Film Screening -- "Drugstore Cowboy" (dir. Gus Van Sant, cinematography by Robert Yeoman, 1989, 100min, USA, in English, Color, DVD) -- Matt Dillon gives the performance of his career as the drug-addicted criminal who masterminds a series of robberies in the Pacific Northwest. A harsh and decidedly unsentimental look at life on the fringe that deals honestly with the world of controlled substances. A top notch cast includes Kelly Lynch, James LeGros, Heather Graham, James Remar and William Burroughs as Father Tom, the junkie priest. -- "One of those cult classics well worth investigating even if you have never so much as smoked a cigarette in your life."
