Cas Harlow takes a look at the Blu-ray release of this dark comedy drama.
Thanks for a good detailed review! Not seen this as yet so will probably look to purchase what looks to be a very solid blu ray release. I'm a huge fan of Welsh and have read Porno, Ecstasy, Trainspotting and Glue....but for some reason, not Filth. I do love his books and writing style however so it's good to hear that this remains faithful to his book.
Really looking forward to giving this disk a spin. Have read the book about three times and it's one of my favourites, glad to read it is a faithful representation. Desperately wanted to see it at the cinema but it didn't make it to Singaporean screens.
Looks like Welsh on top form again. Great casting.
great review of a great film especially the performance from McAvoy,very very dark in places,so much so that It made me feel really uncomfortable at times,(far far more so than Trainspotting ever did)which probably makes it a one time watch for me.
Great film. Agree strongly with the above, it is very uncomfortable viewing in places.
Made Requiem for a Dream look quite cheery at times.
Superb film with macavoy on top of his game.it does indeed make for some uncomfortable viewing but it's all necessary in keeping with the book.
Let's get porno made now please
Good review and Id agree with about 7/10. Its a shame about the push towards 'darkness' towards the end where it loses the black humour as that's when the film 'lost' me a bit and I found it difficult to enjoy watching.
Definite rental though.
Nice review thanks.
Really enjoyed this not decided yet on whether it'll be the Blu-ray Steelbook or 'normal' release.
