Still as relevant today as when it first came out. I just love this movie. This is the role The Oscars should have nominated Leo for.

Wow, never seen a movie that felt so real. I can't believe I haven't seen this before, makes me see Leo in a whole new light as an actor. Drugs really can mess up your life and this movie is a perfect example of how. Very great film, a must watch.

I love this movie. It is based on a true story and Leo played the part excellent. I believe this movie should be shown in school when discussing the dangers of drugs.

I had never watched this movie. The 2 elements that struck me the most were DiCaprio's exceptional performance, and how much the movie inspired Requiem for a Dream. Also, Mark Wahlberg going into acting, definitely his best career move.

DiCaprio was, has been and will remain one of the finest actors out there. Superb acting, great story line. This movie actually dares to adress real issues that happen to real people. Comin from a family with similiar background, I got to say: kids, take a close look at this movie because this is as close as you can get to the nastyness thats out there waiting for you if you decide to mess with drugs, without actually going there. I'll give this movie 9/10. Also - you may do some further readin on Jim Carroll. Interesting figure. May he rest in peace now. Enjoy this movie.

Leonardo is such an amazing actor. I don't think he get's enough acknowledgement for that. You don't also see young kids in movies like this anymore. Teen's play such Disney rolls now. This movie needs to be watched more so then most crap they have now a day's

this movie was so intense, what a great movie! Leo's acting never ceases to disappoint me, love him

This movie saddens me. It is very relative and true to what results of drug use.. even to modern day. Watched it many of times and it is still great despite it not being too raw of the drug environment it is just the right amount of tidy to make an impact. Leonardo's acting is beautiful here too.

This is an excellent film, drugs really can ruin a person's life and end dreams of being successful. Leonardo DiCaprio is one of my favorite actors. 10/10
