This is what happens when your car breaks down on a Sunday morning and you have nothing else to do…
Renton is living the dream and that dream is Heroin. As Renton struggles with the agony and ecstasy of his life we follow him and his increasingly unstable mates. Drinking, fighting, drugs, sex and the most disgusting toilet in Scotland. Choose Trainspotting.
The word "trainspotting" can mean alot of things.
It literally translates to the phyisical act of watching trains, whether it be for a hobby or for recreation.
It's also commonly used as a term for shooting up heroin because the substance moves through your veins like a train on a track.
In the context of Danny Boyle's masterpiece, the word means all of the above. The life of a heroin addict could be summed up as the act of watching trains. You are watching hundreds of lives pass you by as the train speeds past. There are people going many different places. There are people coming from heartbreaks and there are people heading towards a new life. The addict isn't…

Film #69 of Project 90
”Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?”
Trainspotting is the definition of the word crazy, like its protagonists Danny Boyle’s wild, uproarious and super-dynamic film is shooting heroine all the time. With a central character who can’t control his juvenile impulsiveness, a screenplay full of unforgettable little moments (“My pleasure in other people's leisure!”), a soundtrack to die for and Danny Boyle’s reckless visual style Trainspotting is one of those culturally significant films that changes the medium forever and manages to modify the way we approach movies, it is a movie that captures the spirit of a specific time and place perfectly, a cult, or a modern classic if you like.
Danny Boyle’s film is…
Rich storytelling, terrific performances and vibrant direction make Trainspotting an uncomfortable, albeit exhilarating surge of filmmaking.
This film makes me relieved I'm more of an alcohol man than a druggie...
The first time I saw this film some years back (like middle school), the only thing I took away from this is that it was that it was...weird. I didn't quite "get it".
Now after years of learning shit and experiencing shit, I think I finally "get it" and from what I get or think I get, I'm starting to love this.
This gives you an understanding of drug addiction and why drugs are bad without coming off as a PSA. It comes off as a very honest portrayal. It shows us the ins and outs of the drug; what makes it beautiful, ugly, mesmerizing, and…
A sickeningly realistic look into the lives of drug addicts. This film was graphic, humorous and depressing all while remaining incredibly raw. You do feel a sense of sympathy for these characters even though they are completely acting on their own free will. The film really emphasizes the feeling of being powerless when it comes to drugs, how everything in life seems to be just filler until "the next hit".
The performances, across the board, were amazing. Robert Carlyle as Begbie, for me in particular was really outstanding. It was with this character that the film showed drugs were not the only outlet for destruction. Begbie was fueled by alcohol and extreme anger, which created a very violent and at times, very scary character.
Beautifully shot, brilliantly acted and masterfully adapted from Irvine Welsh's novel of the same name, Trainspotting is definitely not a film to miss. I can't believe I've waited this long.
Pretty cool film.
Kinda like Requiem for a Dream.
Man, Obi Wan did a lot of heroin.
i really can't believe that danny boyle made a shitty film like "slumdog millionaire". and, he also made this one. damn! this film was breathless, pumping out britpop, restless youth and their misdirections, 90s, and inherent sadness in the foil of pretentious fun. this film is of a genius and yes, one of the best british films i have ever watched.
Includes Cat Burglar (Scene Stealer).
Kids, don’t do drugs, because dead babies will haunt you in your sleep. Just don’t do drugs, drugs are bad, mmkay?
