Product Description:

DRUGSTORE COWBOY was one of a group of films that led to the explosion of American independent cinema. Director Gus Van Sant generally maintains his highly stylized vision, regardless of a film's budget. His later films continue to illustrate the dreamlike moments contained in highly disturbing situations.

The film captures a slice of Americana through the back door. Bob (Matt Dillon) is an energetic junkie who leads his wife (Kelly Lynch) and another couple on a reckless spree of drugstore robberies, for drugs. When he has a brush with death, Bob realizes he must leave both his addiction and his wife if he wants to survive. Van Sant's lush photography gives us a glimpse into these lives, lending immortality to people on the fringes of society. DRUGSTORE COWBOY is a classic film that launched the career of one of the most important American directors working today.
