Requiem For A Dream

5

Darren Aronofsky's bruising second film tracks the plummeting lives of four Coney Island addicts (Ellen Burstyn, Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly and Marlon Wayans). It's the last half hour that really scars, but the Pi director confirms himself as an arch-stylist throughout, using subjective camera angles, hip-hop montages and grindingly repetitive close-ups to drive home the mundanity of addiction.
