Decided to check out some more Aronofsky, so I watched Requiem for a Dream this afternoon. I have to say, I found this film both haunting and quite powerful. It's an unflinching look at addiction, and because of that it's a really visceral punch to the gut. The score and direction both do a great highlight the film's central ideas, as does the emphasis on imagery rather than dialogue (some of the shots here are equally beautiful and haunting). It isn't subtle, but the editing, cinematography, and direction do a strong job of wordlessly conveying the descent into hell that is addiction. Finally, all the performances here are quite strong. I'll write more on Letterboxd, but 9/10.
