SANTA MONICA, CA (August 10, 2020) – One of the most powerful psychological films ever made, Requiem for a Dream Director’s Cut arrives on 4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray™ and Digital) October 13 from Lionsgate. From Academy Award®-nominated director Darren Aronofsky(2010, Best Director, Black Swan), the critically acclaimed film features cinematography by two-time Academy Award® nominee Matthew Libatique(2010, Best Achievement in Cinematography, Black Swan; 2018, Best Achievement in Cinematography, A Star is Born), music by Golden Globe nominee Clint Mansell (2006, Best Original Score, The Fountain), and stars Academy Award® winners Ellen Burstyn (1974, Best Actress, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore), Jared Leto (2013, Best Supporting Actor, Dallas Buyers Club), and Jennifer Connelly (2001, Best Supporting Actress, A Beautiful Mind), as well as Marlon Wayans (Scary Movie franchise, White Chicks). Remastered for the first time in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos — and packed with brand-new bonus material — this 20th Anniversary Requiem for a DreamDirector’s Cut package is the ultimate way to experience the film.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary with a 4K Ultra HD release, Requiem for a Dream — with a screenplay by Aronofsky and Hubert Selby Jr., based on Selby’s novel — is a hypnotic film about four people pursuing their visions of happiness. Even as everything begins to fall apart, they refuse to let go, plummeting with their dreams into a nightmarish, gut-wrenching freefall.

Available for the very first time in this stunning format, the Requiem for a Dream 4K Ultra HD scan was supervised by cinematographer Matthew Libatique and includes four brand-new featurettes exclusive to this release. Experience four times the resolution of full HD with the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, which includes Dolby Vision, bringing entertainment to life through ultra-vivid picture quality. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver spectacular colors never before seen on a screen, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. Additionally, the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack features Dolby Atmos, which will transport viewers from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with moving audio that flows all around them. Fans will feel like they’re inside the action as the sounds of people, places, things, and music come alive with breathtaking realism and move throughout the space.

The 20th Anniversary Requiem for a Dream Director’s Cut 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack will be available for the suggested retail price of $22.99.

I'm sorry, but there is no way I would want to watch this very depressing movie again and especially in 4K/UHD.

Robert,

I am kind of glad you were the guinea pig here.

I never heard of this film. When I saw the press release and grabbed the trailer link, I took a look at it.

It seems to me that this is a highly acclaimed film. The reviews on Amazon for the Blu-ray rate it very high saying it is the most emotionally "real" film they have ever seen.

But many felt the same way you did. It's not the kind of thing you want to watch again.

I am kind of thinking I should sit this one out.

I actually watched this movie during one of our HTF Meets out in LA. A group of HTF members watched it at a Hollywood movie theater. It's a really good film about drug addiction with tremendous acting performances by Leto, Jennifer Connelly, Marlon Wayans and especially Ellen Burstyn. However, as our group walked out of the movie theater, we all acknowledged what a tremendous film it is, but none of us had any desire to ever watch it again. It's that depressing about a severe problem in today's society. In this film, there is no sugar coating of this serious issue.

It's been 20 years since that theater viewing and there are film sequences that still haunt me today.
