In our Podcast Series Review Avenue Streetlight, we discuss and dissect a different film each episode. We go through the film in depth, discussing the plot and pivotal scenes so fair warning for SPOILERS!
On this episode, we’re injecting our opinions of Darren Aronofsky’s sobering downer drama Requiem For A Dream directly into your brain through audio form. We explore some of its themes beyond simple drug use addiction, delve into the tragic characters and Oliver turns the Quiz into a playground of pure filth – dragging Sean down with him.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the episode and of the film itself. You can:

Requiem For A Dream is currently included in the UK Amazon Prime Video subscription.
