Requiem for a Dream

Continuing in my string of drug related movies, we recently watched Requiem for a Dream. After recently watching Sid and Nancy, I wasn't sure I wanted to see another drug movie. This one, however, benefited from the comparison.

By following the stories of four people each of whom has their life spiral out of control as a result of drug use, the movie manages to show broad themes that touch all of the drug users while still showing each as having a unique experience. The movie is a downer though. It makes it look like the downward spiral is almost inevitable.

On my scale of 1-100, I rate it an 85.
