One of the most awful movies ever
I'll never understand why so many reasonable people think so highly of this movie. It contains some of the worst dialogue ever written -- every sentence ends with a period and the speech has no flow or rhythm. The plot is so outlandish, it is more like Reefer Madness than real life. Darren Aronofsky directs movies for high school kids to watch and think that they are the only people smart enough to "get it."

This movie is more of a public service announcement than an artistic endeavor, and the message of the film is one that every American kid learned in D.A.R.E -- Drugs are bad. If you want to watch something about addiction, watch the Wire or read Infinite Jest, but whatever you do don't waste your time watching this movie.
A complete waste of time disguised as "art"
Following up his pseudo-intellectual claptrap "Pi", Aronofsky gives us another example of his inability to direct anything other than an hour and a half long music video. And a poor one at that. Any comparisons to "A Clockwork Orange" are completely off the mark. While I'm no fan of that movie, either, I'll admit that Kubrick had talent.

Basically, rather like some other inexplicably popular movies, such as "Boogie Nights", this movie is akin to being stuck in a room full of crackheads for two hours, and we're supposed to find it not only interesting, but tragic. Sorry, but no go. I care not one whit for any of the characters in this movie, and wish they'd all just go away.

For me, this is the filmic equivalent of one of those books you get so mad at, that you just want to throw it across the room.
Hollywood at its best!!!!!
Ellen Burstyn blew me away in this film! This is her best role so far!

This movie is about four drug addicts. They all have dreams, but as dependence on drugs is increasing, their dreams are turning into nightmares.

The acting is phenomenal. The story and how Aronofsky tells the story is just fantastic! The music is extraordinary. The cinematography is amazing! The directing is great. I also love how Aronofsky expresses his feelings without words and body language but with camera!

I've almost seen a thousand of movies and no movie has ever affected me like this one!

Even though this movie is amazing, I warn you: This movie will haunt you for several days!

Mr.Aronofsky has done a great job, if you feel sick,depressed or got the feeling that you're not going to touch drugs, after you've seen this movie! The movie is very brutal,tragic and honest. I hope you stay off drugs after you've seen this!

This is a cinematic masterpiece and a fantastic work of art!

This film is about as cheap a play on emotions as you can get. A lot of people found this film offensive because it was graphic and brutal, I found it offensive because it treated me like an idiot.

It's like, OK, I want to make a film that people will walk out and say "Wow, that really affected me, what an intense and touching film!" So, I'll get four characters, and I'll just screw 'em up real bad. That's all it's gonna be, I'm just gonna try and think of the worst way I can possibly screw each of them up, and then I'll screw 'em up - and people will come out bawling, thinking that, "well, I'm bawling, so it MUST have been a good film!"

Without being too harsh, the film did have a few (but only a few) good things about it, mainly visual things. However, the predominant feature of Requiem for a Dream is it forcefully trying to squeeze emotion out of you. I'm sorry, but there's more to a good film than just something which crudely forces you to feel shaken and sick in the stomach. A good kick below the belt will achieve a similar effect, and any idiot can do that. Sure, make a film that will make us feel shaken and hurt, but do it creatively! Don't just go for the easiest, bluntest, most transparent and hollow option! 'Cause the only emotion I felt when the credits came up in Requiem for a Dream was a slight anger for paying to see it and then laughter when I saw tears in the eyes of the person next to me. Because since the 'emotion-squeezing' didn't work on me, I was pretty bored throughout the film as there was little else to it.

4/10. See PI instead.
Absolutely one of the most overrated films of all time
You know, the problem with this flick is that the director is really good, the actors are really good, but the plot is just too stinking far fetched. I mean, come on, a little girl on girl sex is NOT something to get really upset about. I mean, working in an office for a living is a LOT worse than that. There are literally thousands of women who do that sorta thing for a living.

And then there's the problem with the guy and his arm. First problem with that is that no junkie, NO JUNKIE, would keep shooting into a vein that is that messed up. Junkies are not that stupid. They have their own lore and protocols, that they pass to each other, and that includes using different veins. Aronofsky obviously has never met a real life junkie. And that crap about getting arrested out of a doctors office. ANYWHERE in this country, if a doctor refused him medical treatment, dang, even if a doctor called the cops on the guy, that doctor would get his ass sued from here to eternity. There's something called doctor patient privilege, they're not ALLOWED to call the cops, ever, under any circumstances, barring a direct threat to someone else's life. AND if the was imprisoned, denied treatment, and then lost his arm, attorney's would be lining up to sue not only the doctor, but the state where he was imprisoned.

SO, even if the the incredibly unlikely event that the junkie let his arm go that bad, then the astronomically unlikely event that a doctor would risk being sued and losing his license to practice medicine by calling the cops, and THEN the cosmically ludicrous event that the guy would be denied medical treatment by the prison, he would STILL have lawyers lining up for the fat 50% fee they'd get from suing all those people.

The movie is about as tragic as if they'd all somehow won the lottery and then been struck by lightening the following day.

Requim for a Dream is not depressing, it's laughable.
No Future At All
Requiem For A Dream is one of the most depressing films I've ever seen in my life. These poor people from two generations are a lot like Anthony Quinn in Requiem For A Heavyweight. As a boxer Quinn in that film saw his career at an end and faced a very unpromising future. These people have no future at all.

I certainly recognized the Coney Island/Brighton Beach area of Brooklyn, an area of projects and an amusement area that has seen better days. Like Atlantic City, some in Coney Island eventually see casino gambling as the gimmick for a rebirth. If you see Requiem For A Dream, imagine it in that kind of Las Vegas type setting.

At one time Brighton Beach was a template for a working class Jewish paradise of sort with families housed in apartments that partially built with the backing of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union. Back when I was doing senior citizens crime claims at New York State Crime Victims Board, I can't tell you the number of claims from men and women who listed a small ILGWU pension as part of their income from that area. Such a woman is Ellyn Burstyn playing Sara Goldfarb.

Things haven't gone right for her. As the neighborhood decayed, so did her life and family. Her one son Jared Leto, a promising kid at one time is now a hopeless addict with an addict girlfriend in Jennifer Connelly and an addict best friend in Marlon Wayans.

I've known a few junkies in my time also. After a while they only have one thing on their mind, their particular addiction of choice and how to service it. Even if they want to rise in the dope trade business, they haven't got a head for business any longer.

Which in a nutshell is the position of Leto and Wayans with Connelly in support figuring her own habit can be taken care of by following their lead. Of course its disaster all around.

As for Ellyn Burstyn she gained Requiem For A Dream's only Academy Award recognition with a nomination for Best Actress. She's not just clueless about her son, she's caught up in her own chemical dependency. She dreams of her 10 minutes of fame on some daytime quiz show and gets herself nicely hooked on diet pills. Unlike her son, she does have some memories of better days and talks about them with her peers on the benches outside the apartments.

I recognized a lot of the Brighton Beach/Coney Island area of Brooklyn where this was all shot on location. Requiem For A Dream is a sad film about sad people, definitely one to bring you down from any kind of high you might be on.
Work of art my a**.
I can't believe people can call this a masterpiece, it's mediocre at best. It feels less like an actual movie and more like something they would show in schools, minus the nudity. This film could have been better if it actually had a consistent plot, or even the basic elements to a story. It's an anti-drug movie that focuses on one dimensional characters, wow good job.

The characters were very uninspired, except Ellen Burstyn, she was the only one that was remotely sympathetic. I didn't care for any of the other characters. To sum them up, they do bad things and suffer for it. To bad you couldn't get an emotional response out of me, that would have helped. If you want to shock people with drugs, show them a picture of Meth mouth, that would work. But instead we get a film that doesn't even feel like I'am watching a movie.

This film is severely over-rated, it lacks any form of development or imagination. Could have been good if they came up with a better plot and more intriguing characters.
Smoke-and-mirrors. Flashy, overrated drugs movie has little to say
Darren Aronofsky followed up Pi - a super-stylised near-masterpiece - with this highly-regarded drugs picture which uses almost every visual trick imaginable. Were such technical wizardry enhancing the story (as in Citizen Kane), it would be an admirable achievement, but here it seems to have replaced it. With as many meaningless subplots and unpleasant characters as the similarly-over-hyped Heat, Requiem is not the classic that it has been described as. Rather, it is a deeply flawed piece which loses its emotional impact through a relentless barrage of visual tricks. Indeed, "trick" seems an apt word to use, for much of the film's audience appears to have been deceived and led astray by the showy direction and obvious symbolism. Ellen Burstyn is brilliant, but plot and screenplay are markedly sub-standard, and both Leto and Wayans deliver unmemorable turns.

In terms of editing and visual originality, then, Requiem may be judged a success, but in grand terms, simply a mess, despite Burstyn's unforgettable central performance.
First of all, don't watch this film if you are weak at heart. this is one bad trip. And it only gets worse until an unsatisfying ending. What is the point of this story? DON'T DO DRUGS. Jared Leto plays a junkie, Jennifer Connoly plays a junkie. Ellen Burstyn plays a woman who becomes a junkie. Junkie Junkie Junkie. Fast Paced clips does not help either. It is like those girls who comes out of the TV in all those very modern scary movies. Well it's well made and well casted. And if you are a sucker for drug movies, this is the one. Well one of them, not the best not the worst, but it's there. 6 out of 10, sensation is by far the word I would use. Pain is the answer to this movie. Pain to be alive, how much more emo could you get.
One of the most nihilistic things I've ever seen.
This movie was written and directed by people who think human life is worthless. Some good acting and some interesting but wholly derivative camera work save it from total oblivion. But people, please, the social fabric isn't this threadbare anywhere in the country where it is set, and nowhere on earth would you find four characters this stupid in the same place and time. The film makers hammer home a point rather than tell a story, and that point is tiresome, the story unrealistic, and the whole thing an ideological mistake. I'd call it pretentious, but it's too awful. The director's "Pi" was a compelling case study on mental illness. This film is a disappointment.
