One Of THE Defining Movies Of The 90s And A Milestone For British Cinema

I remember what a raw shock of creative energy this film was when it came out, and I still marvel at what an imaginative way the director found to tell this crazy, immoral tale. The superb cinematography; the amazing cast of young actors (who have all gone on to become hugely successful in film and tv since); the iconic soundtrack: it all just fits together perfectly. 'Trainspotting' is as hilarious as it is deeply disturbing, but most importantly (and unlike many other films concerned with addiction) it's one hell of an entertaining flick and doesn't drag for a second.

We all know drugs are bad. The problem is, they can also be fun - at least at the beginning, which is one of the reasons people are drawn to them. 'Trainspotting' is the first movie I remember watching that actually conveyed that seductive quality of drugs and managed to honestly portray the reckless, hedonistic lifestyle a part of my generation - the so called "Generation X" - fell victim to. It's an amazing achievement, in every regard; not only does it manage to be true to its serious subject matter without resorting to moralizing, it's also masterclass filmmaking and a milestone of British Cinema. 10 stars out of 10.

Perhaps a bit beyond me

While very enjoyable and engaging I found myself feeling like I was watching something that wasn't for me, by almost any means. I had a level of misunderstanding when watching this film, half of that being my complete ignorance to the drug world and the other half being my inability to understand thick Scottish accents when it counts. Not to say these are flaws of the film, by no means, however I did feel that the full effect of the film as a result was lost on me. Again, I'm not saying I wasn't engaged or completely confused just, I just feel there are certain aspects that I 'just don't get' and as a result this film didn't hit me as hard as it could have.

Exceeded my expectations noticeably.

8.5/10 for clarification.

Trainspotting's opening sequence is a beautifully powerful representation of what the film undeniably succeeds at and revels in: quality performances an accompanying soundtrack that energises and propels the picture, deliciously dark humour and excellently crafted dialogue.

Although some of the drama occasionally veers towards being a little tedious, Trainspotting always seem to redeem itself with a hilarious moment or unique line of dialogue.

Throughout it's duration, Trainspotting hosts a commendable number of stunning and original scenes. I personally found the ending to be a spectacular affair that left me reeling to watch the sequel.
