Okay, I think I understand what this film is trying to get across. It's not about drug addiction. It's not about any kind of addiction. This movie is about 4 people, each of whom have a dream about what they want in life. The problems start when they each take what seems to be a shortcut to their dreams. You can't do that. Life will not let you cheat. If you want to realize your dreams then you must work for it. That's it in a nutshell. Taking a shortcut of ANY sort will get you lost and you'll have to start all over again, if you're lucky enough to be able to.

^^ I'm wondering how anyone could watch this movie and say it's not about drug addiction.

This movie creeped me out so much. eep! that scene where the girl is so eager to get some more that she goes over to that guys house and performs an "act" with another girl and an obscenely large toy, with a large group of horny men watching. so gross.

Well that's a load of crap. The movie is completely based on drug addiction and three shattered lives because of it.

I do see where this is coming from. I don't think it's a "load of crap."

I don't think you can say the movie isn't about drug addiction, however. It just isn't about drug addiction alone.

THe movie IS completely based on drug addiction. Stop looking for something that is not there.

The movie is based on addiction, not only drug addiction.
The "mother" part is the best.

Next you'll tell me that Lord of the Flies is just about a group of boys stranded on an island.

I think abzurd's explanation is the best. And I agree about the mother part.

I think it's suppose to mean different things to different people, theres no set rule on how your suppose to interpret the movie.

I enjoyed it, very well done. Burstyn did an amazing job.

The only thing I didn't like was Leto's weak attempt at a Brooklyn accent.

Jennifer Connelly is so beautiful that it sickens me...

delusion over addiction

Certainly an interesting movie. One of the very few that can get away with having almost no plot at all.

Burstyn's acting was great and her storyline was simply what made this movie.
The young junkie (Wayans, Leto, Connelly)...we've seen it a lot of times and it wasn't really that disturbing of a depiction. Good entertainment, but not earth shattering.
The mother part however had much more drama in it. Someone involuntarily becoming dependent on pills, induced by the pathetic life she's leading.

It would've been more interesting to see what led the younger characters to starting to use drugs.

Still, a great movie that I would recommend to anyone.
Oh..and about it being an "anti-drug movie"....dunno...do we call The Godfather an "anti-maffia" movie?
There's good and bad things to do in this world. We can figure out which things are on which side of the balance without being told by a movie.

Great movie! I love it

As most people have said, this movie freaked meout. I went to see it with a friend and neither of us said a word on the car ride home. It's a great movie to watch for anyone thinking of trying heroin. I just felt awkward and sad as I watched. However, that was probably the intent of the movie to show how intense addiction can be. I'm glad I saw it once , but I will probably never watch it again.

I watched this movie recently. I actually nearly got sick watching it, as some movies just really affect me. The way the camera moves, the music, the very movie itself in plot and design makes you feel like you're somehow involved in each up and down. By the end, I was seriously tired; drained.

It's really worth watching. I could so relate to to Burstyn's role. When I had a problem with my doc perscribed meds I felt so much like that.

I think it's one of those movies worth watching, but not over and over again. If someone forced me into watching it more than once a month... I'd probably kill over.

THIS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST MOVIES........MY PAST WAS MUCH LIKE THIS MOVIE.I FELT AND LIVED ALMOST EVERY PART OF IT.TO HAVE A MOVIE THAT RELATES TO A PART OF YOUR LIFE ITS JUST CRAZY.ITS HARD FOR ME TO EVEN WATCH IT NOW IT TURNS MY STOMACH.I THINK THEY SHOULD SHOW THIS MOVE & ACTS OF WORSHIP(anyone see that movie) TO KIDS IN SCHOOL ALONG WITH SPUN FOR THE TWEEKERS. IF I WAS TO SEE ANY OF THOSE MOVIES I MAY HAVE NOT GOTTEN IN THAT WHOLE SCENE IT HAPPENS FAST AND IM GLADE IM DONE WITH IT

Great movie. One of my favorites, and the soundtrack was worth the $14.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/3/06 - 12:14:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
I want the soundtrack so bad! I loved the music.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/3/06 - 11:13:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
I saw this movie about 2 years ago at about 2:00am, so I don't remember much about it. I remember really likeing this movie & making Labyrinth jokes whenever Jennifer Connelly would come on screen. Other than that all I can remember is the refridgerator trying to eat somebody & someone with a really badly infected arm that I think got amputated.

Its definetly time to order this on Netflix.
