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.

1001 Movies ... my own version (1990's) (89 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"
