  1. spasmolytic's rating of the film The Basketball Diaries

    Too much melodrama. Like Bukowski, Jim Carroll thinks the only way to be a good poet is to live in the dregs. And he's the type of guy who brags about how hard his life is and how many of his friends didn't make it. And I can't get on board with that.

  2. Jim Fear's rating of the film The Basketball Diaries

    Seen it ages ago.. remember it because of DiCaprio saying to his mother the cleaning handkerchiefs he used to masturbate was because he had the flu or something

  10. Michael Peer's rating of the film The Basketball Diaries

    DiCaprio is brilliant in an otherwise melodramatic overwrought after-school special. Time has not been kind to this. It's much cheesier and overly dramatic than I remember. The cast does what they can with the weak script. Requiem for a Dream this is not. Still, this is a must see for DiCaprio fans.

  13. lonesome-boat's rating of the film The Basketball Diaries

    “You're growing up. And rain sort of remains on the branches of a tree that will someday rule the Earth. And it's good that there is rain. It clears the month of your sorry rainbow expressions, and it clears the streets of the silent armies... so we can dance.”

  14. Marina C.'s rating of the film The Basketball Diaries

    There are parts in this movie so raw to me that it was almost agonizing to watch.

  15. claudiaaraujo's rating of the film The Basketball Diaries

    Cruel reality. At first the film seemed almost dull but then picked up and gained substance. DiCaprio is almost too good looking for this which can be distracting but gave a solid performance.

    DiCaprio's performance is so unbelievably flawless in this. I will always have respect for him no matter what if for this movie alone.
