Requiem is an older film, released in 2000, but is more than worth a review. It is one of the most powerful and life changing films ever made. But be warned, for it is not for the faint of heart due to its graphic nature. The emotions this movie causes are scary, sad, and revealing. It is a movie that, after watching, you will want people you care about to see, especially those that are our age. The systematic filming and the emotional soundtrack correlate perfectly with the habitual nature of addiction and make the underlying message of Requiem for a Dream scarily evident. When watching this movie, approach it with an open mind and be prepared to think long and hard. It is a beautiful film but can leave a devastating impact.
