    "This movie is a really great one. Imagine if you really could have that medical procedure done. Many people would be so confused! HAHA. If you like Requiem for a Dream, this would be a good movie to watch that is lighter but has that mind-boggling element to it. "

    "Trainspotting is a drama film that is quite old but still really good. It's a very black kind of comedy-drama film with dark humor in it, and it has drug issues involved too so it's very similar to Requiem for a Dream. "

    "Fight Club - this is a movie that I have always enjoyed. It's a very dark movie that I think shows a very dark side of humans and how something is always hidden below the surface. This is really one of my faves of all time, together with Requiem!"

    "This movie is appealing to me since it's based on a true story. Jen Connely is here too so if you liked her in Requiem, this is one to watch. I also like the similarities between movies since this shows what happens when people fall from grace, much like how the characters become true addicts in Requiem for a Dream. "

    "Black Swan is a really cool and dark movie that I liked since it was not all about the glam that surrounds ballet but it shows the dark psychological effect it can have on people. Really amazing movie, and I think it does have a similar tone to Requiem for a Dream too so it's a good listing here. "

    "The Fountain is an Aronofsky film so naturally you can expect dark themes and subplots. This movie is amazing to me and it remains one of my favorites til now. This is probably in my top 10 favorite films, and Requiem for a dream is in my top 5. "

    "Donnie Darko is a twisty weird and wacky film that I have watched like 4 times already and I am not sure I fully understand it yet. It is honestly weird that I'm not sure how to describe it even if I try. It is like requiem for a dream though since it has a similar hopelessly dark feel to it."

    "A Clockwork Orange is not really the same as Requiem for a Dream since they have different stories, but I think they can be considered similar since they are about the mind and they are both good interesting movies."
