Anyway: I took the plunge, and decided to watch the unrated version of Requiem for a Dream on IFC.
Wow. I knew it was going to be depressing, but that movie was just plain emotionally draining.. but it was absolutely incredible. I'd rank it up with some of the best films I have ever seen, on the condition that I never have to watch it again. I mean, those last fifteen minutes were crushing. The shocks.. UGH
hahahhahaa OMG I just watched this movie for the first time ever two nights ago! I know what you mean!!
It definitely was a very unnerving movie. I couldn't sleep for hours after watching it. I think it's one of the scariest movies I've ever seen, because unlike most horror movies, this s**t is real
. And it's really scary to think how quickly drugs can spiral downward into such a hopeless vortex of addiction. I've known quite a few people who were drug addicts, and the thing that always gets me the most is how quickly and unexpectedly taking a few drugs turns into a complete, hopeless addiction.
I think the movie captured that aspect of addiction really well. Thinking especially for the girl, Marion... how quickly things progressed for her from sleeping with a guy she's obviously been with before to get drug money, to basically selling herself sexually to a complete stranger. Very scary.
Glad to hear someone else saw it recently that could discuss it! This movie is definitely one I won't soon forget!
