I just finished this movie and I now feel like a completely different person. This has got to be one of the most intense films I have ever seen. Anyone else seen it? Am I the only one who thinks it was almost too much to handle?

Yes you do! It was on my list for years.



Ever seen "Blue Velvet"?

No indeed. What's that one about?

I'm not entirely sure, actually. There's a general story arc, sure, but David Lynch was never one for conventionality. Bottom line, if you liked this one, you might like Blue Velvet.

Yes.

Oh, and Requiem for a Dream is a really good comedy. Especially when Jared Leto gets his shit wrecked.

I didn't see Requiem for a Dream, but I heard it was amazing. I'll watch it sometime.

I like the idea of Jared Leto feeling pain.

It's overrated. Jared Leto's mom goes shit crazy on pills, Leto's arm gets amputated, a Wayans ends up in jail, and Leto's girlfriend sucks black dick for drugs.

There, I just saved you two hours.

What's even funnier is that high-school kids take film classes just to ask their teacher about this film only to find out that all the super kewl camera tricks were just for show and add little significance towards mis-en-scene, theme, or joseph campbell's hero arc.

those camera tricks worked for me.

I hate it when people try to figure out some "deeper meaning" behind a way of filming, or a simple concept that's only supposed to drag you into the film more. in the case of Requiem for a Dream the way of filming is supposed to suck you in, nothing more, nothing less, & it did that just fucking fine for me. Requiem for a Dream had no messages between the lines, it had no secrets revealed, it was just about a bunch of people, related to each other in one way or another, going to complete shit. it was a complete utter fucking nightmare.

I hate the way I can get stuck in a film, or not get stuck in a film completely. it's either one of the two, but it's always to extremes & never for once just moderately.

my opinion right after seeing the movie (mind you, I was drunk):

the word "overrated" is overrated. if you like it, you like it. if you love it, you fucking love it. it's not about overrating a movie, it's an opinion. if people like it, because it's generally liked & they're supposed & expected to like it to belong to a certain group & to match the masses, fine, then it's overrated.


Forgettable, and kinda dull from the little I do remember. Good music though.

very good music. added so much to every single effect. without the music I'm certain the movie would've bored me to hell & back. the details in filming (close up of the eyes, the pupils, fast forward, slowed down..) & the music entirely made this movie mention-worthy for me & worth my time. without these aspects, it would've just been individuals going to shit, without a single emotion gripping me.

I downloaded most of the music (whoever bought it is out of his freakin' mind, because it's not exactly the kind of music you listen to to relax, while hanging out with some friends, playing in the background, or whatever) & when I listened to it, even days later, the whole feeling I had during the movie creeped on me again. like nails scratching a blackboard. fucking horrible.

edit; apparently I have GOT to see Blue Velvet? will do. *notes*

I agree with you, Joy. The music may have been what really did it for me. Jeez, even right now I think back on certain parts of the movie and it gives me butterflies in my stomach. So disturbing. I'm definately dowloading the music now!

I have to say, if you have any empathy in you whatsoever, then requiem for a dream will have an effect on you. I love shock movies and am an avid chuck palahniuk fan (author fight club etc), so i watched it expecting it not to phase me, but i have to say that at least the last 45 minutes to an hour of that movie literally attacked my nervous system, it was exhausting in a way watching it.

Absolutely amazing movie, and leave jared leto alone, hes a good actor and his band "30 seconds to mars" have two fantastic albums.

P.S Darren Aranofsky's new movie is coming out soon (in the uk at least), "the fountain", looks excellent.

Hey, did ya ever hear the one where an offspring fan logs into an offspring forum and tells another offspring fan that he has shit taste in everything? That one always cracks me up.

The mistake you're making is the assumption that I'm an Offspring fan. Thanks for further elaborating upon your wretched opinions though.

SeanAshmore
02-09-2007, 05:11 PM
Yes but surely it's an understandable assumption. I mean here we are, on an offspring forum, created no doubt to promote the band. If you don't want to look like an offspring fan, don't sign up for an offspring forum. If you don't want other men to look at your 'package', stop wearing tight leotards, crazy idea, I know.

Failure alert.

We've had this discussion many times before. And sorry, us non-offspring fans always win it. Good try, though.

Thank god there is someone intelligent on this board. The impression is created, it may not seem 100% logical or rational, but we are all human, well that could be argued.
