This is a hard film to swallow with some hugely discomforting brutal visuals as the worst toilet in Scotland and a dead child making this anything but comfortable viewing. Adding to this brutality are some characters that you can not cheer on nor are very likable. Good acting, dialogue and cool editing may make this a favorite for some, but I landed in the middle somewhere.
As cores, a rapidez; é como um sonho que por momentos nos faz esquecer que estamos lúcidos. A pressa de viver, misturada com a pouca vontade de continuar. É como entrarmos num loop infinito, cujas cores nos tiram qualquer vontade de sair, e por isso continuamos, agarrados e apaixonados a um filme que, na minha opinião, é uma obra prima.
There's lots of films I've watched a long time ago that i'm catching up with rating-wise (since it's inevitable to forget some behind in the massive matrix of films one watches in a lifetime) but it's unforgivable to forget one of the earliest, most impactful films of my teenage years! Trainspotting is the closest to being the film-Manifesto and Techno-Anthem of the late 90s youth culture and existentialism.

This is no joke.
One of the best films from the 90s and arguably Danny Boyle's most inspired work. Trainspotting is a rare movie that keeps you on edge of your seat from the opening frame to the last. Kinetic, energetic, riveting, and never-ever boring, Boyle constantly keeps things moving - literally - the camera is always moving - a perfect marriage of form matching content. For a film that is over 20 years old, it still holds up.
