Trainspotting

Trainspotting

John Hodge's screenplay perfectly captures the desperate humour of Irvine Welsh's novel, keeping the episodic structure of junkie scenes for the first half before concentrating on Renton in London in the later stages. Fast and stylish direction, with a creative soundtrack and acting that's off-the-rails excellent, this cinematic blast from beginning to end shows a complex -- and true -- understanding of the lure and fatal consequences of drug-taking.
