I'm doing a reception study of Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream, which means that I'm amassing large amounts of criticism and reactions to the film. For those of you who have seen it and care to help me out, write down what you felt about the film as you watched it and your reactions afterwards. What did you expect going into it and how did it meet those expectations? Did you find it difficult to watch? If watched with friends or in a crowded theatre, how did the people around you react (did anyone walk out?). These are just suggestions, you can just tell me that you hated it or loved it. Just as long as you explain why. Thank you.
