Dark, disturbing, depressing and violent movie about drugs and it's consequences both physically & mentally.
Requiem for a Dream is a movie that intensely depicts the environment, behaviors, and the depressing lives of a couple severe drug addicts, in which they slowly start to plunge into their downfall throughout the movie. The main concern about this movie is the pervasive and graphic drug use scenes where the main characters inject/shoot up heroin, cocaine, and one older woman abuses weight loss pills which causes her to hallucinate and experience terrifying visions. Violence is infrequent, but it's mostly very realistic, disturbing and hard to watch. Language is strong (uses of the f-word, motherf**ker, anatomical and religious profanities); and the sex in the movie is graphic, strong and there's scenes where it reveals full-frontal nudity (breasts, buttocks, pubic region, and genitalia); especially the scene where one of the characters shares a double sided sex toy with another woman and they're forced to have sex with each other (which is brought on at a strip club), and is very disturbing to watch. Very mature teenagers MIGHT can watch this, maybesome parental supervision in case they won't get influenced by this.
