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

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

"7 / 10 - Yes. This movie is worth deserving of a higher rating and the acting and directing are perfect but I really strugled watching some scenes that were realistic about drugs that made me uncomfortable. So yeah, if don't mind blood and syringes watch it because it gives you an authentic portrayal of a drug addict life."

"22/1/17 One of the stand-out films of the 90's. This inventive, funny, shocking and powerful film has more energy than any film has any right to have as we follow the drug-fuelled lives of Renton, Sick-Boy, Spud and Begbie. A landmark in British cinema."
