Darren Aronofsky directs terrifying anti-meth PSAs
(CBS) Academy Award winner Darren Aronofsky, is known for directing such critically acclaimed films as"Black Swan" and "The Wrestler." Now he's turned his lense towards helping The Meth Project - a national campaign that spreads awareness about the dangers of methamphetamine use.
The Meth Project unveiled Tuesday four shocking public service announcements directed by Aronofsky, depicting terrifying scenes of meth users in bad situations.
The shocking PSA's might be needed now more than ever. The U.S. Department of Justice says meth is at its highest levels of availability, purity, and also its lowest cost in years, according to a written statement.
Some Aronofsky fans might remember that the acclaimed director is no stranger to tackling drug abuse. His 2000 film, "Requiem for a Dream, "graphically depicted heroin and weight-loss amphetamine addiction.
In one particularly chilling PSA, called "Deep End" (seen above), a woman is seen staring into a mirror asking herself, "If I had asked what does meth do to your brain? Does meth make you hear voices?"
When the camera pans out, the scene explodes into a frantic display as the woman's mother tries to stop bleeding from cuts on her wrists.
