Trainspotting's saving grace is that there's a heck of a lot of entertainment value in this particular form of shallowness.

Trainspotting, buoyed by a great Brit Pop soundtrack and Brian Tufano's agile cinematography, captures the stoned-out, gut-churning experience of hardcore addiction with hallucinogenic acuity.

The characters are without recognizable virtues, and neither they nor the movie asks us to like them. But they are full of energy and underplayed wit, endlessly picking themselves up off the filthy floor.

Trainspotting is a searing pop-art portrait of a lost generation blowing out its brains. As they rail, chuckle, shout and dive into darkness, you're trapped yourself between a bellylaugh and a scream.

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.

A cocktail of scuzzy charm, nerve and despair that seduces and repulses in nearly equal proportions. It packs a jolt, all right. But it leaves you with a brutal hangover, too.

It would be hard to imagine a movie about drugs, depravity, and all-around bad behavior more electrifying than Trainspotting.

Scabrous, brutal and hip, Trainspotting is a Clockwork Orange for the '90s.
This may not have the weight of 'Great Art', but it crystallises youthful disaffection with the verve of the best and brightest pop culture. A sensation.

The experience of watching Trainspotting -- the electric, nasty and slick descent into the milieu of young Scottish junkies -- is a little like speeding through the digestive tract of some voracious beast.

Trainspotting is a singular sensation, a visionary knockout spiked with insight, wild invention and outrageous wit.

Exuberant and pitiless, profane yet eloquent, flush with the ability to create laughter out of unspeakable situations, "Trainspotting" is a drop-dead look at a dead-end lifestyle that has all the strength of its considerable contradictions.

...rapid-fire youth-culture freak show: random sex, in-your-face scatology, senseless violence and rampant profanity delivered in haggis-thick brogues.

Hip, brutally honest and humane...
New York Times
1/1/2000 by Janet Maslin
For better or worse, sometimes strictly for the sake of shock value, the stylish irreverence of "Trainspotting" mimics that drug high and delivers its own potent kick.

A few patches are subtitled, but the general effect is of watching an opera without having read the libretto.
San Francisco Chronicle

This is not dour social realism. It's a shot- from-a-cannon youth movie, with likable young people sticking needles in their arms in working-class Edinburgh.
1/1/2000 by Jonathan Rosenbaum
Far from nihilistic, though certainly calculated to butt up against various puritanical norms, [the film is a] feel-good jaunt about young Scottish heroin addicts and their degradation and betrayals of one another.
1/1/2000 by Roger Ebert
The movie has been attacked as pro-drug and defended as anti-drug, but actually it is simply pragmatic. It knows that addiction leads to an unmanageable, exhausting, intensely uncomfortable daily routine, and it knows that only two things make it bearable
1/1/2000 by James Berardinelli
This isn't an examination of the Scottish drug culture from the outside looking in, it's one from the inside looking out.
