A young rebel looking for exciting, a boy out of control and hoping to try new things and live life on the edge. His journey takes him from games of basketball and petty crimes to his downward spiral into hell, this movie takes you along on his journey to feel the pain and horror. It's written well, it keeps you watching from start to finish and makes you care about the characters. The directing has been well executed and really makes you feel like you're a part of the scene. The movie is powerful and gets the message across, it's touching at times and will really make you sit back and think about things in life. Good movie, Recommended
Next to "Whats eating Gilbert Grape", this is one of Leonardos best performances. He does a great job as a narator/actor and the story of reakless youth an the poison of drugs is both gripping and exciting.
This films is about friendship and comitment and a strong warning to those kids that think they have controll over drug usage.
This film really shows how easy it is to get sucked into that hell, what it does to the person and everything around him.
It's not a depressing movie, but an eyeopener
