Watch - Filth
Adapted by the novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh, Filth, starring James McAvoy is a great night out at the movies, quite unlike any other. McAvoy plays Scottish police office Bruce Robertson - a crazy, bipolar, drug addict, alcoholic, always horny, somewhat confused man - sexist, racist and every other kind of "ist" that it is possible to be. You cannot help but love him, and "the games" that he plays on all of his colleagues in an attempt to land himself a coveted promotion in the force.
This movie is laugh out hilarious in parts (the Christmas party and trip to Hamburg) and touching in others (especially the Radiohead ending). Director Jon S. Baird has managed to capture the spirit of the novel and McAvoy is especially brilliant as Robertson. McAvoy is supported by strong performances from Jim Broadbent, Imogen Potts and especially Jamie Bell.
See Filth in cinemas now.
