Remains Aronofsky's best work to date.

This was very painful to watch, even the "funny" scenes were very dark. The cinematography is spectacular, and as usual Aronofsky squeezes everything out of his actors - memorable and extreme performances. Excellent film, but only "B" from me because it's just too depressing, saw this once on the big screen and once at home and don't plan to watch it again. Except maybe a few selected scenes because of the sheer brilliance of the photography!
My favourite from Aronofsky would be "The Wrestler", nearly tied with "Black Swan".

And so it goes, and so it goes. And the book says, "We may be through with the past, but the past ain't through with us."

Wanna win the War on Drugs? Make this required viewing in every high school. A sickening yet absolutely captivating portrayal of four normal people destroying their lives through substance abuse. Everyone involved with this film appears to be on the same page with Aronofsky's surreal and horrifying vision.
A+, but I have no desire to ever watch it again.
