Don't get me wrong, the acting and story was great, but I can't handle drug movies (except Requiem for a Dream), they skeeve me out too much. However, Leonardo DiCaprio is brilliant in this film.

Jim Carroll: First, it's a Saturday night thing when you feel cool like a gangster or a rockstar- just something to kill the boredom, you know? They call it a chipie, a small habbit. It feels so good, you start doing it on Tuesdays... then Thursdays... then it's got you. Every wise ass punk on the block says it won't happen to them, but it does.

" The movie is based on true events from jim carrol's life, played by leonardo dicaprio. Jim has been a great basketballplayer, but he quit because of his heroin addiction, and He's only 16 years old. He leaves his home and his mother and loses his best friends. Very nice movie, but also funny. I love the music in the movie!"

"Film adaptation of street tough Jim Carroll's epistle about his kaleidoscopic free fall into the harrowing world of drug addiction. Pretty good movie about drug addiction. Great acting and good plot. Always enjoy DiCaprio and Wahlberg. The drug life is so horrid and can really damage your life. One minute you can be the highest on the totem pole and next thing you know you broke off and crashed to bits. The ending was pretty good and bittersweet. "

Bad, but Honest reviews of my Instant Queue (107 movies items)

" One of my favorite movies about drug addiction, I've seen this movie probably 5 times and I still love it. This movie probably could've been 3 - 4 hours and really paced out the depressing/downward spiral of addiction if it really wanted to."
