Feel free to add on! Cats love to fuck shit up and that's why i love them.
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.
Whether it be a liquid, a solid, a piece of entertainment, an activity, we all have our own addictions of any kind. Some worse (and more deadly/risky) than others, but the fact remains we've all had our moments of it once or twice or even still suffer with them to this day.
Sadly, it's easier to simply say you'll quit doing something you know is bad for your well being than actually doing it. Because what many overlook is something that good old Renton (Ewan McGregor) points out in the film's opening sequence; for as much as people focus on the down falls of such risks, what many always over look is the pleasure most experience when doing it.

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…
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…
The best British film of the 90's. Gritty and as real as it gets.
The best films are the one's that artistically give a visual ride while providing a viewer with interesting characters. Trainspottingcan be described as both of those things. This movie is a fast, but well paced fun ride. It's shows the trauma and dependence of heroin in a perfect way. In a way this movie shows the best of both worlds. Choose a normal life, or live a little while demeaning both of them. I don't plan on shooting up anytime soon, but I see the appeal. More awareness needs to be shown for Heroin. Heroin ruins lives, but Trainspotting shows that after all the hits in the world...you can choose life.
Absolute Masterpiece. 10/10
YESSS SICK BOYY
Aged better than I expected it to have, only Underworld on the soundtrack and superfluous Allen brothers jarring with a universal tale of addiction, desperation and hedonism. The set-pieces rightly stand up while Renton's character arc is unflinching in its' honesty of the highs and lows of drug use. Let's hope the sequel doesn't cause too much damage.
man this was depressing at first then it became really interesting
not at all Shite™
i just wanna thank whoever is responsible for letting me live in a universe where a sequel to this masterpiece happens to exist
This film fucking sucks. The opening scene had me hyped, all fuck boring traditionalism. It's disgusting with its pasty actors and fecal matter in every scene. Don't waste your time.
I've been very hit or miss in regards to Danny Boyle's work. Well Trainspotting is a hit. This frantic character work is beset by some great sequences including excellent camera-work, fantastic acting, some mildly surreal imagery, and a fantastic opening and closing monologue. Following the exploits of a group of heroin addicts in an economically depressed part of Britain (Edinburgh apparently), the film explores their varying moral character and struggles with surviving and fighting addictions.
Our main star is played by Ewan McGregor in a role that helped put him on the map. It's certainly a role he deserves accolades for. His character seems to encompass the character of the film. Of desperate hope and clinging to what little anchors…
It's not often a movie turns out as brilliant as the book it adapts, but Trainspotting pulls it off thanks to a strong script and great directing from Danny Boyle. One of many movies where Robert Carlyle shouts into cameras and makes you feel uneasy.
All the films from all the editions, including those subsequently removed, presently totalling 1187. An easy way of seeing how…
