Requiem for a Dream

Requiem for a Dream ★★★★½

This movie is absolutely incredible and I’m actually tempted to give it 5 stars.  The acting all around is phenomenal, the score is one of the most beautiful soundtracks I’ve genuinely ever heard, and the themes of addiction are almost perfectly conveyed.  My only possible complaint may be the cinematography which isn’t anything to write home about, but other than that, this movie completely blew me away.  I just need to sit down and think after watching this, and I’ll definitely have a repeat viewing soon (side note: this kind of reminds me of Mulholland Drive for some reason).
