Product description

Product Description

The real story of youth in the nineties is this: chemicals, clubs, bars, pubs, mobile phones, trainers, combats, care-less, monged, mashed, sorted, safe.

From Amazon.co.uk

Five best friends, 48 hours and a bucket-load of ecstasy pills make for an enjoyably lightweight slice of pop-cultural ephemera from debut director Justin Kerrigan. Cardiff is the city, and hardcore partying, clubbing and pubbing is on the menu as Jip (John Simm) and his renegade band of McJobbers clock off and head out for a weekend of debauchery. Among Jip's hedonistic posse are the cheeky cockney drug-dealer Moff (Danny Dyer), the terminally jealous boyfriend Koop (Shaun Parkes), and the bad-boy magnet Lulu (Lorraine Pilkington).

And that's pretty much it. Our heroes meet in a pub, get drunk, take drugs, go to a club, then to a party, then home, and then meet up in another pub, just in time for the closing credits. Along the way there's a shamefully lethargic attempt to establish character back-story: Jip is temporarily sexually impotent because his mother's a prostitute; Koop's father is institutionalised; Lulu has nasty boyfriends; and Moff has conservative parents. But generally Human Traffic is happier at the heart of the party, celebrating the intoxication of club culture--which it does in style. Kerrigan pulls out all the formal stops with an energetic melange of jump cuts, slo-mo, and speeded-up "smudge" motion camerawork. There's also direct addresses to camera, fantasy sequences and some self-conscious cameos from DJ Carl Cox and former-drug dealer Howard Marks, author of Mr Nice. Wall-to-wall music from the likes of Fatboy Slim, William Orbit and even Primal Scream help paste over the occasional cracks in the veneer, which include some particularly duff lines ("We're gonna get more spaced than Neil Armstrong ever did!") and a drawn analysis of drug references in Star Wars, a nod to the films of Kevin Smith, such as Clerks, Mallrats and Chasing Amy. And if the whole project already feels dated and empty, well that's because it perfectly captures an essentially 1990s moment, and one gloriously empty weekend. --Kevin Maher --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1998's 'Human Traffic' is a laugh-a-minute British film, which takes a comical, but very accurate view of the British club scene and youth culture. The movie focuses on five young people in their early twenties, who live for the weekend so they can drink and take drugs. A very simple plot (if you are able to call it that), but this is a portrait of the 1990s, and a film that you can easily watch again and again. All of the characters are likeable and it is easy to identify with at least one of them.

With an all-star British cast, including a young Danny Dyer in his first movie appearance, and John Simm who is particularly good. 'Human Traffic' is an excellent feel-good film, complete with a perfect soundtrack of electric tunes, if you are able to remember the 1990s, you will love this. Grab a few drinks, a packet of smokes, maybe a group of mates, and enjoy it.

If you're really keen, then buy the Human Traffic Remixed [DVD] [1999] version instead, where you'll get the original film, plus a whopping 80 minutes of bonus features, including deleted scenes, two short films, and an extensive making-off featurette.

The best acting I have ever seen Danny Dyer do but unfortunately a bit of a let down. No real story and you certainly need to be h**h to enjoy it.

Fun film, not to be taken too seriously. There is obviously a social commentary aspect to it, but I think it's best enjoyed for the lighter, surface meaning.

I think everyone should watch Human Traffic at least once. Although I don't know of many people who don't watch it over and over again and are able to quote the script word for word.

This is the flip side to the political view of drugs culture. Human Traffic shows a pretty average weekend in the lives of people who like to pop pills and party hard after a crappy week at work. It's funny, it's touching and if you've ever partied without the need for legal drugs then you'll find lots to identify with.

What the politicians don't tell you is that it's the world that they've created that makes this form of escapism so necessary. But don't get me started on that one ...

My advice ... stick this in the dvd player, skin up and enjoy.

This film is a good laugh. It is well over the top when it comes to the clubbing scene but it is a good clubbing film none the less. Some good characters and good music. If you want a good film and you are into the scene than watch this, this film did good and there is a reason, because it is good.
