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.

Movies that Inspired Real Life Crimes (15 movies items)

" The Basketball Diaries features Leonardo DiCaprio as a talented basketball player who spirals into heroin addiction. Like Inception, the major controversy stems from a dream consequence: in The Basketball Diaries DiCaprio has a daydream where, clad in a black trenchcoat, he enters his class with a shotgun and proceeds to massacre his classmates like Xaero with quad-damage. And, just like Inception, when someone follows Leo’s example, people die. Case in point: Barry Loukaitis’ 1996 classroo"

"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."
