The title is an American colloquial expression that refers informally (and sometimes derogatorily) to Protestant sects whose worship meetings often include sessions of frenzied excitement (despite the Christian connotation of the term, this movie is about Jews). In addition to that connection, the title also is a reference to the other subject matter of the film, the illegal trafficking of the drug MDMA or "Ecstasy" ("rolling" is a slang term used to describe being high on Ecstasy).

really loved & enjoyed this movie. It was engaging from the beginning. It used dark colors which helped set the mood for the cold Brooklyn winter. It's a human story between temptation & wanting to do the right thing. The main character is torn between tradition& morality. Very touching, & extremely well acted by all. If you liked the Social Network, you will also enjoy this movie; it has the same fast paced, engaging speed; you really want to know what is going to happen next. Jesse Eisenberg's acting really portrays his moral dilemma with wanting to be an observant Hasidic Jew, but being irresistibly tempted by the money of drug dealing.
