A frazzled, dangerous and dark comedy-drama.
August 20, 2010
One of those cult classics well worth investigating even if you have never so much as smoked a cigarette in your life.

All the actors are used expertly, but it's Burroughs, cropping up near the end, who articulates the film's sociopolitical moral in a contemporary context.

No previous drug-themed film has the honesty or originality of Gus Van Sant's drama Drugstore Cowboy.

Forthright junkie film.
June 20, 2006
Lyrically shot, this chronicle of a bunch of bumbling petty-criminals who steal pharmaceuticals is a tad too straightforward by Van Sant's standards, but the dialogue is funnt, the mood nonchalant, and Matt Dillon is terrific in the lead.

A darkly funny, stylish, and realistic look at the world of drug addiction in 1971.

The film takes us so deeply into this shabby, transient world that we feel its texture -- both its scary thrills and its bleak, fatalistic uncertainty.

Certainly one of the best drug movies ever made.
February 26, 2003
One of the best movies ever made about characters who live on the fringes of society. Gus Van Sant establishes himself as a major talent with this one.
