Selby's novel was adapted into a critically praised motion picture in 2000 directed by Darren Aronofsky, starring Ellen Burstyn, Jennifer Connelly, Marlon Wayans and Jared Leto (Selby has a cameo role as a prison guard). Burstyn was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in 2000 for her role.

The disturbing film depicts different forms of addiction leading to imprisonment in a dream world, which is overtaken and devastated by reality.

The soundtrack, frequently described as "eerie" and "haunting", was composed by Clint Mansell and performed by the Kronos Quartet.

The film was originally tagged with an NC-17 rating by the MPAA due to a haunting montage in the film's finale. Aronofsky appealed the rating, claiming that cutting any portion of the film would dilute, if not outright destroy, its message. The appeal was denied, but Artisan decided to release the film unrated.

Cast

About the Movie

As in his previous film, π, Aronofsky demonstrates his unique style of movie making with ever repeating rapid cut scenes, which remain a constant element throughout the whole film, the depiction of pain (not violence), the graphic insight into the characters' minds and the opposition of initially different situations, which result in the very same effect.

Requiem for a Dream does belong to the drug movie category —Trainspotting being a somewhat typical example— yet Aronofsky's approach to the theme is less bohemian than in the latter one. Nevertheless, the director refrains from being moralistic or even critical. The consequences of legal and illegal drugs are shown as similarly devastating, and similar cinematic devices are even used to portray Mrs. Goldfarb's television viewing regimen.

One criticism of Requiem for a Dream is in its unrealistic portrayal of drug use, especially as it relates to care given to addicts seeking medical attention. Since it is based on a book from the 1970s, it is also criticized for having an outdated perspective on drug use, medicine, and the treatment of mental illness.

Plot

The film tells the stories of mother and son, Sara (Burstyn) and Harry Goldfarb (Leto) and Harry's girlfriend Marion (Connelly) and his friend Tyrone (Wayans).

Sara is an older woman who lives alone in an apartment in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, spending all day in front of her TV set. Her relationship with her son has degraded over the years. This causes her great concern that she is unable to share with others.

When she receives a phone call from a television studio, her life gets a new meaning. She believes to be invited as a guest on a weight loss infomercial. The dream of being popular and sharing her luck with the whole country gets a grip on her existence and conception of reality. To be able to wear her favorite dress on the show, she starts taking weight-loss drugs. Harry later discovers that they contain addictive stimulants (probably amphetamines, or uppers, as Harry calls them), but she dismisses the thought.
