Just finished reading the book Requiem For A Dream

Pretty good. It's been so long since I saw the movie I thought this was a good time, while I didn't remember much. And I was right. It's a pretty intense look at addiction. The way Selby writes about it, it's pretty clear he's been there. Anyone here read any other Selby besides this or Last Exit To Brooklyn?

not sure about the book, but watching the movie nowadays it's interesting to see that adaptation turned into the late 90s/ early 2000 NY. Leto and Wayans pulled off that era perfectly. 'spect.

Maybe the movie actually took place in the 70s? Mind blown

Its supposed to be non-specific, director said he used 70s and 90s because the mix feels timeless

I don't remember. I was thinking about that, did they adapt it to be more like the 90s or whatever? I'm going to have to watch it soon. But even as you read the book, it doesn't feel like it's specifically 70s. There's some hints or references but it could have definitely been later too.
