A group of drug users in the 1970's help finance their habit by robbing drug stores. Matt Dillon's character is very superstitious and eventually his luck runs out.Written by

Drugstore cowboy is about a group of drug addicts who rob Drugstores to maintain their junkie lifestyle. Unlike the other movies on drugs, Drugstore Cowboy neither glamourises the drug life nor does it portray the health affects in a hazardous manner like Requiem for a Dream.
It's probably the only peaceful movie I've watched on drugs to date. Film primarily focuses on the lead character's transition to a drug free life due to the paranoia and consequences faced by him as a junkie.
