The first time I watched Requiem for a Dream was at a friend's birthday party during my sophomore summer at Dartmouth. I think we went into not exactly knowing the impact the movie would have, but it wasn't exactly fitting with the celebratory mood we were originally in. When the credits finally rolled, I felt like I'd been beaten down and kicked in the stomach.
It was that good. Not appropriate for the occasion, but very good nonetheless.
So, when I saw it on the cheap on Blu Ray, I double dipped and picked up a copy. One of the things that will definitely benefit the movie is the boost to the sound as RfaD had a powerful sweeping score. While I'm hesitant to watch this tragic tale of addiction and loss again, seeing and hearing it in HD might just be worth it.
