I struggle to think of anything as dark as Requiem for a Dream.. that film is intense! Looking at my DVD collection though:

The Machinist - about a factory worker with an extreme case of insomnia. Christian Bale lost loads of weight for this film:


Mulholland Drive - very surreal film by David Lynch.... will leave you thinking "what the fuck was that all about" but in a good way

A Clockwork Orange - rape + murder + Ludwig van Beethoven

Ichi the Killer - Very violent, very gory, very entertaining (and all very silly)

Mate watch it asap you will love it



Fantasy mixes with the harsh reality of addiction and the desire for hope in Requiem for a Dream. Beginning at the dawn of a new summer in Coney Island, the film charts the relationship of Sara Goldfarb (Ellen Burstyn) and her son Harry (Jared Leto)--two characters who are lost with in a world of the self-absorbed desire to feed their addictions at the cost of hope and love. With a sublime score (performed by the Kronos Quartet) accompanying some intense visual imagery, the film sets up an almost fairy-tale wash over the characters' lives, with every hit of their chosen drug turning them into beautiful people surrounded by a haze which enhances all their features. However, unlike films such as Trainspotting which turn the dream into a nightmare then end with a huge dose of hope, Requiem for a Dream forces the viewer through all loss of hope and the descending madness of reality, as winter begins.
Darren Aronofsky's follow-up to the critically acclaimed Pi is a movie which exposes not only the terror caused by addiction of any kind--be it TV or Heroin--but also offers a powerful insight into the destruction caused by the desire to achieve "the American Dream". Based on the novel by Hubert Selby Jr, the film sacrifices dialogue in favour of imagery and movement: the editing and cinematography are reminiscent of MTV, however the movie takes this very aggressive style and moulds it to its own needs, adding a beautifully haunting narrative and powerful performances by its four main characters (Burstyn just missing out on an Oscar for Best female lead to Julia Roberts). Ultimately the viewer is left with a sense of desperation and despair: Requiem for a Dream exposes drugs and addiction in the most powerful and truthful way a film has ever managed, leaving no stone unturned.

If I remember correctly Thirteen is quite dark, about a 13 year old girl who gets into crime and drugs etc... and starts fucking here life up can't really remember watching it though so could be a bad recommendation.

American psycho is pretty dark interesting ending, Alpha Dog is quite dark at the end can't really think of more but will have try remember some.

Life Is Hot in Cracktown is alright bit slow at times quite a dark nature to it though.

Mean Creek is a great film and quite messed up.

Donnie Darko if you havn't seen that, really more sketchy then dark but has some dark parts.


Sorry if some of the films aren't that great can't remember them all fully.
