Watch: ‘Requiem for a Dream’ 20th Anniversary Performance of “Lux Aeterna” Celebrates the Film’s 4K Home Video Release

Even if it’s been many years since you’ve seen Requiem for a Dream, director Darren Aronofsky‘s gut-punch of a movie, you can probably hear the film’s most famous piece of music in your head if you read the words “Lux Aeterna.” That catchy, eerie song comes courtesy of composer Clint Mansell, and since Requiem for a Dream is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the Kronos Quartet has reconvened (in a socially-distanced setting, thanks to the pandemic) to bring that haunting tune back int...

Watchmen Screenwriter Reveals Plans for an Alternate Ending

Watchmen Screenwriter Reveals Plans for an Alternate Ending Whatever you have to say about Zack Snyder’s filmmaking style, his Watchmen movie is about as faithful an adaptation that fans of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ graphic novel could have hoped for. The only major deviation from the source material was the omission of the giant squid, which Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias transported to New York in order to bring about global peace. Snyder’s film instead framed Doctor Manhattan for a series of e...
