yeah it is one of the most depressing movies but it is still amazing, it's kinda like SLC PUNK in a way, they are in there worlds and they don't realize they are losing. I prefered requiem for a dream. It is such a great movie

There are better drug epics IMO.

Fear and Loathing and Trainspotting come to mind.

I love the music for it, really moving.
PM me for details on Scourge's forum!

That movie was so bad, it was the kind that you walk out on. Am I alone on this?

This movie isn't about drugs, but I felt it was filmed in the same manner.

Greatest love story ever.

You need to watch Threads if you want the most depressing film ever made:

http://imdb.com/title/tt0090163/



Documentary style account of a nuclear holocaust and it's affect on the working class city of Sheffield, England; and the eventual long run affects of nuclear war on civilization.

It is the mid-1980's, during the Cold War. Ruth Beckett & Jimmy Kemp, residents of the town of Sheffield, England, are planning for their upcoming marriage and birth of their first child. Sheffield is home to a major R.A.F. base and has a major industrial base of steel, energy & chemical production. But the Soviet Union marches troops into Iran, in a plan to convert it to a Soviet satellite state. The United States, Great Britain, and other members of NATO and the U.N. angrily condemn the Soviet aggression and military activity in England starts to mount, especially at the nearby R.A.F. base. The families of Ruth & Jimmy go about their daily business, paying little attention to what is going on in Iran. One spring day, without warning, the Soviet Union attacks England with ICBMs - two of which hit Sheffield, annihilating most of the city and its inhabitants. But what is even more horrifying is the aftermath that follows - a world without public order, clean food, water, electricity, or the ability to produce any of them. Ruth struggles for more than 10 years just to stay alive in this horrible, barren, radioactive homeland...

I've only seen a few scenes from this film, but I must admit that some of the directing was incredible. I'd like to actually sit down and watch it all the way through.

I missed the start, but I thought it was a good film. I really liked the ending where it kept changing between everyone, showing what becomes of them, and they all turn over to face your left. Good stuff.

Fear and Loathing is such a completely and utterly different type of drug film to Requiem, I can't even begin to understand your logic.

requiem for a dream is one of the most messed up, yet thought provoking movie I've ever seen... the depravity the characters fall into is unreal..... the ending made me feel really vulnerable, no other movie has done that to me... plus, his puncture hole in his arm is just disgusting. As is the double ended dildo scene.

I own it. It's incredibly depressing. Thank you to whoever said it was about more than just drugs. Anyone who thinks it's just about drugs really missed the point.

Anyways, if you liked Requiem for a Dream, you might like Pi as well. It's the same director, Daron Aranofsky. Requiem for a Dream was supposed to be his masterpiece, but as everyone said, it's pretty depressing. Pi is a trippy sort of thriller that definitely won't depress you. Personally I liked it better, just because I don't like to be depressed.

The end made me feel like no movie had ever made me feel before. It's indescribeable. Truly amazing.

BTW, Kronos Quartet did the music, which is great. It really added to the movie.

That movie is incredible. I was very impressed with Marlon Wayans' acting. It remains the only movie I have ever seen that really moved me.

Summer Overture and Lux Aeterna are my favorites.

and I enjoy the double-dildo ass to ass scene at the end.
