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.

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 ... read more

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1884 movies items)

" Ewan MacGregor, Ewen Bremner, Kevin McKidd, and Jonny Lec Miller, play Renton, Spud, Sick Boy, and Tommy, teens from Scotland who go about their days, shooting up heroine. Only Renton, wants to kick the habit and have “a regular life”, which is easier said than done. Based on the novel, Irvine Walsh, the film is highly controversial because some felt it glamorized drug use, rather than being the film, that shows just how destructive drugs can be. A hit film, in UK by the time, Transpott"

This is Cinema (92 movies items)

"Nunca será satisfactoria todos los intentos de final que quiere hacer Mark y pienso que es el punto de la cinta y la razón por la que 20 años después hicieron una secuela. Mark tropezará varias veces durante la cinta y ninguna solución de manual podrá mejorar su vida por completo, ya que varias mierdas pasan. Por eso, Trainspotting es un reflejo crudo y a su vez cómico de la adultez temprana occidental."
