An Interview with Aristotle on Requiem for a Dream
Interviewer: Hello Aristotle. My name is Christina Dodson. It is an honor and a privilege to get to meet you. I will be interviewing you today about a movie you just recently watched called, Requiem for a Dream. Let’s take a second to refresh ourselves with the movie, shall we?

One of her neighbors guides her to a doctor who can prescribe her some diet pills. The connection to the other story is through Mrs. Goldfarb’s son Harry Goldfarb and his girlfriend, who are both heroin addicts. They create this grandiose scheme to buy drugs to get as much money as they can to escape their current situation with the hope of creating a better one for themselves. While in the beginning both stories start off well and both sides reap some type of reward, it’s not too long after they begin to reap the inevitable consequences that neither side gave much thought to while on their quest for transformation, in their pursuit for happiness.
