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

“I was a teenager when Trainspotting first came out and I remember it as somewhat of a cultural phenomenon here in Britain. Rarely could you escape the soundtrack with Born Slippy and Lust For Life filling up the radio stations. Interesting that a film about junkies should cause such a cultural stir but it's the humour and spirit of rebellion that really shines through the grimness of it all. Plus it was  a British film that was actually good, which is a lot rarer than one would think.” read more

" Notes: Either you like this movie or not, the fact remains that it is easily the most influential British movie released in the 90's. Even though I prefer 'Shallow grave', I must admit that I was really impressed by the second movie directed by Danny Boyle. Indeed, there was some great directing, some great acting and it was plain and simply a very entertaining movie. Still, even though I think it is really good, I'm not sure if it is really that great though. This is a really personal point o"
