    I've seen it. I quite liked it.
    It's funny at parts, thought mostly serious. The story seems realistic enough (though I wouldn't know for completely) and actually did manage to scare me (not that I needed it).

    Most depressing film I've ever seen.

    Watched it when I was going through a pretty awful time in my life and it just made me cry and feel even worse.

    It does have the lovely Jared Leto in it tho which is a plus ;)

    the cinematography is brilliant, but my god it's a headfuck.

    i was exhausted afterwards. worth a watch though.

    Brilliant film, but yes, a headfuck. I watched it alone in halls, not the best of ideas, some scenes are very disturbing

    I thought it was pretty good. It put me in weird mood the rest of the day....

    I've done my good share of heroin but I have never/will never get to the point where my arm looks as bad as the main guy's arm.

    Its one of the best films I've ever seen, but I never want to see it again. I saw it at a showing without about 15-20 other people, and everyone left open-mouthed, not saying a word really. Some of the scenes were very disturbing.

    The most brutal and the most beautiful film i have ever seen....absolutely amazing, but if you have any emotions, it will make your soul feel cold at some points.

    This film should have come with a warning about its intensity.

    Peace

    what's it about?

    It's about four people who have dreams and desires to make their lives better. They all end up drug addicts and you watch as their lives -- and dreams -- begin to shatter.

    ...and so much more...read the book by Hubert Selby Jr.

    A great film. Watched it alone and felt well weird once it finished. One of the best films I've seen.
