Shattering expose of the fallible human condition.
What to say about Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream that hasn’t been said already? Without doubt it’s a film, that in spite of its high standing on the main movie sites, polarises opinions. It’s a film that in simple terms follows four people through their addictions until the shattering denouement, but the journey is made more bleak by offering tantalising snatches of hope, the dreams of the protags offered up as some sort of goals for the addicts to cling on to – only for the narrative to stick in its rusty serrated blade to draw the lifeblood from the hapless hopefuls.
Arononfsky brings a multitude of technical skills to the party that emphasise the emotional discord on show. Standard split-screening is married up with rapid cutting, isolated framing, close ups, long tracking and Snorricam, all of which is sound tracked by Clint Mansell’s haunting musical composition. All told it’s an assault on all the senses and terrifying with it, boosted no end by Aronofsky getting top performances from his cast of actors. Love it or hate it, it’s a film that simply can’t be ignored, unsparing cinema produced by a most gifted director. 9/10
Only my second viewing of this, last time probably was when it came out on DVD, and not one I’ll re-watch anytime soon, but still a great drama featuring incredible performances, most notably Ellen Burstyn who was worthy of her Oscar nomination. Has some darkly wild moments and a swing in tones, guess giving viewers insights into the highs and lows of heroine use. Not entertaining in so much as fascinating film worth it for some of the visuals and acting. **4.5/5**
Disturbing, Graphic and Great
I went to this movie hearing plenty of buzz about how graphic the content was. Over the course of the movie you see just how Aronofsky wants to send his message to the audience. The characters start off with somewhat mild addictions and then next thing you know the four main characters are living in hell. I couldn’t believe how low they all fell. This movie may be the greatest anti-drug message of all time. I dare anybody to watch this and to not be touched and frightened by these characters. Before the movie started I noticed the audience was quite loud and garrulous, but as it ended and the credits rolled the whole place was stone cold silent. It was amazing.
As a whole I felt the movie was excellent. The visuals were well done and the editing was outstanding. The actors really put themselves into their roles. Jared Leto and Jennifer Connelly had very good chemistry, while Marlon Wayans showed he is a talented actor and not just a talented comic. Ellen Burstyn. Wow! She was amazing. I can’t believe an older woman would allow herself to be filmed like that. She has some serious guts. Hands down the best female performance I’ve watched this year, not even close. I was totally amazed by her.
All in all, I would say Requiem For a Dream is a great movie. It had a profound impact on me and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since I watched it on opening night. I definitely recommend this movie to anyone. This is a movie everyone should see, but unfortunately not enough will.
Requiem for a Dream
Trainspotting showed the pleasure of them, Blow showed the selling of them, and this clever drama shows the effects of addiction to drugs, from director Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler). Basically the story revolves around the lives of four individual characters, and what they experience as they take their quantities of drugs. These are Sara Goldfarb (The Exorcist’s Oscar and Golden Globe nominated Ellen Burstyn) who is hooked on game shows and sweet foods, desperate to lose weight with diet pills, that she gets addicted to and overdoses, causing hallucinations, increased loneliness, and eventually she goes to hospital, after going to the game show studio and looking a drugged up wreck. Then her heroin addict son Harry (American Psycho’s Jared Leto), along with his friend Tyrone C. Love (Scary Movie’s Marlon Wayans) who both pawn a TV for a new one, and for drugs money, and Harry unfortunately is victim to overdose, but Tyrone pays the price being put in prison for possession. Finally, Harry’s girlfriend Marion Silver (A Beautiful Mind’s Jennifer Connelly) is helping with their drug dealing and profit, but is degrading herself by spending time at stag parties with other men. Also starring Flubber’s Christopher McDonald as Tappy Tibbons, Happiness’s Louise Lasser as Ada and Volcano’s Keith David as Little John. This film uses clever split-screen technique, fast paced montage-like moments, especially when characters take their drugs, huge close-ups and exaggerated sound effects, all creating convincing highs and lows of drug taking. The cast is very good, the film is almost all disturbing, the music by Clint Mansell throughout is great, and the theme is very powerful, it has been called one of the most depressing films ever made, but it is an essential drama to see. Very good!
