This is the real story of youth in the 1990s: chemicals, clubs, bars, pubs, pushing the vinyl, blagging the guest list, mobile phones, trainers, care-less, mashed, sorted, safe. And here it is in all its pupil-dilated, teeth grinding, club-hopping glory. The weekend has well and truly landed…
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
a fun and energetic film about partying and drugs that acknowledges it's influences (by literally referencing them) and still manages to be refreshing enough in its own. not for everyone but for those who can somewhat relate to the slacker yet heartfelt 20-somethings, you're in for a treat
It won't be too revealing to say that Trainspotting was more than an inspiration for the movie. It's only softer, more polite, polished, easier to digest, politically correct and less European. All of these being the reasons it stands no chance in comparison.
For fans of (90's) rave (culture) an exhalerating film. A suprisingly honest exploration into the surfaces of depth of the everyday life of a weekend druggie.
From fucked up jobs, the abysal absence of long term perspectives for youth in late capitalism, the dudeism, that is patriarchy in it's partyform (plus a single deplaced rapejoke) and the most on spot scene of an after hour I've seen on film so far - love it.
1999 version: A magical-reality, 4th wall-breaking tour of a bunch of 90's british partying. And it's that style that really makes it funny (spliff politics, the star wars scene, the night report are hilarious), and even poignant at the end. A real fun time. Safe as fuck.
