I've said it here before...I think Requiem for a Dream is one of the most overrated movies along with Memento.

Requiem for a dream.

How he ends it left me sick to my stomach. You know a movie is good when you have a physical reaction.

I saw Requiem for the first time a few months ago after hearing about it for a decade. It was a little over-hyped and overrated, it was impossible not to be. Ellen Burstyn as Harry's mother completely stole the movie. The story and other characters took a back-seat to her unbelievable performance. She was like a silverback against puppies.

Actually, all four of them were amazing. It just so happened that Ellen put on an extremely brilliant performance.

Not sure about it being overrated - 3/5 people I ask don't even know about it.

I actually thought Requiem was funnier than Trainspotting personally. It's probably the best edited movie ever. However crushing the ending is.

She was good but she was too old to be Harry's mother. She looked like she should have been his grandmother.

Apparently opinions vary.

I love both of these movies, But I prefer Trainspotting. I love the soundtrack. Good acting by a 25 yrs.old Ewan Mcgregor.

You're thinking of Blankman, which is better than these two movies.

trainspotting. lighter tone and more realistic. cant beat the UK

requiem is very tragic but insults my intelligence on how drugs can realistically mess up your life. its never as dramatic as it appears to be.
