The story of drugs and love is one we never seem to get tired of. Or do we? This was far from being a bad film (it's hard for a film to be bad when Heath Ledger is in it because he's brilliant in everything he does). However, it's a story we all know so it was kind of predictable. It's redeeming quality is the fact that its so emotional. Even though you may see where it's heading, it's still hard to not care about these people. You are really rooting for these characters to get off the smack and get their lives together. After watching it you almost regret it. Again, not because its a bad movie, but as in life, who wants to watch two people destroy themselves?

A very good look at drug addiction and love. While the premise is similar to "Requiem For A Dream" (though not as good) it develops deeper characters and a longer relationship with drugs. It is a sad movie and its only down fall is the end.

not too tasty

Iím sorry folks, but Iím just sick to death of this genre of film. Everything has already been done at least twice, so until someone finds a new slant to the tale just stop. Slacker druggies (here Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish) spend their time getting high and ruining their lives. Joy. Why should I care about two self-absorbed egomaniacs on smack? Any reason please? The acting is fine but thereís really no reason for this film except to show some beautiful people behaving monstrously to themselves and each other. Geoffrey Rush slums here in a supporting role as mentor, supplier, and enabler of the pair. Itís no Requiem for a Dream (itís not even Requiem for Murder), in fact its a pretty boring nightmare full of people Iíd rather see dead in a ditch than on screen putting themsel...
