The Coney Island Cyclone in Requiem For A Dream.

Thursday, October 4, 2001 6:39 PM
I am just curious to see how many people have seen the movie Requiem For A Dream. Its a strange movie, but they have a lot of great images of the Cyclone. I really want to ride that coaster. I am going to have to make it there sometime in the next year.

That is such a great movie. Probably the best film of 2000, hands down. Be prepared though, it is very disturbing.

It's about how dreams can spiral into a personal hell (dreams as in aspirations and hopes, not sleeping dreams).

Current favorite coasters:
Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) Timber Wolf
Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Mr. Freeze

Great acting, great plot, great editing.  If anyone want's to see more of the directers stuff, his name is Darren Aronofksy (sp?) and his first film is called "Pi"  check for it at blockbuster.  (sorry, little off subject :) )

It's a good film...a bit of a let down for me, though.   It was way too flashy, and the book was (as usual) far superior to the film.   The Coney Island footage is superb.

While watching it I only saw a glimce of the Cyclone (When they threw the paper airplane). The Thunderbolt was more noticable, kinda sad that it isnt there anymore. The movie was great though, the way he used the "POP" technique with the constant cutting was excellant.
