A great road movie. A great drug movie. A great black comedy. One of the best movies of the 1980s.
‘Drugstore Cowboy’ really knocked my socks off when I first watched it about 12-13 years ago, and it still impresses me every time I view it again. An unsentimental drug movie that doesn’t resort to knee jerk moralizing, it is one of the very best movies of the 1980s, and still one of the best movies of its kind (Alison Maclean’s underrated ‘Jesus’ Son’ is one of the few recent movies to come close to it). Gus Van Sant looked like he was going to be one of the most exciting directors of the 1990s, but after the excellent ‘My Own Private Idaho’ it quickly proved not to be so, his career ending up with awful saccharine “uplifting” Hollwood dreck and his misguided remake of ‘Psycho’ that’s best if we pretend never happened. Whatever he went on to make there’s no denying that this is one brilliant movie. Matt Dillon gives one of his strongest and most complex performances, and he is backed up by an equally impressive supporting cast of Kelly Lynch (easily her best role), the wonderful James LeGros (‘Floundering’), future sex symbol Heather Graham (‘Boogie Nights’), and quirky character actor fave Max Perlich (‘Truth Or Consequences, NM’). Also keep an eye out for the shoulda-been-a-star James Remar (‘The Warriors’) and a cameo by the legendary William S. Burroughs as “the Priest”. ‘Drugstore Cowboy’ has energy, humour, depth and honesty. I love it. A wonderful movie and highly recommended.
Excellent look at a subculture. This film grows in stature over time.
Drugstore Cowboy takes a look an element of the drug/crime subculture without glamorising, sensationalising or demonising it. I honestly can’t think of another film on a similar subject that has managed to pull off this balance so successfully.
We care about the characters, but are completely aware of their (many) flaws. We are shown that drugs are pleasurable, but given a realistic portrayal of the great damage they can do. The crime scenes are exciting but we never lose sight of how risky and sometimes pathetic the crimes are.
This film is moral without moralising and humane without romanticising or sentimentalising the subject. Drugstore Cowboy may lack the visceral punch of a film like Trainspotting, but has a subtlety, depth and heart missing from other more voyeuristic cinematic treatments of drug use.
