Trainspotting (1996)

I knew nothing about this movie prior to watching, and now that I’ve seen it, I still don’t really know anything about it. It’s about a heroin addict getting clean, I guess? He has drug addict friends and an underage ‘girlfriend’ who blackmailed him into dating her after he slept with her. It’s a British movie, set half in Scotland and half in England, so everyone has some type of thick accent. I actually hate Scottish accents so I was cringing the whole time. But the cinematography is great, and even though British films with comedy are never actually funny, I thought this one had some mediocre laughs in it. My favorite character is Sick Boy, because Jonny Lee Miller looks hot in it. I expected not to like it during the first 45 minutes of the movie, but the ending really makes up for whatever depressing anti-excitement I felt throughout the beginning.

Rating: C. I did learn that ‘trainspotting’ means shooting up drugs.
