Requium for a Dream

Rating = C+

Saw this movie in Mexico in English with Spanish subtitles because I thought I remembered it got good reviews when it came out last year. It's an interesting movie, but relentlessly bleak. The acting is fine, but that characters become terribly depressing as the movie runs on overly long. Also, the cinematic devices of the director, which are interesting at first, quickly grow old, and we have to see them for another hour or more
