Requiem for a dream is a drama directed by Darren Aronovsky, released in 2000. It is based on the novel of Hubert Selby in 1978. The purpose of this work is above all, to alert against the addiction of drug. This film talk about four people; Harry Goldfarb, his mother Sara Goldfarb, his best friend Tyron, and his girlfriend Marianne. All of them dream of a better life. They will be locked up in the world that they will create, to escape from reality. And for that Harry, Tyron and Marianne will chose drugs, and, also, they will be involved in drug trafficking. Sara is obessed by television and she wants to participate to her favorite show and also wear her red dress. Finally, she will decide to go on a diet, but unfortunately she will become addicted to her pills.
During the movie, we follow the four characters into their madness and destruction. I found it so deep and dark, i remember that i felt so sad and desperate. This movie is incredible, the music represent exactly the atmosphere and the state of mind of the characters. And if you watch the movie until the end, i assure you that the urge to touch the drugs leaves you immediately. However i don’t suggest you to watch it when you feel already bad.
