weinbrandbabsi's rating of the film The Acid House

This is the movie Trainspotting might have been if it wouldn't have been so hot for the punchline - Welsh's writing is so much more than heroin and AH cultivates that: Long helicopter shot of scottish bleakness, single dads, fitball, ya ken? I really love Welsh and I really love this movie, nothing says realism and hardcore at the same time like a scottish football lad on an acid trip. Highly recommended!
