Danny Boyle United Kingdom, 1996

OcioActivo's rating of the film Trainspotting

One of the best from the 90's. A near-perfect drug film that fuses physical and brusque comedy quite naturally. Trainspotting also manages to be very charming and sympathetic to characters that are not only guilty but are horrible people. There's no clear plot device or standardized structure the film follows; just the facets of trying to come clean off drugs or being forced to.
