Requiem for a Dream (2000) Darren Aronofsky
A kick in the guts. That’s how it feels to watch Requiem for a Dream, the second film by American filmmaker Darren Aronofsky. Requiem for a Dream is a dark psychological drama film that tells the story of four people becoming increasingly addicted to drugs. It’s based on the novel of the same name by Hubert Selby Jr., with whom Aronofsky wrote the screenplay. What sets this movie apart is the style and the music. Montages of ultra short shots, time-lapse photography, extreme closeups, split-screens and more are brilliantly mixed and perfectly accompanied by a masterful score. Be excited!
