About the Movie

James McAvoy plays Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson, a scheming, manipulative, misanthropic man who spends his time indulging in drugs, alcohol, sexually abusive relationships, and "the games" – cruel plots and systematic bullying of his coworkers and friends. While working on the murder case of a Japanese student, he starts coming unhinged, slowly losing his grip on reality and suffering from a series of increasingly severe hallucinations as he desperately tries to hold his life together.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: After a certain point, watching it is like listening to the ravings of an increasingly incoherent and abusive drunk. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, May 29, 2014

Fresh: Filth, directed by Jon S. Baird from a 1998 bestseller by Trainspotting wild man Irvine Welsh, is wired to explode. Even when the film falls to pieces, McAvoy's bonkers brilliance will blow you away. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, May 29, 2014

Fresh: For a film boasting only marginally fewer producers than it does speaking roles, there's something impressively unguarded about Filth. – Guy Lodge, Variety, Nov 24, 2013

Fresh: Credit the filmmakers with descending persuasively into the swampy squalor of a diseased mind. If you're in the mood to go there with them, Filth offers an indecently bracing wallow. – Bob Mondello, NPR, May 30, 2014

Horrible film with no direction. Basically a cluster of who cares scenes with some drugs,sex and violence mixed in. No plot one of the worst films I have seen this year.
