In my top 5 favorite movies...
5 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this movie. I hopelessly found myself attached to the emotions of the characters. The love he had for his brother, the hope that he could find love with this beautiful stranger, the despair of being lost in a dead-end job, the continuous struggle to escape his reality through his rash actions and desperation. If you have even been low like he was, you'd relate to everything in this movie. There's a chance you'll be bored watching it, but the actors and directors made me feel every emotion to the fullest in this film while making me think during and afterwards. I recommend it to anyone who like Darren Aronofsky films.
