Requiem for a Dream [Unrated] [Director's Cut] [DVD] 
Darren Aronofsky's mad drug fueled nightmare journeys the audience through the lives of 4 addicts of various substances. It is split into seasons starting with Summer, then Fall, Winter, and ends in Spring. I will be completely honest and say that it does have its faults. It can lack the subtlety of more mature films in its dialogue and appearance. However, this film is a collection of sequenced art scenes that are gorgeous in how haunting they become. In the end, you may be traumatized like so many that have viewed this film, but Requiem for a Dream will leave you thinking and disturbed. I can guarantee that much.
Jared Leto is a harrowing heroin addict. One of his best acting performances other than Dallas Buyer's Club. He oozes desperation for a fix exponentially throughout the film's duration. JenniferConnelly is so sympathetic, you just feel worse and worse for her character for what she does for love, acceptance, and drugs. Marlon Wayans is more about making his place in the world with money and heroin dealing. You see his sad past lead to a broken future. Ellen Burstyn is perhaps the most underrated performance in Requiem for a Dream. Her addiction seems to be sugar, then you realize its television. Her obsession with watching leads her to ruination.
In short, Aronofsky demonizes substance abuse, but takes care in showing the downward spiral of addiction is the most exaggerated, but poignant way he knows. The cinematography will dazzle and terrify you. Clint Mansell's legendary and now infamous score will haunt you for the rest of your days. Darren Aronofsky's mad masterpiece is a demonstration of film making with innovative edits, cuts, synchronization, musical swells, and deranged sequencing. Nearly every scene is shot differently. It's a very interesting movie to look at in that I doubt you will be bored.
This movie is simply brilliant. It’s been 19 years since it was released, and there has yet to be a movie that depicts addiction the way this movie does! A must see! Finally a movie that shows addiction from the perspective of the addicts themselves, not the dealers. It’s heartbreaking and magnificent.
