Why do harry and what's his face get arrested in Requiem?
    #2448815 - 03/18/04 09:31 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

What did they do?

Harry had a fucked up arm because he DOES H. So what? You can't be arrested because you do H. Were they carrying? Why damnit? It doesn't make sense.

Yeah I noticed that, too... Doctors aren't allowed to call the cops even if the patient is on drugs, because of the professionnal secret.

Well I guess they overlooked that law for the film.

hmmm that's not true, doctors report i.v. drug use to the police all the time, it depends on the doctor.

Might depend on the country too.. Because in Canada I'm pretty sure they can't call the cops.

But that movie is in the USA so I guess the doctors can call the cops lol.

But can they call the cops because the person DOES drugs??

He didn't have H ON him. He wasn't high at the time. He just had an injury BASED on drug use.

That part always confused me too. Since Harry was shooting up in the van, I think it implies they were holding.

Yeah, but I doubt he'd bring it into the hospital with him.

I think I can safely say that was an exaggeration. Doctors have patients all the times for drug-related injuries, freakouts, drug overdoses, etc. I know kids who have had to go to the hospital, and I myself was forced there once. They've never called the cops. It makes no sense to call the police because an addict has a collapsed vein and an arm infection. The director was probably just trying to prove a point and make the film unrealistically dramatic.

I hope so. If something like that ever happened for real, I'd be ashamed of society. The doctor DIDN'T EVEN HELP HIM FIRST! What kind of TERRIBLE twisted kind of action is that? He could have at least helped him and THEN called the police. Good thing that is a terrible, terrible exaggeration.

They were in bumfuck hicksville, right? Maybe the law didn't give a shit about it because they were two obvious heroin addicts from the north... and one was black, so they hated both of them. Because of this they probably made an exception for them because they're ignorant fucktards. Could've claimed they had a bunch of heroin on them, and they wouldn't have much chance of defending themselves in court in a small corrupt town... they got sucked into the system.

One of my favorite movies ever. Depressing... though the music is masterful

You sure man? It was white powder, they got the typewriter eyes and everything. I went through a bad few months at the beginning of 07 and was banging powder. Everything looked the same.

the had drugs in the car obviously. remember when they shot up in the field on the way down? they obviously brought enough heroin for the trip. and who's car was it? neither of them ever had a car at any point before in the movie. perhaps it was a stolen car. and ty ends up in prison as his final hell since he had multiple charges against him. there was the charge from when brody got whacked, he explained the charge he received but i forget what it was. since he got that he probably wasn't supposed to leave the state, which would be another charge whenever he got caught in SC. and of course the felony possession of heroin...and all those added together = a hefty prison sentence.

In the movie they shoot coke and Heroin.

I thought everyone knew that?

I like free markets and all. Truly I do, at least in general, but there needs to be some kind of oversight in recognition of sustainability. Life works the same way, on a bunch of sustainable systems. Why not honor what made us what we are and take some lessons? Nature FTW!

They certainly were shooting up both, now that I think about it. I seem to remember them putting some white shit on a spoon... and definitely remember them saying "this is some boss scag" when Harry was fucking with his turntable.

Some people i swear, you can't just blindly assume your rights will be protected at all times. I've had to go to the hospital for an overdose and they most definitely called the cops, they ended up dropping the charge, but they still called them in.

Don't assume that because you had a doctor that *didnt* call the cops that there won't be a doctor that will.

Great movie, beautiful cinematography. Also, i think that the directors intended the movie to be about heroin, but they obviously didn't know much about the drug. I remember a couple scenes where they do a close up of the eyeball and show their pupils, they get gigantic, but banging opiates does the exact opposite.
