Drug films are films that depict drug usage, either as a major theme or as a few memorable scenes. There is extensive overlap with crime movies, which are more likely to treat drugs as plot devices to keep the action moving. Drug cinema ranges from the ultra-realistic to the utterly surreal; some movies are unabashedly pro- or anti-drug, while others are less judgmental.

The drugs most commonly shown in films are marijuana, heroin, cocaine, LSD and methamphetamine. The following is a partial list of drug movies and the substance involved.
