Requiem for a Dream

This has to be one of the saddest fuckin unbelievably amazing artistic film I've seen till date. I mean what more can you think of a film which is totally zero on hope and high on dope . Having said that I have to agree that this is a brilliant film with some intense soundtrack, crisp editing and arresting cinematography. Its montage style execution with split screen techniques and extremely short shots makes this a very special one.

Thanks to god I've never been in the shoes of the 4 characters of the film, and I don't know if there can be any other movie which can depict the slow self destruction of people due to Addiction so well and so close to reality than Requiem for a dream.

For those who think ah this is another drug movie, get this straight. Its so not a drug movie. What it shows is four people who have a fantasy or a dream, and then their addictions not only get in the way, but completely destroy them. So in short its a movie which hits you hard, freaks you out, moves you and leaves you thinking in the end. Highly Recommended !!
