The Basketball Diaries (1995)

Film adaptation of street tough Jim Carroll's epistle about his kaleidoscopic free fall into the harrowing world of drug addiction.

MTV-after-school-special castration/commodification of a uniquely dreamy/acerbic book. Which idiot let Scott Kalvert direct?

Watchable only because of DiCaprio's performance. The plot holes are huge, and the director seems to have been taking more drugs than the main character. What's he doing? 3/6
