Just saw Requiem for a Dream, wtf awful awful awful awful...
I thought it might be good to remind myself how bad drugs are from time to time by watching a downward spiraling drug culture flick. I'm not craving anything right now, but I like movies and figured I'd give myself a nice kick in the ribs, you know, just incase, couldn't hurt, right?
I think I picked the wrong movie. Requiem for a Dream is a pointless and depressing pile of crap. The movie starts out depressing, just barely peaks with a lifeless lie of a scene, and then continues on down into a muddle depressing and pointless landslide of crap.
The only character in the film I had empathy for in the end was the old mother who gets the least deserved deal out of everyone in the film. You really don't get to feel much for the other characters because you don't have much respect for them to begin with. The mother however becomes a victim of poor medical care and hospital treatment all because she wants to loose weight. I'm not sure if the director was trying to compare her to the other characters and say that her would be food addiction was just as bad, because it wasn't. She unintentionally got screwed.
Any directorial ingeniuity immediately takes a back seat to the raw depressing scenes that run throughout the film. In the end, well basically from the beginning of the film we learn that drugs ar bad and by the end we're sick of watching and WILLSOMEBODYSAYSOMETHINGFUCKINGPOSITIVEMYHEADFUCKINGHURTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
