Just Love the movie Trainspotting. Well it is a 1996 movie, and well I am not that into type of movies like Trainspotting, so I missed it..It's been a couple of years now since I stumbled upon the poster of the movie, and I promise myself to have a copy. And guess what I don't have a copy up to now. But thanks to the power of the internet and my very useful Limewire downloader I already have a DVDripped of the movie. But I think it's still best that I have an original DVD/VCD copy of it, so I better add it on my wishlist! hehe!
Anyway, here's a synopsis of the movie:
Smart, funny, sickly and sometimes just plain unconscious, Mark Renton is a hero of our times. Set in an underbelly of Edinburgh the city fathers never dreamed of, this is the story of Mark and his so-called friends--a bunch of losers, liars, psychos, thieves and junkies. This tragi-comedy charts the disintegration of their friendship as they proceed, seemingly inevitably, towards self-destruction. Mark alone has the insight and opportunity to escape his fate--but does he really want to "choose life"? On and off heroin, he continually weighs the pros and cons of straight living: "car, career, family, fucking big television, washing machines, compact disc players, electrical tin openers, good health, low cholesterol, dental insurance, starter home, leisurewear, and a choice of sweaters..." When he breaks it all down, choosing life doesn't seem all that promising and he's off to the next scheme and score.
Ewan McGregor as Mark Renton Ewen Bremner as Spud Jonny Lee Miller as Sick Boy Kevin McKidd as Tommy Robert Carlyle as Begbie
My Fave Scene: The one where Mark is having hallucinations during his rehabilitation. It was eerie. The death of the baby of Sick Boy is haunting him. Well for the Soundtrack: I like the music on the final scene, which is Born Slippy by Underworld!
Truly a very wonderful movie. A movie which depicts that everybody deserves second chances. And it really is a choice to live life and your future!
