Trainspotting (1996)

 Rated R or else we wouldn’t fit in with these druggie degenerates.


The 42nd hit of your Next 100 Project heroin injection takes us into a gritty, gross and often goofy world. Danny Boyle’s ode to the glorious highs (and dizzying lows) of the H has more energy than an atomic bomb. Bev’s boyfriend Ewan McGregor leads a nutty cast of essentially foreign-language actors. Strap in, but you oughta get another addictive substance first…Sparkplug Coffee.
