From the director of 28 DAYS LATER ... The motion picture sensation that wowed critics and audiences nationwide, TRAINSPOTTING delivers a wild mix of rebellious action and wicked humor! It's the story of four friends as they try to make it in the world on their own terms ... and who end up planning the ultimate scam! Powered by an outstanding cast of stars including Ewan McGregor (BIG FISH, STAR WARS EPISODES I, II & III) Robert Carlyle (THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH, THE FULL MONTY) and Jonny Lee Miller (DRACULA 2000, MANSFIELD PARK), and a high-energy soundtrack, TRAINSPOTTING is spectacular, groundbreaking entertainment!
Even though the packaging may state something else, the menus of this two-disc set label it "the definitive edition." New 2003 elements are added to pieces created for the film's release and Criterion laser disc. The Retrospective features are labeled "Then" and "Now" and smartly don't cover the same ground. For example, "The Sound of the Film" explores sound mixing in the "Then" segment and the popular soundtrack in the "Now" bit. Other highlights include new interviews with key behind-the-scenes talent and several worthwhile deleted scenes. The multi-angle presentation on the needle injection scene will test your nerve. Best is how much interest and energy the talents ooze throughout the discs. "The "international cut" restores a few seconds of footage, but the deleted scenes are not incorporated as they were in other versions. --Doug Thomas

The horror of alcoholism/addiction and that of the psychopath Begbie is flawlessly rendered.
This is part of a mad world that we live in. It is reality and true.
There is a way of lucidly enduring this planet though and that is a persons own deep spirituality. Be your own peaceful loving spiritual warrior that dissolves the way of life that this film depicts, that is the way out my fellow brothers and sisters. I know because I live that way of spirituality on a daily basis and for over two years leaving alcohol behind.
A good film for the recovering alcoholic or addict to see.
So with that, "YES THAT'S A "8#$@% DANCER!!" (right?? yeah??? did I do that right? come on you know.....when Ewan's character Renton gets his opium suppositories from the toilet!!) Whatever, just buy the stupid thing. Max OUT!!
Surprisingly this movie is not dated and still looks great.
Understanding the spoken words by these Scottish punks was difficult for this American small town kid, mostly due to the thick accent, as well as, lots of regional slang that was mostly lost on me, but I was able to get the gist of what was being said. But, it gives reason to watch this more than once...I suspect that is what has elevated this 20 year old flick to cult status. I have just watched this for the first time, this week. I had never even heard of it before.
I liked the cinematography, the images of run down buildings, and the over feel of misery...really it's great Art. I believe overal, that this movie is well done for what it is and I enjoyed the story line, but 80% of the drug use in the first half of the movie seemed gratuitous to me...hence the downgrade to 3 stars.
As to this DVD set, There have been a few different releases, I always seek out films with lots of bonus features/featurettes. This one (Directors cut, collectors edition) has a lot of bonus features/featurettes. If this is your type of movie and if you are like me and like all that crap, , , this is definitely the DVD package you want.
