Buy Trainspotting from

Ive heard about this movie for a while now. A movie that centers around four blokes and their heroine habit. A lot of folks went both ways on this movie, but I have to say personally that it was pretty damn good. Sure, it is quite disturbing in some points and just plain gross in others, but the direction style mixed with the subject matter really worked together. Excellent soundtrack, excellent direction, great acting (this guy can play the young obi-wan any time) really put this movie into a good light. The DVD is another Miramax fumble. Not 16x9 enhanced, no extras but a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. I wish these guys would get off their asses and make a decent disc for once. Overall quite a good flick, but you better have a strong stomach.
