84: “In the End It’s All Nice” – Requiem For A Dream
As if 2020 couldn’t get any more dismal, we sat down to rewatch Darren Aronofsky’s REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, a movie so depressing that many of its viewers refuse to ever watch it again. Released in the year 2000 to positive reviews and horrified audiences, Aronofsky’s film about drug addiction and the depths people will go to get their fix still carries the reputation of being a traumatizing film-watching experience.
Is “Requiem” just as viscerally unnerving twenty years later? Join our discussion as we consider the appeal of disturbing cinema and share why Ellen Burstyn’s performance as Sara Goldfarb is in a category all its own.
