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

“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

" Most Wanted Movie: Trainspotting The movie is almost on everyone's favorite movie list. The themes in the movie are not a piece of cake, drug addiction and poverty being the main ones. It sounds like a great movie especially the performance of Ewan McGregor was praised by the viewers. "

“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

" The movie is scottish!! a bunch of 20 year old people who hang out at a friends place to consume heroin. One girl even has her babie with her...that's disturbing. A nice way to show the new generation how the old one works. It's not only about drugs, it's about chainging generations, friendship, death. The charakters are the best, especially the one who freaks out about everything, with his porno mustache lol"
