Basketball Diaries 9/365

This movie was released April 21, 1995 and I saw it in the theater. I don’t remember what made me want to see it so bad but I like DiCaprio from Growing Pains and Ernie Hudson from Ghostbusters but once I saw it I appreciated Leo from that point forward as an artist.

My father took me to see it and he should not. I remember him hemming and hawing at everything and finally leaving me alone in the theater as he walked because LDC was in a bathroom stall getting a blowjob. This pretty much guaranteed a young like would become obsessed and watch it a million more times. I really dug the soundtrack and moved onto reading and listening to Jim Carroll’s works.
