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.

"watched: July 31, 2014 It is always nice to see a movie with Leonardo and Mark. I haven't seen too many movies from the beginning of their careers, so it was definitely worth seeing this movie, which at the margin was very good. "

" 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!"
