If I was trying to scare off a teenager from trying hardcore drugs, I would show him or her Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream. There’s a reason they show gruesome car crash videos in driver’s education classes, and the same principle is at work in Requiem and now these disturbing anti-meth PSAs directed by Aronofsky. Aronofsky directed some anti-meth ads a few years ago, but these are his newest ones. Either way, these ads are incredibly effective and not like those stupid “Friendship: My Anti-Drug!” or that one about the girl who loses all her bones because she smoked pot.
