Drugstore Cowboy

Drugstore Cowboy: Bob is a junkie in the early 1970s who robs pharmacies to get the drugs. He and his friends inject everything they take, then rob another drugstore before the effects wear off, thus ensuring they are more or less perpetually high. There is some humor and some tragedy, but I was less moved by the story than by the situation. This film has a similar feel to it as Trainspotting, minus the thick accents and statutory rape, which leaves the viewer marveling at the fact that there are actually people who spend their lives this way. Such a waste, but it makes for a decent movie. And for God’s sake, man, don’t leave that fucking hat on the bed!
