"Hell, I never promised you no rose garden. Whoever told you being a dope fiend was the easy life? Hell, it's goddamn hard work, that's what it is."
For me, Gus Van Sant's "Drugstore Cowboy" is the greatest Portland movie, one that captures an earlier, grittier town before single-origin coffee, the Pearl, and indie rock made our city so livable. I'd long been aware that it was based on a book, but have only now read it. It was unpublished when the film was released in 1989 and came out a year later with a movie tie-in cover. Written by James Fogle, it will be very familiar to those who've seen the film, although I'd argue the film is actually better because the actors make their seedy characters (it's still Matt Dillon's best role) if not likable, at least sympathetic. Fogle based it largely on his own experiences as a junkie and a thief. He died in prison.
