The story of four lives and the consequences of their addictions. A brutally honest, sad and powerful portrayal of the effects of drugs, which clip the wings of the character’s dreams and aspirations. A downward spiral of addiction and destruction of one’s self, fueled by the constant pursuit of happiness. Outstanding camera work and editing. Fascinating performances, especially from Ellen Burstyn and Jared Leto. A heartbreaking and emotionally powerful picture.
“Requiem for a Dream” is an essential introduction to the cinema of Darren Aronofsky. Based on the book by Hubert Selby Jr.. Memorable and mesmerizing soundtrack by Clint Mansell and the Kronos Quartet – “Lux Aeterna”.
