Double Take: Requiem For a Dream

Purple in the morning, Blue in the afternoon, Orange in the evening, and Green at night.

What I remember from this movie is that it was very dark. Deep emotions and hard to watch scenes guided this movie that gave me an unsettling feeling. From a third person movie perspective. Darren Aronofsky created a realistic take on the additions of drugs and other emotions that plague us and can lead us down a dark path. I was about 19 almost 20 yrs old when I first saw this film. Just starting to be out on my own but still unaware of what drugs did to a person. So this movie was very eye opening for me. I picked this movie because now that I am older and also on my own taking care of myself, I wanted to see if I would react the same or more connected to the movie.
