    For his follow-up to his darkly brilliant debut, PI, director Darren Aronofsky chose to adapt a tough and meaty piece of work: Hubert Selby's 1968 novel Requiem for a Dream, a dark spiral into the abyss of barren fantasies doomed to extinction. However, in Aronofsky's frenetic, visionary, unique, and disturbing style lies the perfect setting for this story of four people whose intertwined lives are filled with eternally hopeful despair. This is a different sort of horror film. Harry Goldfarb (Jared Leto) and Marion Silver (Jennifer Connelly) are lovers in Brooklyn with dreams of setting up a small business and spending the rest of their lives in love--their version of the American dream. The two are also desperate heroin addicts, a compulsion that darkens their lives and leads Harry to repeatedly pawn his mother's television. His mother, Sara Goldfarb (Ellen Burstyn), is addicted to television, which is why she keeps replacing the stolen set. One day she receives a call from her favorite show, the surreal TAPPY TIBBONS SHOW, and learns that she has been selected to appear on an upcoming broadcast. When she can't fit into her best red dress, her doctor prescribes diet pills (uppers), to which she swiftly and painfully becomes addicted. Harry's cohort, an intelligent hustler named Tyrone (Marlon Wayans), completes the foursome. With its unflinching dissection of addiction, Requiem for a Dream is a psychologically disturbing, visually captivating depiction of lost hope. The last half hour of the film is among the most harrowing of any film ever made.moreless

    Requiem for a Dream is a feature film directed by Darren Aronofsky that is based on a 1978 novel by Hubert Selby Jr. The film takes place in South Brooklyn, and follows the lives of Harry Goldfarb (Jared Leto), his mother Sara (Ellyn Burstyn), his best friend Tyrone (Marlon Wayans) and his girlfriend Marion (Jennifer Connelly). Set to the ominous soundtrack by Clint Mansell and the Kronos Quartet, the plot revolves around the theme of the characters' addictions. While Sara Goldfarb spends her lonely days in Brighton Beach dreaming about appearing on a television game show, Harry, Tyrone and Marion scheme up ways to get rich quick selling heroin. The film begins in Summer, when the characters' dreams seem attainable: Harry wants to open a shop for Marion's fashion designs, Tyrone wants to make his mother proud by getting off the streets, and Sara wants to slim down enough to fit into her red dress to wear on television. But as the seasons progress, the dreams of the characters start to slip through the cracks as their addictions spiral out of control. Though the film is graphic and utterly grim, Aronofsky received much praise for his film depicting the shattered lives of four characters striving for an unattainable American dream.moreless
