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 (1036 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"

“trainspotting ou sem limites em português, é um desses filmes antidrogas que retratam como esse estilo de vida tão popular pode ser danoso para o ser humano, o que diferencia trainspoting de outros filmes genéricos sobre esse tema é que possui um foco psicológico nos personagens ao invés de ressaltar a cada segundo de forma propagandística como as drogas são ruins e etc. Mas, além da mera crítica esse filme mostra como o hedonismo de uma vida regrada por prazeres pode destruir e afetar não só a vida de quem o pratica mas também a vida das pessoas ao redor, fazendo uma incrível análise psicológica mostrando os efeitos catastróficos do uso de drogas que creio ser algo de conhecimento geral mas que até então foi algo que raramente era abordado em obras de ficção, além d” read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1990's) (119 movies items)

" 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 might 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 p"
