Drug-induced masterpiece

This film is beautiful, funny, shocking, brutal, tragic, and hopeful. First time I saw it, I didn't like it much, mostly because its so hard to understand those scottish accents, but I now view it as a genuine masterpiece and destined to become a classic.

Trainspotting is a story about a bunch of friends, and I use term 'friends' in the loosest sense, that have only one thing in ... read more

''Take the best orgasm you've ever had... multiply it by a thousand, and you're still nowhere near it.''

Renton, deeply immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene, tries to clean up and get out, despite the allure of the drugs and influence of friends.

Danny Boyle makes a film that manages to get us to sympathise with a bunch of Scottish heroin addics. It can't be easy to do such a thing. The film is extremely funny at times, bleak at others, but the one emotion that pervades the entire film is hopelessness. Even once Ewan McGregor's character starts to make something of his life, he is still plagued by his old friends and eventually plumets bac... read more

200 & 99 Of My Favorite Films From The 1990's (299 movies items)

"Danny Boyle's second (and IMO, his best) directorial feature is a kinetically vocal ditty about the heroin drug scene in a culturally rich yet economically poor section of Edinburgh. Mark Renton, played by Ewan McGregor in a breakthrough role, is a young opioid dependent living in the capital city of Scotland along with his motley crew of fellow addicts. Deciding to finally seek the path of a drug free life, he quickly comes to realize that sometimes, spotting trains can be funny, while at o"

"Classic! Loved their Scottish accent and McGregor was so cute in this one."

“This movie defines a heroin addict well.

The "Choose Life" beginning was good.

Dialogues most strong part of the movie.

"If Govt declared Vitamin C illegal, we would push that, too!"

"After you get sober, you feel fucking low at the very first"

"That beats any meat injection, that beats any fucking cock in the world"

"The world is changing, drugs are changing, too."

wow. Great dialogues.

The best scene was the withdrawal scene.” read more

“A movie about a low life Scottish kids who can't function in real life, so they choose heroin to deal with their problems.

The first thing that flashed me was the screen play, and i don't want this to sound bad, but i think it was too much screen play for 90 minutes,i felt that they're talking too much with really saying anything.

I always thought that the movie structures should be balanced, that's why a cheesy movie is a cheesy movie, and a powerful movie is a powerful movie on every level, however the screen-play was nominated for an Oscar so i guess i might be the only one who felt like this.

I watched the movie twice to fully understand it, not because of complex plot or anything but because it's too much content and i guess the writing toned down a littl” read more
