This is a devastating movie. I've never felt more uncomfortable or captivated during any film. It's powerful, disturbing, and Aronofsky's masterful hand makes it all come together.


Remains Aronofsky's best work to date.

BThis was very painful to watch, even the "funny" scenes were very dark. The cinematography is spectacular, and as usual Aronofsky squeezes everything out of his actors - memorable and extreme performances. Excellent film, but only "B" from me because it's just too depressing, saw this once on the big screen and once at home and don't plan to watch it again. Except maybe a few selected scenes because of the sheer brilliance of the photography!My favourite from Aronofsky would be "The Wrestler", nearly tied with "Black Swan".

I tried to love this movie, and while there were brilliant, brilliant moments, there was just too much scatter throughout, that I can't give this more than a B-. I need to watch it in full again, but for now it's just ok.

And so it goes, and so it goes. And the book says, "We may be through with the past, but the past ain't through with us."

One of the best films of the last decade. Such a powerful, depressing, horrific film. The acting, [color=rgb(40,40,40);font-family:helvetica, arial, sans-serif;]cinematography, and direction are brilliant. A must see film![/color]

[color=rgb(40,40,40);font-family:helvetica, arial, sans-serif;]10/10[/color]

For the normal people: This trailer had some good elements but I think the first was better. If that was an A+ this is more a B+

For those that don't accept any Marvel criticism: OH MY FUCKING GOD DID YOU SEE THAT?!!?!! I'M GOING TO MASTERBATE TO THAT EVERY CHANCE I GET. DIDN'T LIKE THE TRAILER? FUCK YOU HATERS!!!!!!! DAR on January 12, 2015

Wanna win the War on Drugs? Make this required viewing in every high school. A sickening yet absolutely captivating portrayal of four normal people destroying their lives through substance abuse. Everyone involved with this film appears to be on the same page with Aronofsky's surreal and horrifying vision.


A+, but I have no desire to ever watch it again.

Still Aronofsky's best movie.
