Hilarious, imaginative and very anti-drugs
Renton is a heroin addict. He is one of a group of friends who live their lives day to day and hit to hit. When he tries to kick the habit he manages it for a while but eventually falls back into his old way. Meanwhile his friends are as messed up as he is, whether it be Spud’s pathetic addiction, Begbie’s violent rages or the fact that he is sleeping with a girl who still goes to school.
When it came out this film was very hyped, the poster became a must-have on every student’s bedroom wall and the media went nuts over it’s supposed glamorisation of drug use. The plot is very difficult to summarise, as it doesn’t really have a narrative flow other than the very disjointed experience of Renton. However it manages to be very funny and imaginative all the way, using many different tricks and touches to be funny. The dialogue is very well written and I must admit I found it a lot funnier than the last few comedies I watched.
The media may have condemned this film as promoting drug use, but I can only imagine that they watched a different film from me. Sure, the film shows drugs as being fun and enjoyable but, like Renton says, `why else would we do it?’ However the film clearly shows a massive downside where people’s lives are destroyed, people OD and lives go day to day just trying to get high. True, it does show this downside in a stylish and funny way but there is no question that the film is promoting drug use in any sense.
Too often I see films that are style over substance; Trainspotting gets it just perfect, stylish but not at the expense of dialogue, character or film. It is helped by a great cast. McGregor jumped to stardom off the back of this role and he deserved it. He keeps his character both likeable but repulsive at the same time and carries the film with surprising ease. The support cast is excellent, even if they lack the same good character of Renton. Whether it is the comic Bremner, the violent Carlyle or the tragic McKidd. While not all their characters are well developed, they do all give good accounts of themselves, whether it is comic or showing the effects of heroin on their lives.
Overall this is a great film that is refreshing to see now without all the `cult student cool’ hype or media feeding frenzy over it’s supposed pro-drug approach. It is stylish, funny, depressing and downright sobering.
After reading some of the reviews that trash this film I had to speak up.
This film is gritty and dirty. There is content which is not pleasant, swearing and violence amounts other things. What else would you expect a film about drug addiction to be about? Well more than that actually, it about choices and what you Choose! Never at any point did this film make drugs look at all appealing to me in any way, I never did understand why so many people thought that it did. At no point did it ever say “Look at this, its cool.” For those who think the level of swearing in this film is too much then they clearly haven’t spent any time with working class people in Britain, not just Scotland. I being one of them can say its fairly accurate in that account.
That being said, those things do not take anything away from the film, the quality of plot and story, or the acting which is Stunning! Robert Carlise as Begbe was excellent, and Ewan MacGregor shined. Also the character Spud was worth a mention he really was quite good.
This film is in my Opinion a work of Genius, that represents the book accurately.
