Part of the An Edinburgh New Year Season
A shocking, subjective trawl through the Edinburgh heroin culture of the 1980s, Irvine Welsh's cult novel was hardly an obvious choice for the team who made Shallow Grave, but Danny Boyle's film is truly a triumph. Audaciously punching up the pitch-black comedy, juggling parallel character strands and blending image, music and voice-over with a virtuosity worthy of Scorsese on peak form, Trainspotting the movie captures precisely Welsh's insolent, amoral intelligence. Combined with a iconic lead foursome of McGregor, Bremner, Miller and Carlyle, it's a Scottish classic.
