This is a lilteral horror film from top to bottom. This movie is scarier than any horror film I've seen. The way this film depicted addiction is tragic and is very effective in its execution. All 4 actors acted there ass off shoeing a wide range of emotions with Ellen Burstyn easily being the most tragic one. The only thing that is stopping this movie from Being a masterpiece is its editing. It was cool at first and sometimes it shows to be effective but they got to carried away after a while. This film has way to much overly edited scenes that was to much from, the unnecessary sound effects to the quickly cut away from scenes. It really hurt my enjoyment of it. I was reminded I was watching a film.

If you want to keep your kids off drugs, this is the movie to show them. Heck, one could argue that it should be shown in schools. There would be absolute outrage from the parents, and some of the administration would be fired, but you can’t say it wouldn’t be effective

I've always seen this film as a more stylised companion piece to Trainspotting. Due to the way it either sensationalises or overdramatises the Heroin lifestyle it always felt like a look from the outside instead of a look from within.

this movie is truly one of the most disturbing films i’ve ever watched. it demonstrates how drugs can grip hold of someone’s life, and the different attitudes toward different drugs (and how pharmaceuticals are seen as acceptable). not only this, but it also shows attitudes toward addicts during the time it was shot, and how health care and hospitals treated them.

This movie is really hard to watch at times highlighting the horror of substance abuse both for recreational use and prescriptional. Really tragic story which proves to have no happy ending as the highs are eventually outweighed by the lows Strong performances from Jared Leto and most of the cast. This movie is really intense at times as a result of the fast paced special effects and with most addiction movies turns sour. Good movie. Solid watch despite a hard one. 7/10

Very sad but it shows the true horrors of drug use. I wouldn’t rewatch it just because of how harshly real it was.

A scathing critique of the pursuit of happiness by means of materialism, this film offers a highly uncomfortable look at four people, each with their own ideas of what will make them happy. The results are nightmarish and are presented in a brilliantly unique way through Aronofsky's direction, coupled perfectly with Jay Rabinowitz's editing and some truly powerhouse performances from the principal cast. Not for the squeamish.

A hard watch showing the consequences of addiction. I love that it also looks at the dangers of ‘acceptable’ drugs like diet pills.
