    "I'm a big fan of indie movies, so I checked out Requiem for a Dream on a whim while browsing. It was an extremely interesting story about drug addiction, and not the sort of story you normally find in Hollywood blockbusters. For an indie movie it was well shot with sharp dialogue, and I don't regret my time with it at all."

    "While this movie may not be a success at the box office, I feel that this is one movie that Jennifer Connely would be proud of. Not only did she performed well in this movie, the fact that it premiered at the Cannes meant that the film was excellent. That alone would be enough for an actor as great as Miss Connely, I think."

    "Ellyn Burstyn was completely and utterly heartbreaking in this film, and I was just gutted when she did her monologue about her meaningless life where she only had her television game show spot to look forward to. I swear she was the heart of the whole film! I'm even tearing up a little just remembering it! :("

    "Ellen Burstyn was sublime in this movie. Her acting was so on point that the movie stopped feeling like just a movie to me. I was so invested that I found myself really believing in the plot! I don't know how she did it! Magnificent!"

    "A story of a mother and son addicted to two different drugs. I love how Ellen Burstyn portrayed her role in this movie. She is a very effective actress to think that she is not that young to be an addict but she pulled it off!"

    "I'm not really sure what counts as a hipster movie. I guess Requiem for a Dream could be considered one? Anyway, the movie is great, but very dark. Not exactly something you want to watch when you're in the mood for something light."

    "While I would say this is a great thriller of a movie, it is definitely much more to do with drugs than psychology. I would say that even within this response you can find another, better, psychological thriller in the movie Pi."

    "If psychological thrillers are your thing Requiem for a Dream is a good choice. The movie features several delusional characters spiraling out of control due to drug abuse. I enjoyed it."
