T2: Trainspotting review

Written for the Glasgow Guardian:

In 1996, Danny Boyle was at the top of his game. A young and hungry Mancunian director with an eye for vibrant, dynamic visuals that drew inspiration from the likes of Kubrick, and an ear for iconic, on-the-pulse soundtracks, his sophomore film Trainspotting was his calling card, launching not just his career but those of everyone involved – not least the young Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle and Kelly Macdonald. 696 more words


[Growing, growing]... Grown

It’s really funny how little things can inspire you to get off your arse and do something. Not ‘ha ha funny’, rather, the scary but deeply motivational kind of funny that makes feel like all the planets have aligned for a microsecond. 1,275 more words

Las cinco traiciones (y media redención) de 'T2 Trainspotting'

La traición número 1: Trainspotting arremetía contra todo. La alergia de la novela de 1993 y de la película de 1996 a la moralina redentora las alejaba de otros retratos de jóvenes desfasados que marcaron a la generación que por primera vez se asomaba a la cultura a principios de los noventa. 931 more words
