an amazing movie by darren aronofsky.
instead of wasting class time for kids with D.A.R.E., just show them this movie.
it may permanently traumatize them, but they sure as hell won't be doing drugs any time soon.


also, which most people seem to neglect, an amazing, sad, almost painfully beautifully written novel by hubert selby jr. which, you guessed it, the movie is based upon.
don't show 'requiem to a dream' to anyone tripping or suicidal.

but you should read the book, too.

Amazing movie, probably the best of the century. Great editing, sequences, direction, acting, storyline and execution of the book.
Me: You seen Requiem for a dream?
Someone: No
Me: It's all about how your addictions can fuck you up, set in Brooklyn.

Really good book, written by Hubert Selby, Jr. in 1978, published by Thunder's Mouth Press. It depicts three people's spiral deep into addiction on their dreams and drugs.
"I want more drugs."
"Then go get them."
"Okay."

A crazy movie which trys to show you what addictions can do to you. Kind of brutal. Uses alot of fancy editing.
When the movie ended, Mike sat there for a few moments and then thought to himself " What the fuck just happened?" Time to cut out the heroin
