Good list. I hate to ruin the perfect 10 by mentioning 21 GRAMS.
Thanks, and feel free, “21 Grams” is a good one.
That’s a great list man. I’ve seen them all and can’t think of another to include. Unless the alcohol induced “Withnail & I” or the hash smoking “The Big Lebowski” counts but I do don’t think they do. What about “Half Nelson”?
Great list. Can’t argue with any of these choices.
I could not agree more with your first choice. Requiem for a Dream is not only my favorite drug-related movie, but one of my favorite movies overall. It’s certainly a hard film to “enjoy” in a traditional sense, but it’s easy to appreciate the superb film-making and be completely glued in.
Great list! I’d also have to suggest Drugstore Cowboy.
Thanks! This one I have not seen, but I ll definitely check it out!
