Trainspotting 
Trainspotting review
3.5/4 stars

A group of friends Mark Renton's (Ewan McGregor), Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), clean living health buff Tommy (Kevin McKidd) and the war freak Francis Begbie (Robert Carlyle) encounter various escapades. Renton chooses to be a heroin addict, Tommy dies of toxoplasmosis (The parasite infects most genera of warm-blooded animals, including humans, but the primary host is the felid (cat) family.), Spud goes to prison (instead of Renton who was with him when they were caught stealing), Sick Boy loses a baby and makes a deal for a bag of heroin and Begbie become violently infuriated after losing £16,000 in the end of the deal. I suggest using subtitles for the thick accents and to not miss the amazing dialogues.

A film that stresses maturation, effects of drug abuse, friendship, attitude and choices. The pictures soundtrack clearly brightens the mood of each scene and the screenplay was exceptionally written. Some of my personal favorite lines: Renton – “Now I'm cleaning up and I'm moving on, going straight and choosing life.” “Choose life…Choose a family… Choose your friends.” Sick Boy – “It's certainly a phenomenon in all walks of life… at one time, you've got it, and then you lose it, and it's gone forever.” Trainspotting may have its dark, ghastly and shocking scenes, which its main purpose is that in itself, because of the effects of the characters actions which teaches us about morality and drug abuse combined with humor and a bit of crime drama, which can be related to life.
