Trainspotting * Danny Boyle (1996)

Posted in arthouse, comedy and tagged on by .

An oldy again. I saw it a long time ago and recently it was on TV. I suppose all of you have seen this film a few times already, so this review is just for the possible single left who didn’t. Danny Boyle made the wonderfull film “Shallow Grave” (like “Trainspotting” with Ewan McGregor), the not so great “A Life Less Ordinary” (also with Ewan McGregor but also Cameron Diaz), films that I haven’t seen like “The Beach” (with Leonardo Di Caprio) and one that I still want to see “28 Days Later”, among others of course.
“Trainspotting” gives a grim inside in the life of a heroine addict, the addicted periode, the process of getting rid off the addiction, etc. All is told in a totally Scottish manner and with a wonderfull sence of humour. The filming isn’t as strange as I remembered, but all in all this is still very enjoyable.
