Synopsis

Watch: The Basketball Diaries 1995 123movies, Full Movie Online – Film adaptation of street tough Jim Carroll’s epistle about his kaleidoscopic free fall into the harrowing world of drug addiction. As a member of a seemingly unbeatable high school basketball squad, Jim’s life centers around the basketball court and the court becomes a metaphor for the world in his mind. A best friend who is dying of leukemia, a coach (“Swifty”) who takes unacceptable liberties with the boys on his team, teenage sexual angst, and an unhealthy appetite for heroin — all of these begin to encroach on young Jim’s dream of becoming a basketball star. Soon, the dark streets of New York become a refuge from his mother’s mounting concern for her son. He can’t go home and his only escape from the reality of the streets is heroin for which he steals, robs and prostitutes himself. Only with the help of Reggie, an older neighborhood friend with whom Jim “picked up a game” now and then, is he able to begin the long journey back to sanity..
Plot: A high school basketball player’s life turns upside down after free-falling into the harrowing world of drug addiction.

Basketball and Dope
The Basketball Diaries is the story of the true experiences of Jim Carroll, underground poet and entertainer, and how he overcame drug addiction to become what he is today. Leonardo DiCaprio plays the role of Carroll. The film is not for the squeamish and it has the best drug withdrawal scenes since Frank Sinatra did Man With The Golden Arm.

We first meet Leo with his friends Mark Wahlberg, Patrick McGaw, and James Maddio as a group of delinquent Catholic school kids. They all play basketball and they all are constantly in trouble. DiCaprio is your kid with all the teen angst and self conscious about his lower class status. His mother, Lorraine Bracco, works as a chambermaid in some swank Manhattan hotel and I’m sure she parts with some big bucks to see her kid gets a Catholic school education. There’s no father in the picture.

But drugs of all kinds are available and the whole group of them get hooked with the exception of McGaw who breaks with his friends. The title is based on the notebook diary writings that DiCaprio keeps. Eventually they’re published and Carroll is acclaimed and still today as a writer who speaks to young people today.

Leo and the rest of the cast give some terrific performances. It’s easy to see why he and Mark Wahlberg became the stars they have with this film. Also Bruno Kirby as the closeted gay basketball coach who misreads DiCaprio’s mind and comes on to him is also a standout.

The Basketball Diaries hopefully if seen by some of the young will serve as a ‘scared straight’ guide to saying no to drugs. This film really does show the horrible consequences of a destructive drug habit and the fact it can be beaten and one can live a most useful life.

Review By: bkoganbing
more than gritty, and there’s really no link to Columbine
I remember that when the Columbine shootings happened, some people blamed “The Basketball Diaries”. When I saw the movie, I couldn’t understand the connection at all. True, there’s a school shooting scene, but focusing only on that misses the movie’s point. The movie is the true story of New York teenager Jim Carroll (Leonardo DiCaprio) and how he descended into the ugly world of drug addiction. If you’re squeamish, then I should warn you that there are some pretty nasty scenes of drug addiction and what happens.

Yes, it’s ugly what happens, but that’s what makes the movie so good: they’re not afraid to get down and dirty. Also starring are Lorraine Bracco as Jim’s mother, Mark Wahlberg as Jim’s friend, Bruno Kirby as the high school coach, Juliette Lewis as an acquaintance, and Ernie Hudson as a man who saves Jim from dying out in the cold.

Like I said, this is not a movie for the fainthearted. But otherwise, I truly recommend it.
