requiem for a dream vs human traffic
this film is the adequate balance between the two films mentioned above. it shows why an outsider would be drawn into the world of e's and clubbing, and at the same time illustrating how easily drugs can shred people's lives from one moment to the next. the science fiction element is a classically trained composer writing operas being drawn into the world of fatboy slim and ministry of sound and sticking to it despite the tragic events that are an an indirect result of it, but at least it depicts drug use, so it's a safe bet that 80% of all English speaking students around the world will see it sooner or later. all cynicism aside though, i consider this to be a tolerably written, beautifully directed and beautifully shot film with a soundtrack that limewire will be grateful for. most cynicism aside, i meant.
