Your whole post was quite ignorant. Re-read what you just said. You couldn't stand it, you wanted to bow your brains out, so it obviously left an impression on you, negative or not. Therefore, the filmmaker won. Why would anyone think this is a GOOD movie? Why did it win so many awards and nominations? It's because the story is actually good. A large percentage of movie-goers are not drug addicts, therefore when exposed to a story that is out of our normal boundaries, one is subjected to feel out of place. Because of that, the film leaves a heavy impression on the viewer. Even if you are a drug abuser, the film still makes an impression. Just read the posts in this thread. The film evoked an emotion of some sort from just about everyone, and that is why it's so powerful. Not only that, but did you think to consider the Cinematography and editing? Example A/C Mark Schmidt's dolly shot throughout the entire house. Do you know what kind of time and effort goes into producing a film like this? Open your mid, sit down and shut up.
