    Who has seen this movie? This is by far my favorite movie of all time, its just fucking insane. I hear they are starting to show it in high schools around here now. For those who dont know, its about drug use and the american dream, its a fucked up flick and its realistic. Check it if you havent yet.

    For those who have, whut did you think?

    I've started a theard about how terrible this movie is.

    It's clever with it's quick cutting that's it, it tricks people into liking it.

    It's one thing for a movie to be depressing but this went over the edge for the sake of shock value. Jared Letto was a heroin addict, you can't take a character any lower without killing them. They cut off his arm for shock value and that's just stupid.

    The only good in the movie was the parts with the mother.

    I liked Requim for a Dream Although it didnt really have much of a shock value in my case.. id much rather watch Train Spotting. How ever if were going to talk about drug flicks lets cut the crap. Its all about Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

    i couldn't stand that fucking movie. sweet, another shock film for everyone to think "oh, that's what it's like on the streets". the acting and editing and cinematography was done pretty well, but honestly i think that movie belonged in the toilet.

    Sorry re-posting this, I havent been here that long to know if this was posted before. I know it is a bit extreme with the portrayal of "the streets" , but I thought the cinematography was insane.

    that is the best part of the movie. And the mom parts. Not a bomb oscar winner, though. Plus, i hear it made people sad. Not me. That ending was making me crack up..."ASS TO ASS!"

    I have yet to see the director's cut, from what I understand they all kill themselves, that would be super.
