Marion’s allowance from her father is controlled by a therapist, whom she fucks when desperate for cash. Harry meanwhile has grand plans of being a successful seller with buddy Tyrone, whose connections seem promising.

You know, I’ve gotta say, I find the background music in this move extremely haunting. Also, if you’ve ever wondered where Boz Skag got his name… lol

ADMIN: Thanks again for loading this one. I also learned a thing or two about “Philosophy of the Knife” and “Laboratory of the Devil”…. like they’re one in the same.

Yup yup yup. I’m glad to hear someone is as scarred as I am from the music. This movie is just so excellent and the music just kills you over and over again. I remember the first time I watched this, my mind couldn’t escape it. 5/5 stars for me.

This movie stuck with me longer and hit harder than any movie I’ve seen. The score is terrifying as has already been said, and the bad outcomes are very realistic.

This will not make me popular, but I think this movie is overrated. Of course, it is well-made, the soundtrack by Clint Mansell is wonderful, and Ellen Burstyn’s acting is just incredible. But, in the end, it is just a somewhat mediocre tearjerker: a film that shows in a trivial way how drug addiction may ruin lives. The sad thing in this movie, of course, is the poor old lady who merely wanted something that would make losing weight a little easier for her, and became addicted because of an ‘unethical’ doctor. This seems to me, but I really do not know, a problem typical to the US, associated with that country’s health care system. But, I do not feel sorry for the two young boys. They knew perfectly well what they were getting into. The girl is a somewhat different matter: it is sad, and disgusting, that there are men out there who feel pleasure in sexually harassing women. (To clarify my reaction further: long ago, when I was a student, we shared an apartment building with a drugs dealer. On a daily basis, I saw kids of my age visit this dealer, many of them like zombies, empty eyes and with no voice left. Since that time, marihuana was enough for me. And I also know very well that it is easy to become addicted, I have had to fight alcohol addiction all my life, and never won. But coming back to the movie: all of us have been warned, over and over again, about various forms of drug addiction, so do not become too sentimental about a movie like this.)

Actually.. I would argue that young folks don’t know perfectly well what they are getting into… (More like kinda maybe know what they are getting into… kinda maybe) They’ve heard things here and there.. heard it can be dangerous.. heard addiction can happen.. but really.. it’s far from knowing PERFECTLY well.

Thanks, antinatalpist, doing well today; most of the days actually, but the demon is always looking for me. You know, I started smoking and drinking at a young age, and in those days there was not much attention to the consequences. But nowadays, with the internet and all the social media? I find it very hard to believe that young people do not know what might await them if they get into hard drugs. But, do not get me wrong, if it gets out of hand I feel sorry for them, and hey should be helped, of course! All this said, I cannot help it viewing the movie as not more than a well-made tearjerker, a kind of hard drugs education vehicle.

You realize that the movie is from 2000? Where was the drugs other than on streets? No where. You couldnt see an ad with rehab centers and things about drugs, it was taboo. You talk like it’s 2020 or something… Think about it

Good point. That’s around the time I got hooked on Oxycontin, and I can attest to the fact that it was close to impossible to find. You had to know someone who was dying of cancer. I had no fucking idea what I was getting myself into; I just knew it was a better, stronger high than Percocet or morphine. Then it ruined my life. 16 yrs clean now, and thank the devil I got out before fentanyl hit the streets. And you’re right; kids back then didn’t know “perfectly well” SHIT about these designer pharmaceuticals. They were a shitton of fun until they weren’t.

had the dumb idea to toke every time they shot up and im still coming down as im writing this so take this lightly. been a long ass time since ive felt genuinely scared from a movie, damn did this leave me gutted. our high school had somewhat of a heroin problem for a while, everyone knew someone in some way affected by it, and watching this knowing most of it can happen and is happening somewhere in real life you cant help but feel absolutely helpless. its so easy to just say “dont do drugs” but far trickier to help past that point, which is why i’m glad the movie began after abstinence ceases to be a possibility. there was very little any individual could have done to prevent what happened, the blame lies on the system, with each participant holding eachothers hands behind their backs. only proper drug reform can maybe get us out of this hell. great movie 9/10 expected it to be trippier but thats ok thank you EUM

Hey Franky. My Catholic Grammar was hell. Rife with coke, I didn’t use drugs, didn’t even smoke cigarettes back in those days. I was bullied. To this day, being a nineties kid, I will never accept or move on from what I endured, enough to say truthfully that if I was American, I would have shot up the fucking school. Yeah, people move on, they forgive, I can’t and I won’t. I’m in my thirties, I have a child and I’m a sign language interpreter. I’m single and a functioning alcoholic, more of a binge drinker, per se. Shit sticks.. I have searched up old schoolmates and they’re the most fattest droll cunts now I’ve ever seen, isn’t it great karma served them? But I’m an alco so who cares, just my dregs I’m supplying

Such a great movie. If you ever want to do hard drugs, watch this first. Sobering up people since the year 2000. Never understood how people can do heroin. I only messed with psychedelics and cannabis. Coke seemed too crazy, and heroin looks gross. I couldn’t mess with needles anyway. Those uppers for the mom were way too many. Im not sure what was scarier. That scene of Marion hugging the bag of heroin after going to that insane party was intense. She gave everything up for that bag.

Most overrated garbage of all time. A couple of camera tricks to get the newborns excited. It’s almost as overpretentious as inception.

An emotionally manipulative DARE psa with the depth of a puddle. Darren Aronofsky can come up with some cool shots or scenes but its all in service of masterbatory misery porn with nothing to say other than “drugs bad, diet culture bad”.

As the girls of america are going on a sex-strike you will be needing a lot more mother porn than poor VQ could provide. However women are actually more sexually active than men so I doubt the strike will be anything of significance. I expect abortion bus routes will popping up all over the place. Just think of the carnage on the trip home.
