Portrayal of drugs and addiction in Requiem for a Dream In Requiem for a Dream, Harry Goldfarb who is the main character is portrayed as a heavy user of drugs. Goldfarb is addicted to heroin and other substances that can be injected into the veins. The film opens with a sign of Goldfarb’s addiction as he steals his mother’s television set in order to pawn for cash for purchase of drugs, which she later re-purchases and the cycle continues. Harry is evidently failing to play his social role as a son to get high. He develops preoccupation with drugs to the extent that it leads him to start purchasing and selling dope as a way of getting high and making money, rejecting conventional society.
He continuously attempts to find the easy way out in treating the girl he saved. She is becoming more of a pest and a bother to him daily, so to mask that, he feeds her so many drugs she becomes addicted to them. “Rapunzel, against her every ounce of common sense, had become addicted to the nurse’s murky green elixir, despite all the veins from her arms having fallen…” (Schaffert 188). She uses so many drugs that she becomes addicted to them. The drugs become a necessity for her mere survival, all because of Axel’s over dosage.
Patricia Franchini is depicted as a naïve twenty-year-old woman who depends on her parents for money, and Michel is the gangster who steals and murders. The developing characters synchronize for a moment, but then they switch over from where the other came. The action ascends gradually, but the plot development is in the mise en cine and dialogue where Patricia swipes her thumb over Michele’s dead body. The tone and feel are exaggerated throughout the film by the instability created by Godard’s use of a handheld camera. The title, Breathless, could imply a surprise or a romantic surge, but A Bout de Souffle, has the denotation of the Last or Final Breath, which offers a significant difference as a description of the film.
