Danny Boyle United Kingdom, 1996

Adam Whybray's rating of the film Trainspotting

3.7 stars. Wildly entertaining and occasionally deeply sad cartoon of '90s drug culture that certainly encouraged more than a few misguided sods to get hooked on heroin. I guess it's a question of whether you feel sinking into the floor in a state of absolute bliss compensates for seeing a dead baby crawl across the ceiling. Welsh's scabrous tone is hard to capture on film, but Boyle did a good job here.
