Plot Summary

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

Mislabeled as a comedy

James Mcavoy has always been a solid performer in any movie he's been in but never been a stand out. That is until now. Mcavoy goes for absolute broke as a corrupt cop that descends into madness the longer the movie goes on.
The tone of the movie reminded me a lot of the movie Fight Club. A very shocking, overly nihilistic character study where the final 30 minutes will be the most revelatory to the character and you'll have to decide rather the journey you took with him was worth it. I was surprised to find out it actually was.

This movie was funny and entertaining,

Trainspotting Meets Thriller

If you are a fan of Irvine Welsh you will love this movie. Disturbing and drug fueled story of one man's life hitting its denouement.
