Darren Aronofsky's harrowing tale of drug addiction, Requiem for a Dream comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. Supplemental materials include a commentary track featuring the director, a second commentary track by the cinematographer Matthew Libatique, deleted scenes with director commentary, a making-of featurette, production notes, theatrical trailers, television promos, and Ellen Burstyn interviewing Hubert Selby Jr., who co-wrote the screenplay that was adapted from his novel. This is a superb disc for both the film's many fans and DVD collectors.
