The drug-induced utopias of four Coney Island people are shattered when their addictions run deep.
Dave Chappelle was offered the role of Tyrone but he turned it down.
Shit, this muthafucka's startin' to look a little seedy, man.
Harry: What's the matter, you particular all the sudden?
Tyrone: Hey, baby, I don't care if the motherfucker's growing hair just so long as we get our bread.
(at around 1h 4 mins) When Harry and Tyrone are leaving New York for Florida, Tyrone pricks Harry to the right arm. You can see pain in Harry's face. But as we know Harry's wounded in his left arm.
The closing credits feature pictures of Coney Island Amusement Park, and during the credits, the sounds of the shore can be heard.
In the opening credits for the edited version, when the title card "Requiem for a Dream" crashes down, underneath it is a red box with red lettering that reads "edited version", making it clear to the viewer that they are not seeing the true version of the film.
