Warning: Will Disturb the Fuck Out of You

Postby MHaelG on Thu Aug 09, 2001 2:01 am

I just finished watching Requiem For a Dream. The absolute BEST movie I've seen in a very long time. It's all about addiction, whether to drugs, diet pills, television, or food. It is by far the most disturbing movie I've ever seen and it truly blew my mind more than Goodfellas or Fight Club ever had a chance of doing. The coolest, most disturbing fucking movie I've ever seen. Anyone who hasn't seen it (which I'm sure is all of you) needs to go rent it from your local Hollywood Video and watch it. And then when you're done, try to think of what the un-rated version is like...

I saw it 4 times in the theaters (including a month prior to release at a festival), and bought the unrated DVD the first day it was availble. Yes, I did love that movie (considering how gut-wrenching it is, I must be some sort of cinematic masochist).<P>b: For the love of all that is good and pure, if there is an independant video store in your area, rent the Directors Cut (the unrated version). blockbuster and hollywood refused to carry it, but the impact of the climactic sequence is <i>so</i> much more powerful in the complete version.<P>OK, that is all, except that I am still <a href="http://angrypeople.keenspace.com/d/20010611.html">bitter</a> about Ellen Burstyn not getting the Oscar for that performance. I mean come on, they gave it to Julia Roberts for crying out loud. *grumbles incoherently*<P>------------------

I still dislike movies. They're too long. Give me a good song anyday. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>Actually, I went to see Shrek at the cinema with my friends recently. It was actually much better than I expected. But still not enough to convince me that movies are good.<P>------------------

I think In the Wood was unintentionally the funniest movie ever. Aside from all those old Japanese monster movies, that is, though I'm sure some of their movie secrets were borrowed for its making.
