    Rolling Stone

    "...The lasting after-effect of watching TRAINSPOTTING is a sense of exhilaration..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...A dark, Tarantino-style humor courses through its veins...This hip rave-up is zippily entertaining....Ewan McGregor delivers his needle-sharp narration with raw charisma" -- 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
    USA Today

    "...Thrillingly squalid, scabrously funny..." -- Rating: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    "Scabrous, brutal and hip, TRAINSPOTTING is a CLOCKWORK ORANGE for the '90s....[The] performances are terrific at all levels..."

    "...A larkish black comedy, paced like a Beatles musical yet grounded by the charming misanthropy of Irvine Welsh's best-selling novel....[With] a starmaking performance from Ewan McGregor..."
