The Basketball Diaries

Jim Carroll's dreamy, pseudo-poetic memoir of a misspent New York boyhood -- standard equipment for alienated adolescents of the 90s -- is predictably re-tooled as an anti-drug message vehicle. If the idea of watching Leonardo DiCaprio pout for 90 minutes gives you sweaty palms, by all means go. Look for an unbilled Juliette Lewis.
