Two Line Reviews - #155

Movie: Requiem for a Dream (2000)

Plot: 4 individuals - A mother,her son,his friend & his lover - have their own dreams in life. In their dream realisation path comes DRUGS and it shatters each of them to unimaginable proportions in a span of just a year.

  • If DRUG ABUSE is the message Aronofsky wanted to deliver, he delivers that right into the head of the viewer with a style that can even be termed 'mentally disturbing'.
  • The acting of the 4 addicts are great. Especially that of Ellen Burstyn who plays the TV addict Sara Goldfarb.
  • Wonderful editing,strange camerawork & the music. The violin soundtrack is as shattering as it is inspiring.
  • Too crude. Not an easy watch for normal audience.
  • The drugs,drugs and drugs scenes though crisp are repetitive. 
My Rating: 9.3/10
