~ Tim's words to Marion before he shoves her to the sex party.
You know what I like best about paddy chicks? They give good head. But black broads don't know nothing about no head. I don't know why. Maybe it has something to do with some ancient tribal customs.
~ Big Tim explaining his liking for white women.

Big Tim is a minor antagonist of the 1978 book and 2000 film Requiem for a Dream.

In the film, he is portrayed by Keith David, who was also known for playing Older Guy in The Nice Guys and voicing Thailog in Gargoyles, Tublat from The Legend of Tarzan, and Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog.


Big Tim was an underground pimp from New York City. He is a reliable contact of Harry Goldfarb and a sex slave owner. Tim is an abusive and misogynistic pimp who forces women into submission without their permission.


Harry Goldfarb sent in Marion Silver to be a victim of his acts of sex and drug addiction. He admired seeing Marion while lamenting the fact that African women use tribal customs before they become victims of his degrading process.

After his talk with Marion, he sexually assaulted her. As he introduced Marion to his lesbian sex act with a greased up double-sided dildo, he injects the women with drugs before they do the sex in exchange for money. This process caused trauma for all of the women.


  • In the 2000 film, Big Tim is assisted by Uncle Hank, who is older than Tim but equally interested in making women suffer.
