Requiem for a Dream

I just saw the movie Requiem For A Dream (imdb).

This is truly the starkest movie I've ever seen. It's depiction of the spiral into drug addiction is brutal, and it's heartwrenching to see every moment of the characters' descents tinged with unachievable hope.

It's beautifully constructed, with an outstanding score and stunning visuals. This movie doesn't leave one's mind.

Ever.
