The drug-induced utopias of four Coney Island people are shattered when their addictions run deep.
The "Lux Aeterna" portion of the music composed by Clint Mansell for the Requiem for a Dream soundtrack has often been used since in many other contexts, such as trailers for other films (including The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), The Da Vinci Code (2006), I Am Legend (2007), Man on Fire (2004), Sunshine (2007), etc.), soundtracks for video games (Total Miner: Forge, Assassin's Creed (2007)), and background music for TV programs and advertisements. It is also commonly used as promotional and/or entrance music for many different college and professional sports teams, including: the Notre Dame, Missouri State University, Boston Celtics, and Virginia Commonwealth University basketball teams; the University of Alabama and Bowdoin College football teams, Arsenal Football Club, and the England Rugby Union Team.
Tyrone C. Love:
California, here we come.
Harry Goldfarb: It's Florida, Ty. Florida.
Tyrone C. Love: California, Florida, whatever. Either way, your pale ass is getting a tan.
(at around 1h 7 mins) When Harry and Marion get in to a fight, at the exact moment that Marion says "You promised me that everything was going to change", the shot is clearly flopped, as indicated by her bangs and the angle of her head compared with the rest of the scene.
The closing credits feature pictures of Coney Island Amusement Park, and during the credits, the sounds of the shore can be heard.
The edited version replaces the shot of Marion and another woman having sex with two men with a shot of Marion partially clothed climbing on top of a man. Also, all the shots of the double-ended dildo and the shots of Marion and the woman having sex on it have been replaced with alternate camera angles and shots that hide any indication that the two are having anal sex on it. Some shots were also re-used to hide the close-ups of the two butts slamming together.
