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.

And then life spirals for all four of them, with the spiral of Harry’s world running parallel to his mother’s more socially acceptable addiction.

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.

If you’re ever feeling too happy and feel like you need to add some misery to make your life complete, this one is a masterpiece.

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.

One of the greatest films of all times… It has all elements of a tragic story.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »
