Everyone loves a good rock bottom moment so we have compiled a list of the best drug induced breakdowns created on film. Take a look at our top list as created by the minds of Zoot Nation as we enjoy our rock bottom moment sitting on the couch all day fighting off a hangover. A little hangover has nothing on these scenes.
Honorable Mention: Saved by the Bell- Jesse gets addicted to caffeine pills she uses to study. Not a movie but this had to make the list just because it’s such a memorable childhood tv moment. Get it together spano.
#8 The Program – Lattimers roid rages hard after making the starting defense. So awsome.
#7 Boogie Nights – “You got the touch!” John C Reilly and Mark Wahlberg’s coke fueled attempt at making a hit record. The magic is in the tapes. Long live Brock Landers and Chess Rockwell!
#6 Trainspotting – Ewan McGregors bad bedroom trip. Spinning baby heads and all.
#5 Basketball Diaries - Leo and Wahlberg lose their shit on the basketball court after taking the wrong pills.
#4 Less Than Zero – Robert Downey Jr’s coke to crack breakdown. A montage of the progression of his character. One of his best performances.
#3 Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas – Possibly Johnny Depps best performance ever. The whole movie is essentially a drug induced breakdown, but the acid trip at the hotel is possibly the best scene of the film.
#2 Scarface- Al Pacino snorts a mound of coke and takes about 50 bullets and keeps killing. Definitely not good for your health but being able to go face first into a pile of blow is respectable to some extent. I wouldn’t do it but I respect it.
#1 Requiem For A Dream – Probably the most depressing movie scene of all time. Everyones lives hit absolut rock bottom.
