Requiem for a Dream (2000)
One of the most dangerous movies indeed
This movie was considerer by Premiere as one of the 25 most dangerous movies, and i really feel like it is. Darren Aronofsky gives us a amazing movie about drugs, how it changes our lives, by showing how time can go faster or slower with the more than 2000 cuts that make us always be on the edge. It also reveals the dark side of the human condition who prefers a drug induced utopia than to do something meaningful to change their lives. It shows dramatically the pain of the characters and their endless search for something that at the end they always knew they wouldn't be able to achieve. The futility of current society is showed on the shallow goals of the characters who prefer a tragic ending than to choose different things for their lives.
Although all the performances are very good, there's no shadow of a doubt that Ellen Burstyn gives a performance of a life as Sara Goldfarb, we feel her pain, we understand her needs, we feel her desire...Ellen makes totally drawn to a character who gets what she wants and no one deserves. And i believe everyone's heart gets broken when we see when she finally got in the red dress and that's the only thing that she now has in her live, a red dress who fits
A great movie that i highly recommend
