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.

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: January (40 movies items)

"January 22 "All I've been doing is reading this diary wondering how the hell I'm still alive?" Sometimes when I see a movie that I don't like that would seem like my type of movie, I would wonder if I would've looked upon it more favorably if I saw it a few years ago. However with this movie, I don't think I would've liked it back then either.

Bad, but Honest reviews of my Instant Queue (111 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."
