Requiem for a Dream

Wednesday, 13 March, Year 5 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

Boy what a wrenching punch to the gut this film is.i The mechanicist approach to montage - uppers, downers, skag, grass, coffee, coke, all the same in the end - and the skilful splicing of old Jewish female society with the dazed & desperate inner city / gangland youth delivers a message. Loudly. Distinctly. Enunciatedly. With gritted teeth.

What's the message ? Maybe that you shouldn't ever get old. That you shouldn't ever fall in love. That you shouldn't ever answer the phone, or go to Florida, or make friends or influence people. Maybe it's that you shouldn't dye your hair, or watch television, or sit in the sun. Maybe it's that you should never have been alive in the first place.

I don't know what the message is, but it's fucking scary, I'll tell you that.


Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum! Cum!
