Trainspotting

Danny Boyle

This black comedy about the lives of Edinburgh junkies takes the viewer for a rollercoaster ride, providing for an instantaneous high but eventually leaving you dizzy and asking for more. Adapted from Irwin Welsh’s novel of the same name, Trainspotting has become a pop-cultural phenomenon, due to its accurate as well as entertaining portrayal of heroin addiction and rehabilitation. Despite the Academy Award achievements of his later film, Trainspotting is still considered to be Danny Boyle’s chef-d’oeuvre.
