Hi,

Welcome to Wikipedia. You should probably look over the Wikipedia:Neutral point of view policy - in general, it is not OK to delete criticism from an article and insert praise for a subject. Wikipedia aims to present all points of views equally, and I'm sure you're aware that Requiem for a Dream is not without its critics. Thanks for contributing. Rhobite 20:30, Jan 26, 2005 (UTC)

"its unrealistic portrayal of drug use, especially as it relates to care given to addicts seeking medical attention"

I feel that the drug use in this film IS very realistic. Please explain to me why it isn't.

This movie in particular also is, in a very small way, a small glimpse into medical malpractice. Not all medical facilities are a clean shop. Junkies ( such as the Harry character ) are looked at as self-abused patients as opposed to the average ill patient. The elderly character ( played by Ellen Burstyn ) was under the care of not medical professionals, but by two low payscale hospital employees. Being that the film is set in an urban environment, a place where you will see every walk of life, the elderly character was "just another wacked patient" in their boring job.

License tagging for Image:Stevenson1997.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Stevenson1997.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

File permission problem with File:Robby Stevenson kicking off in 1997, Stevenson1997.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Robby Stevenson kicking off in 1997, Stevenson1997.jpg, which you've attributed to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCMqq-JIMzM. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:17, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
