Have I have a few movies that I especially roads. And despite what they me a standard every time to review their I was extremely hard, so all these films are real sentimental dramas. "Requiem for a dream" as one such films.

Of course, many people seeing this film once, might think that the Director is strongly trying to convey to the viewer all the heaviness of life of drug addicts or people are not socially secured living in poverty. But only one man who just thought about the meaning of life, about their place in it, understand about than this movie.

4 main characters and 4 dreams of a new happy life, but, to or one of them to accomplish its goal. Of course, the way to achieve the dreams that they chose was for all fatal, and not many would have done so. Was if the other choice? On my opinion — no. More precisely, the choice is always there, but not always true, good, positive, legitimate. He has just sometimes, to move on, go to your dream has to make that choice, no matter how it is not was.

I can say? Great cast, great acting, editing and directing on the highest level and the tune, which literally permeated the entire film. It is simply impossible to forget the last minutes of the film, when life for the characters is almost over, harder and harder you hear this music. And how many times I watched this movie so many times and cried in the end of the film. Darren Aronofsky is a master at the parts to bring one precisely matched the melody of the viewer to "condition".

Finally I want to say: we do not choose our destiny and that often the us is not our fault, and the force of circumstances. We have to go and try to avoid "sharp corners", to become the heroes of these stories, and dreams may remain dreams. Probably, you just need to live and enjoy life and that have, indeed, in pursuit with happiness you can lose a lot, even yourself.

P. S. the Film does not about drugs and drug addicts! The film is about the choices that each person makes and about what that choice may lead!

A movie that need not look and feel.

This film is in one time made a revolution in cinema, and Darren Aronofsky instantly became a cult Director. And is more than fair as "Requiem.." and in truth a cult film.

The plot in this film is conceived on so that the mosquito nose not podtochit, it should also be noted the incredible the beauty of its soundtrack. The acting is brilliant. I was particularly struck by Ellen Burstyn, well and Marlon Wayans good. And the camera work in the film deserves only good reviews.

Well in the end it is necessary to say that after I sat in stuck not could think of, but do then me her cheeks began to shed tears, so struck me this movie.

After I woke up, I understand the characters and come to the conclusion... after all, they just wanted!

Unfortunately, our dreams not always come true. And the characters of "Requiem for a dream" just to sing a Requiem mass on about than dreamed of.

Difficult film. Perhaps this would be the characterization given the given picture. The viewer is immediately immersed in the atmosphere abnormalities, drug addicts, old ladies, losing weight women. Everything here breathes madness and insanity.

On the other hand, interesting to see how an hour and a half destroyed people's lives, collapsing all that they have become the dust of dreams that were set in summer, and by "winter" them as if not.

Someone so that action can seem tedious and boring. And partly will be right. Because the entire film is one dose, the other — dreaming perfect body to light up in the television program. This is a zombie people, they are already do not live, they exist a parasite.

I would recommend this movie already established personalities that have reached something that is not throw cases in the middle, so in this picture of all of exactly on the contrary.
