The Basketball Diaries (1995)
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.

A very young Leonardo Dicaprio from The Basketball diaries, a really good and pretty unknown film I’ve seen recently.
Loved the aesthetics, the direction and his performance.
I don’t know, just loved it, so I felt like doing and illustration about it. You could give it a watch, is entertaining.

"Know this. There’s different types of users of junk. There’s us street kids. Start fucking around very young, 13 or so… We think we all got it under control and won’t get strung out. This rarely works. I’m living proof. But in the end, you just gotta see the junk as another 9-to-5 gig. The hours are just a bit more inclined to shadows." — Jim Carroll
