Requiem for a Dream

G-Voice Recommendation: 
This is a film by Darren Aronofsky who directed the critically acclaimed Black Swan (2000). If you consider Trainspotting as a brilliant film on drugs, addiction and the critique on modernity, Requiem for a Dream would be ever more appealing to your taste. Although the film is full of images of using drugs, and considered banned for such reason, the atmosphere created in Dream is a sound warning rather than an appraisal of any kind. 
One of the films technique is using rapid cuts to parallel the emotion drug addicts are going through. With a sad, graceful background score paired with intense scenes of drug abuse, the story focuses 4 young people from sobriety to intoxication, and their physical/spiritual road of deterioration. You may say that one is emotionally drained to the extreme after watching the film, overwhelmed a feeling of being “haunted” by the visual experience and left wanting for more.
