I think I saw this film at a ‘blogger event’. It actually turned out to be an industry preview event where journalists saw previews of films. It was amazing. This was one of them. Film about three men who are at different stages recovering from sex addiction. It’s labelled a comedy but it is a serious subject. There isn’t a crystal clear happy ending but there is a sense these guys will get through their issues and hopefully be better.
My guess is that this will be popular. A drug fuelled hell storm adapted from the pages of Irvine Welsh and brought to the screen by Danny Boyle. It is a cult classic 90s film about a group of heroin addicts living and shooting up in squalor in Edinburgh. There are some memorable scenes, as who can forget ‘the worst toilet in the world’ and Spud’s morning accident. Both vile but apart from these scenes, the film is iconic so it almost seems a shame it has a sequel coming out.
I do love Steve Buscemi but my gad this film is depressing. Buscemi directs, writes and acts as Tommy, an alcoholic who doesn’t do much apart from sit at his local bar, along with the other regulars. He drives an ice cream truck around for a while, then has a weird relationship with a 17 year old then gets beaten up and gives up. Tommy is down trodden and continues this way throughout. There isn’t really an uplifting moment.
