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

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.

I always thought that the movie structures should be ... read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1990's) (128 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"
