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.
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.
Fresh: For a film boasting only marginally fewer producers than it does speaking roles, there's something impressively unguarded about Filth.
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.
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.
Haven’t seen this kind of movie and it’s a crazy and tense movie never knowing where your going to end up! Great watch
