Best Dark Films / Requiem of a dream

Requiem For A Dream shows the tragic dissent of hopeful Brooklyn residents into a frenzy, psychosis, drug addiction and prostitution. It depicts a disillusioned culture where joy is ephemeral. Worse is the pursuit of happiness, which gradually consumes and eliminates them. As a result, their evolution is solely backwards.

2. Irreversible

Best Dark Films / irreversible

Irreversible is said to be one of the most disturbing films with a brutal rape scene that is 10 minutes long. The film is difficult to process since it is told in a reverse chronological manner by director Gaspar Noe who leaves viewers in despair and disturbed by the end! Upon watching the movie I was utterly disturbed, disgusted, and scared.
