This is a great collection.

Requiem is a very dark movie about drug addiction. It doesn't glamourize addiction like some movies. Even the great film Drugstore Cowboy makes it seem like it wouldn't be all that bad to be addicted to drugs. When I watched this movie I kind of had a creepy feeling after it was over. Kind of like that was a slimey film on my mind that needed washing away.

PI is about a mathematician obsessed with PI. He obsesses over finding patterns in the stock market and searches for an elusive 216 digit number which is also of special interest to a group of religious Jews who believe the number is proof of the existance of God. Or, at least, that was my understanding of that aspect of the movie. This one is in in black and white.

Both are great

"These are both fabulous movies giving us the world on drugs and the mathematical thriller. Both by Darren Aronofsky, these films rank on my top ten of greatest. Pi, filmed in black and white, explores the world of Max Cohen and his knowledge of the 216 digit number everyone wants. The ending is quite a shocker and wil stay in your head for days. The music accompanied by the movie is also quite powerful. Requiem for a Dream explores the rise and fall of four very similar people on drugs. Ellen Burstyn, who takes diet pills not knowing they are drugs, gives a knock out preformance and should have won best actress. Jared Leto i very real and powerful. Jennifer Connely bares from waist to bottom in an inspiring scene and also gives a powerful preformance. Marlon Wayans gives one if on his only great acting display. The quick cut shots and the fifteen minute ending, will also stay in your head. But the both of them. You will not regret it."
Buy it

"my brother bought requiem for a dream a while ago and i watched it for the fourth time today. instead of just watching, i really thought about what was happening during the movie and i have never been as shocked by a movie as this one. requiem for a dream shows in plain reality what heroin and amphetamines can do to people and others around them, without glorifying them like trainspotting does. What makes this movie even more powerful is the fact that it can happen to anyone. this movie is like a scared-straight video."
Absolutely fabulous movies.

"I simply love this director. His style is so intense and forward that it's almost scary, but with each film here, he leaves you with a movie so powerful and unafraid of itself that you will never forget a single minute of it. They may shock you, they may frighten you, they may nauseate you, but they're never indulging, only giving you the truth. The descent of each movie is not glamorous, but it's bound to impact you. I recommend that even if you have never even heard of either of these, you should buy them both site-unseen. A great deal for such great movies!"
