Drugstore Cowboy

Santa Monica: Avenue Pictures, 1989. Vintage studio still photograph of director Gus Van Sant and actor Matt Dillon on the set of the 1989 film.

Noted director Gus Van Sant's first feature film, and a breakthrough film for actors Matt Dillon and Kelly Lynch. A nihilistic answer to the onslaught of coming-of-age movies in the 1980s, appropriately released at the end of that decade. The unsentimental exploits of a group of young people driven by nothing other than boredom and an obsessive need for more drugs, leading inevitably to confusion and rampant lawlessness.

10 x 8 inches. Near Fine.
