This was one of the movies I gave you to choose earlier! Transpotting got the second most votes =]
"Renton, deeply immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene, tries to clean up and get out, despite the allure of the drugs and influence of friends."
This 1996 movie is a really shocking one! Danny Boyle (The Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours, 28 Days Later, The Beach) has done a great job on directing this. He is able to touch a rough subject through firstly seeming totally on it's side and them slowly switching to a graphic and brutal look into heroin addiction. Portrayal of drug addiction is done through often funny moments. One of my favorite parts of the movie is it's soundtrack. It has a good mix of music in it. Ewan McGregor does a great job as the lead role. Other actors portrait there characters pretty good as well!
However, this is not a film for kids. At some points it is really brutal. I believe everyone should watch it.
I give it 9.2/10
My favorite quote from the movie:
"Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed- interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisure wear and matching luggage. Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing you last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you have spawned to replace yourself. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that?"
