The director’s public service announcements shed light on the dark drug.
As the director of “Black Swan,” “Requiem for a Dream” and “Pi,” Darren Aronofsky knows how to deliver psychological thrills. But none of his cinematic offerings are as horrifyingly real as this set of four commercials Aronofsky directed for the national group The Meth Project.
In each of the ads — three of which target Idaho, Arizona and Colorado, respectively — Aronofsky explores the oft-ignored side effects of meth abuse, including prostitution, sores, violence and mental breakdowns.
They are brutally realistic and will hopefully dissuade curious people from every trying the drug, saving countless lives in the process.
