Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It would be hard to imagine a movie about drugs, depravity, and all-around bad behavior more electrifying than Trainspotting. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 26, 2013

Fresh: Trainspotting is a singular sensation, a visionary knockout spiked with insight, wild invention and outrageous wit. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jun 26, 2013

Fresh: The film is about joy -- in conniving and surviving, in connecting with audiences, in its own fizzy, jizzy style. And that's why, compared with it, most other films look zombified. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 26, 2013

Fresh: Scabrous, brutal and hip, Trainspotting is a Clockwork Orange for the '90s. – Derek Elley, Variety, Jun 26, 2013

Still no other movie quite like Trainspotting. Raw, funny, sad, creepy, gross, perfect.

It makes you uncomfortable, in all kinds of ways. Raw, check. Disturbing, check. Funny, check.
