Matt Dillon and girlfriend Kelly Lynch head a working team of drug addicts who are just trying to keep one step ahead of reality. The beauty of this film, apart from the excellent performances, is it's original approach and deeply personal feel. These are people we all know, not just nameless junkies lying in a doorway somewhere and even as things seem to be running along smoothly, the sense of impending doom is palpable. Original direction and an insightful script with no easy answers make this an all round great film. Look out for William S. Burroughs in a class cameo.

Matt Dillon and Kelly Lynch play a couple that use Heather Grahame and James LeGros to help them stage distraction burglaries at pharmacies in Oregon in the 1970's.

Director Gus van Sant paints a numbing and sobering look at their lives, from thwarting cop James Remar and his team, always escaping the seemingly inevitable bust and always looking toward their next big hit. After a drug related death, the second half of the film concerns itself with Dillon getting himself clean.

Without the ultra intense visuals that hallmarked the later 'Trainspotting' and 'Requiem For a Dream', van Sant uses time lapsed superimposed images to convey moments of thought and of being high. Matt Dillon in particular portrays the pained intensity of a troubled young man very well and Lynch is good, also, conveying a hard-edged individual.

The film never wags any fingers nor blames anybody, or anything. There is no glamour either. Somewhat unlike the other two aforementioned drug movies, there's little squalor or total degradation. No pained or graphic scenes of opiate withdrawal. Drugstore Cowboy doesn't have the roller-coaster ups and downs of those two films, either and we're left with a quality drama that informs as much as it entertains. There's also a smattering of dark humour and a great soundtrack too, that superbly enables the mood.

Format: DVD
This 1998 film, directed by the now famous Gus Van Sant, follows a group of drug users, on their road trip around the North-West states of America, during the 1970′s. It stars Matt Dillon, getting his first grown up role, after years spent playing a teenage renegade. He does not disappoint, never overplaying his part, and holding the film together.
There is nothing judgmental about the plot either. Despite robbing shops, breaking into places, and living outside the law, the four leads are not treated as either heroes, or criminals. They are just doing what they do, until their luck runs out. Much is made of Dillon's character being obsessively superstitious, and there is a sense that the four regard themselves as a family, more so than their own real families can offer.

This is not a perfect film, far from it. It is an unusual film though, and it is refreshing to see locations other than the all-too familiar streets of New York, Los Angeles, or Las Vegas, for a change.

I was not expecting it, but this is probably one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is well played, hard scenes are not too hard (therefore avoiding shocking some sensitive people), however the message is given with full strength. It is much more than a road movie. My wife and I have liked it more than later Gus van Sant movies. Additionally, it makes you think. I will buy now the novel from which it has been adapted.

...Gus Van Sant's film is fantastic- imagine a fusion of 'Jesus's Son', 'Junky' & 'The Man with the Golden Arm' and you're close...This is wonderfully shot, the hallucinations and effects on-screen are wonderful (much better than the silly 'Trainspotting'). The hypo-injection scenes appear to have found their way into 'Pulp Fiction'!!! Matt Dillon is great- as are the supporting cast: James Remar, Kelly Lynch, Heather Graham, Max Perlich etc...There are lots of funny moments (the hat hex, the dog flashback) and moments when you see the attraction of drugs. And 'The Priest they called him', William S. Burroughs pops up as a junky ex-priest!...1989 was a watermark year in American cinema- giving us 'Goodfellas', 'Heathers' and this...This is probably Van Sant's best film, though I have an affection for 'My Own Private Idaho' and 'Even Cowgirls Get the Blues'...At this price this is a must own film- as great as 'Performance', 'Two Lane Blacktop' & 'Vanishing Point'. A great cult film.
