Editors Note
Note A kinetic, intimate look inside the subculture of heroin abuse, this acclaimed adaptation of Irvine Welsh's novel follows the misadventures of Renton, a brash, twenty-something Edinburgh junkie, and his nihilistic chums Tommy, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie. Alternately comic and off-putting, the film ultimately comes down to Renton's choice between self-destruction or life. The stellar soundtrack should not be missed.
Memorable Quotes
Quote "We called him Mother Superior on account of the length of his habit." -- Renton (EWAN McGREGOR), about one of his dope-dealing friends.
Quote "Choose life. Choose a job. Chose a career. Choose a family. Choose a... big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed- income mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends.... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life: I chose something else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?" -- Renton (EWAN McGREGOR)
Quote "[Begbie] didn't do drugs, he did people." -- Renton (EWAN McGREGOR)
Quote "You know Rents, for a vegetarian, you're a mean shot" --Sick Boy (Johnny Lee Miller)
Rolling Stone "...Electrifying....Harrowing and hilarious..." 06/13/1996 p.60
Sight and Sound "...The lasting after-effect of watching TRAINSPOTTING is a sense of exhilaration..." 03/01/1996 p.52-3
USA Today "...A dark, Tarantino-style humor courses through its veins...This hip rave-up is zippily entertaining....Ewan McGregor delivers his needle-sharp narration with raw charisma" -- 3 1/2 out of 4 stars 07/19/1996 p.1D
Entertainment Weekly "...Thrillingly squalid, scabrously funny..." -- Rating: A 08/09/1996 p.45
Variety "Scabrous, brutal and hip, TRAINSPOTTING is a CLOCKWORK ORANGE for the '90s....[The] performances are terrific at all levels..." 02/12/1996
Film Comment "...A larkish black comedy, paced like a Beatles musical yet grounded by the charming misanthropy of Irvine Welsh's best-selling novel....[With] a starmaking performance from Ewan McGregor..." 07/01/1996 p.2-12
