Where's Oscar for McAvoy?
15 December 2018
If you like "Trainspotting", you'll love this one. "Filth" is also an adaptation of Irvine Welsh's novel and, although the stories do not have much in common, the movies share a specific atmosphere that will pin you to the screen. Its name fits perfectly, because the film is uncompromisingly dirty. James McAvoy plays a corrupt police detective who would stop at nothing to get his promotion. But behind the mask of a self-confident macho chauvinist, there are hidden secrets that the movie gradually unfolds, up to the totally wicked twist at the end. Although McAvoy's character is almost utterly bad guy, his rude and ruthless charm will mesmerize you and make you be on his side all the time, even when his behavior is inexcusably brutal. In addition to his undoubted acting talent, Mcavoy dedicated himself to the credibility of his performance, so he drank lots of whiskey in order to make his role of heavy alcoholic and drug addict more convincing. His transformations throughout the film, and the powerful expressions of psychological states and emotions of his character definitely deserve an Oscar. Although the film is full of insane moments, surreal scenes and filthy humor, "Filth" is primarily a powerful and shocking drama about a man who is falling apart inside, but whose life thought him that he must not show it. The film brings this phenomenon to surreal extremes, but essentially it is something with which many of us can identify, and I think that's precisely what makes McAvoy's character rather antihero than a villain, and what makes us sympathize with him.
I would just like to mention the remarkable performance of Jim Broadbent, whose surrealistic scenes make this film even more bizarre, and if you pay attention, you may notice tributes to Stanley Kubrick's cult films "A Clockwork Orange" and "Odyssey". 8/10
#nowspinning • Trainspotting OST
One of the best complications of some of the UKs greatest bands of the 80s and 90s. Having seen this movie a few times, I think the most memorable was at @hwdforever with a screening in the graveyard that led up to @bellesglasgow playing at midnight. T2 was also pretty good and had a phenomenal soundtrack. Love the inclusion of @wolfaliceband on that one 💚
Литература на языке оригинала.
Вы когда-нибудь задумывались, как иностранцам понять в переводе суть и красоту произведений Фёдора Михайловича Достоевского или, например, Владимира Маяковского?
Не носителям языка «дух» этот просто не доступен. Как и нам в обратной истории.
Ирвин Уэлш признан культовым писателем поколения и одним из лучших авторов, передавших стиль и время Шотландии рубежа XX-XXI веков. Футбольные фанаты, андеграунд, рейвы, зависимость и моральные переживания людей «с района». Читать его книги, которые написаны на шотландском диалекте крайне затруднительно (особенно если нет специального лингвистического навыка и должного уклона в образовании), правда именно эти страницы максимально погружают в атмосферу и жизнь другого человека.
Учить языки, значит быть на шаг ближе к иному миру. И в путешествиях, и в фантазиях.
"Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life. But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?" #trainspotting#dannyboyle#irvinewelsh#johnhodge#ewanmcgregor#ewenbremner#jonnyleemiller#kevinmckidd#robertcarlyle#film#filmquotes#cinema#movie#art
Trainspotting é um livro do escritor escocês Irvine Welsh, publicado em 1993. Explicitando toda a dor e a banalidade de ser jovem em um mundo de portas fechadas, onde a maior oportunidade que se pode esperar é conseguir um emprego reles em uma grande empresa, ter filhos e desfrutar de uma velhice obesa, Irvine Welsh narra, com ironia e sem meias palavras, o cotidiano de jovens que renunciaram a tudo isso, que preferem se perder em um mundo de contravenções, vagar pelas ruas sem rumo, a ceder a uma vida adulta que não faz o mínimo sentido.
