There aren’t any heroines in this film, just heroin. Danny Boyle’s very stylistic film about this drug taking over the lives of a group of friends in Scotland is a blast to watch. I was especially thrilled by Boyle’s excellent pizzazz that the film brings. There are two scenes in particular that I love, when Ewan McGregor falls through the carpet like quicksand, and McGregor’s detox scene with the baby on the ceiling. McGregor was excellent for sure and I loved his scenes with Kelly MacDonald. I normally dislike movies just about drugs but this one kept my attention and was pretty interesting and enjoyable.
