Synopsis

Husband and wife team Bob and Diane and a younger couple of thieves resort to robbing drugstores to stay high. In spite of this tragic lifestyle they share moments of compassion and humor. The foursomes skillfully skirt the law due to Bob’s wits until the day his luck begins to change.

Our take

Gus Van Sant established himself as an outstanding voice in contemporary indie cinema with this electrifying second feature. Starring Matt Dillon in one of the best roles of his career, Drugstore Cowboy is an empathetic portrait of addiction that, while harrowing, is pervaded by cynical humor.
