R | | Drama
The drug-induced utopias of four Coney Island people are shattered when their addictions run deep.
Darren Aronofsky shot the film like a hip-hop montage (a sequence of extremely short shots) to get the sense of overwhelming addiction and loss of control. An average 100-minute film contains 600 to 700 cuts; this one contains over 2,000.
Anybody wanna waste some time?
(at around 1h 35 mins) When the two ladies visit Sara and are outside sitting on a bench, you can clearly see at the right lower part of the bench the cotton trying to appear as snow.
Ending Credits look like a syringe while scrolling.
Available in both the uncut, unrated version and an edited R-rated version (mainly for conservative rental stores like Blockbuster.)
$64,770 (USA) (8 October 2000)
