Was time once again to watch this awesome film that was directed by Darren Aronofsky. I must say this is one of those movies that i can watch 100 times over and never get sick of it. Tne story of 4 people who are co dependants of different forms...drugs and eating disorders who all find out that after achieving the great highs their is always the crashing lows. Great cast includes the always great Ellen Burstyn (who if you asked me got totally robbed by Julia Roberts in Erin Brokovich that year in the oscars) Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly, Marlon Wayans. Aronofsky never even recieved a nod for best direction (Which in my opinion is a crime) And this all is backed by an amazing soundtrack by the Kronos Quartet (Another miss at the 73rd Academy Awards).

All these things i have mentioned make this film epic and is yet another reason why Darren Aronofsky remains in my top 10 directors of all time list!

Requiem for a Dream Review comment

Totally agree with your review and score being unrecognized. A regular film that grows better with repeat viewings. The director is underrated.
