how to melt your brain in the bestp ossible way!,
This review is from: Requiem for a Dream [DVD]  (DVD)oh my word i heard about this from a friend of mine and he can get a little over the top whilst talking about films so when he said it was one of if not the best film ever i merely dimissed it but as we normally do on a friday night we got the drinks in and sat down to watch a film this time it was R4aD
oh my word! from start to finish and amazing film good acting, truely amazing directing id say second to none! excellent story line based around hopes and dreams and then the crushing of the afore mentioned things due to a horrific drug addiction great sub plots the use of a comman concern of wieght lost and the corupt statistic based health service is a more extreme version of something i think is very close to home for a large part of the world.
as the viewer you get to watch helplessly as There lives go from seemingly good to a whole new type of nightmare...bewarned......
THIS IS NOT HUMAN TRAFFIC NOR TRAINSPOTTING THIS IS NOT A LIGHT FILM THIS IS HARD HITTING STUFF
