reveals herself so nakedly I'm almost sure her Best Supporting Oscar the following year was one a "consolation" award for being overlooked here. Both Jared Leto and Marlon Wayans come through with their lost yet sympathetic roles, Wayans more so, since we get that glimpse into his past and all he dreams is of being a good son to his Momma.

There is little relief but a painful compassion emerging from seeing REQUIEM FOR A DREAM. The Kronos Quartet and Clint Mansell create an equally tragic score (that has been used in promos for LORD OF THE RINGS), and contains images that already can be considered classic. Some may argue that Aronofsky goes too far with his message, but in doing so he strikes a nerve to anyone who sees this film.
First of all, don't watch this film if you are weak at heart. this is one bad trip. And it only gets worse until an unsatisfying ending. What is the point of this story? DON'T DO DRUGS. Jared Leto plays a junkie, Jennifer Connoly plays a junkie. Ellen Burstyn plays a woman who becomes a junkie. Junkie Junkie Junkie. Fast Paced clips does not help either. It is like those girls who comes out of the TV in all those very modern scary movies. Well it's well made and well casted. And if you are a sucker for drug movies, this is the one. Well one of them, not the best not the worst, but it's there. 6 out of 10, sensation is by far the word I would use. Pain is the answer to this movie. Pain to be alive, how much more emo could you get.
Couldn't watch but I couldn't look away
The last fifteen minutes of this film was some of the most horrifying yet gripping scenes I have ever seen. As the credits rolled I sat there motionless with my mouth agape. Everybody must see this movie. I wanted to look away so bad but yet I couldn't stop watching. Mesmerizing.
Amazing movie...Nothing like it.
There are a lot of great movies out there that make you think, this one stands out above all the rest. Friends have told me how disturbed they were after watching this and being someone not normally touched by movies I had to see it. I thought it would be just another druggie falls from the top type movie but I was in for a complete shock by the presentation of the situation. If you want to be blown away by a movie you need to see this. The end completely drained me emotionally, it should easily be higher on IMDb's list. There are drug movies like Blow and Scarface(I love both) and then there is a league of its own. I am yet to see a movie that i can relate it to.

The acting was superb, Jared Leto was incredible and completely believable. Ellen Burstyn showed one of the most heartfelt performances I believe I have ever seen. Jennifer Connelly played what I saw as the most mediocre performance of the main characters, but was still so much deeper than most characters you see today. Finally there was Marlon Wayans...He is so talented and showcases himself perfectly in this movie. All in all, this movie had an incredible plot, the camera work fit perfectly, and the cast put forth the best overall performances I can remember. WATCH THIS MOVIE
