1,000 years from now there will be no guys and no girls, just wankers. Sounds great to me.- Trainspotting.

"Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a f**king 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 suite on hire purchase in a range of f**king 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 f**king 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, f**ked 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? "

- Renton, Trainspotting.

Sounds interesting. That could be a life. Drama is basically life, but without the boring parts, anyway. Never heard of that film.

I've been wanting to see this fim for ages!! Too bad I always seem to download it synchronised in italian - three times by now. Meh.
Oh and I love Non Je Ne Regrette Rien...I actually know it by heart even though I only understand bits of it..haha.

I actually cannot believe how empty I feel not having seen it. Looks better than most of the same-period films I've watched in my life... Great tracks on your i-pod :)

Trainspotting is one of my all-time favorites!
And I think I actually have this very same quote written down somewhere. Great movie.
