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…

”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…
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…
Driven by beats of dark comedy, bleak tragedy, human drama, and character-based energy, Danny Boyle's "Trainspotting" is a layered look at the transition from youth to adulthood. Deftly sidestepping genre definition, this look is marked by addiction, sex, death, and Scotland. Boyle yanks the film from comedy to drama and back, but the coming-of-adult-age story speaks straightforward truths about life's harrowing journey.
Revolving around a group of Scottish friends who are more enamored with heroine and violence than they are adult responsibilities, "Trainspotting" charts the highs and low of addiction, friendships, and life's misadventures. Ewan McGregor's Renton is the focus of the story, and, through him, the audience examines the stylized and filthy debauchery of the heroine habit and the…
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.
so raw it was like eating sushi while sitting on a bench at the train station waiting for a train that you can never get on because it passes by too quickly
Enjoyable on so many levels. Stylistically brilliant, amazing cast, great acting, perfect soundtrack, and a captivating story. Probably my favorite Danny Boyle film yet.
Movie was pretty interesting I had to watch it with subtitles the whole time.
this was so wild and i loved every second
Creative and original story, great acting and direction, good cinematography, it was just here and there as a story.
The metaphor of "trainspotting" is a apt one for a film that seeks to document individuals wasting their lives with herion. The irony is that watching this movie was, for me, Trainspotting — with two essays to write, a 300 page book to read, a language mid-term to study for, and 6 comedy pieces due, I was not "choosing life" when I decided to rewatch this film. However, the ending, where Ewan McDonald decides to give up herion and conform to social norms, giving a speech while walking into the out of focus camera indicates that submitting to life is just another way to waste time, that we're all approaching death and mucking about until then. So maybe doing my work is just as pointless as watching Trainspotting. Who knows?
Every moment is disturbing. But glorious. I hope this doesn't skew my view of Scotland too drastically. Shoulda read the word version first, but Ewan is cute so it's okee
finally got round to it and i wish i had a long time ago
Leaves a lasting impression on the harsh reality of heroin addiction in Scotland. Remains somehow darkly funny, with compelling characters and an interesting overarching plot.
my favorites that i love primarily because of visuals (colors, symmetry, overall cinematography) regardless of plot, characters and anything else…
