I watched Requiem for a Dream last night. Oh my God. I hated it so.

I couldn't believe how stupid it was. I mean, it was "well-done" or whatever. But as far as being "deep" or "brilliant" or having whatever qualities of greatness that all of these pseudo-intellectual emo fringe types credit it with... I don't think so. I don't think I would have been able to sit through it if I hadn't been inebriated. Why are suburban white kids so fascinated with gritty movies about drug addiction? I mean, it was tolerable until Jennifer Connelly started doing the double ass penetration to support her heroine addiction. That's a little too much contrived melodrama for my taste.
