TRAINSPOTTING

Part of Midnight Movies.

Director Danny Boyle’s slick adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s tale of Renton (Ewan McGregor), a junkie in Edinburgh’s booming drug scene, as he attempts to break the cycle of addiction and escape the unfortunate trappings of a circle of friends who are also users. Sporting an outrageously stellar soundtrack absolutely brimming with classic tracks by the likes of Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Brian Eno, and Lou Reed, the film’s hyperkinetic clip and stylistic direction perfectly capture the feeling of a time and place where riding the line between euphoria and heartbreak is just a matter of getting your next fix. We revisit this classic of drug cinema just in time for the film’s 10-year follow-up, T2.
