I just saw this movie and i know it came out about 5 years ago....hell it gave me the creeps.....and the end was melancholic ..I did, however like it...the plot, the acting, and the music...just about everythin. ..This movie was powerful, disturbing and quite realistic. How these four people try to pursue their "dreams" but it turns out to be a road to hell and the destructive influence of drugs. I thought it was grand....

People praise the hel out of this movie way too often, but it's still good. It's one of the more unsettling movies I've ever seen. The ending is just devastating.

It does deserve it, but it just seems like more of a trend than anything (ala donnie darko). I love this movie.

How can anyone say Gummo was a better film than this? It defies logic, nothing even happens in Gummo, it's such a pointless and dull movie.

real life doesn't always follow a story arc.

I used to really like this movie, now I just think it's alright. Aronofsky REALLY overdoes things a lot, especially in Pi. This movie had good acting but a poor script. After knowing plenty of drug-addicts way worse than the ones in this movie (I live in Delaware County, afterall), this movie is really just an artsy afterschool special saying "Don't do drugs."

That ending would never happen, unless the two guys already had warrants out for their arrest, which was never mentioned. They obviously had no junk on them since they were driving a thousand fucking miles to get it. I'm sure they weren't dumb enough to bring needles into a hospital (what would be the point, anyway?), and since he was going through withdrawal he wouldn't have been currently under the influence. Therefore, no arrest. At the very most Leto's character would have been checked into rehab.

Also, speed doesn't make you hallucinate.

Anyway, decent flick, but had a lot more potential with the talent involved. Everything Harmony Korine has done is better.

Okay okay, you guys are right. Gummo was an excellent movie.

And apparently movies that have no plotline whatsoever follow real life, thus making it a good film. There's nothing redeeming about that movie. Just irritating characters and dirty settings in a hicktown.

I've never seen Gummo, I'll have to check that out. Requiem for a Dream was obviously a great movie in my opinion, because of the psychological thrill behind it, and the obvious truth in drug addiction.

What was the point then? and why was the point of this movie filmed in such a boring, uninteresting, and annoying manner?

Sorry I'm being such a dick, but I just thought that movie sucked, and is extremely overrated.

I was fine until everything completely deteriorated. The whole time I was thinking that it was a good movie until then.
