When you stop being you and the drugs take controll.
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
