This review is from: Filth [DVD]  (DVD)
Saw Filth in the cinema last night and was blown away by it. Don't think I've seen a film like it. McAvoy is astonishingly good. How he manages to take a character that's racist, sexist, homophobic, alcoholic, and a drug addict and somehow keep you hoping he'll find redemption is a true masterclass in acting. Its blend of humour, brutality, surrealism and deeply emotional drama is expertly done. Not a film for everyone (the clue is in the title!) but I can guarantee if you see it, you won't forget it. Trainspotting launched Danny Boyle's career. Expect the same to happen for director Jon Baird.
